We offer a full warehousing service that encompasses storage, distribution and fulfilment, ‘a complete one stop service’. We believe it is the quality, wealth of knowledge and years of experience that sets us apart from any other service provider.
Our speciality is rework, which is sometimes referred to as pre-retail services. These are essentially processes that assist in the retail sale of products. Examples would be applying a price or barcode sticker, changing the pack size, assorting, re-packing, shrink wrapping two products together and applying a new barcode for the twin pack etc.
We often form close relationships with our customers which builds a trust enabling our customers to concentrate on other aspects of their business, while we take care of all their warehousing & logistic requirements. As a result, one client has told us that we are like another department of their business.
We are committed to helping companies with their stock issues. Whatever the problem, we are here to help. We are basically in the business of "providing hands". One of the joys of our industry is that you never know what your next job will be. Examples of previous work include: Cushion stuffing, vase washing, applying transfer stickers to toys, bar-coding toothbrushes, assorting clothing. The list is huge, but we are always looking for new challenges.
Your problem is our challenge!
One service area that has grown considerably is product finishing. We ventured into this area by filling cushions. One of our neighbouring companies manufacture hollow fibre cushion pads, enabling us to offer to insert the pad into a cushion cover, Kimble tag the cushion, and pack into bags. As the pads are made within walking distance, there are no transport costs which means that we keep the price down. As the market is very competitive, this gives us an advantage over some of our competitors. We have now expanded this area to provide other services to companies with unfinished products. The benefit to our customers is being able to increase production temporarily, without capital expenditure.
Costing is simplified, as the cost of the service is known in advance. For example, if you consider taking on a warehouse. Costs can be very unpredictable. First you have the rent and business rates, then water, surface drainage, electricity, gas, telephone, fork-lift, machinery, workforce and management. These are all reasonably easy to calculate in advance, until you add in the variables, such as staff sickness, maintenance and unforeseen complications. Compare this to letting us worry about all of the above, and just paying a few pence per item to have the work done for you.
At Workplace North we take great pride in our ability to assist companies with the preparation of their stock for retail sale.
Services range from simple labelling to product finishing. We offer a full pick & pack service, container loading and unloading plus a wide range of manual services.
