Wiltshire Council Warehouse Case Study

Simon Lambdin, Facilities and Asset Management Support Officer at Wiltshire Council has worked with Rackline to install a new racking system to create additional space for stock. 

The Brief:

Our Westbury warehouse previously featured a large open space, ground floor office and canteen, which inspired plans to transform the unit with an efficient, made-to-measure storage system. We also needed a safe and secure storage solution for confidential items, and we heard about similar projects installed by Rackline. 

The Process:

Aidan Moss, Rackline’s Business Development Manager, and the design team were very patient with us as we put pen to paper to form plans for our new warehouse racking system. 

Rackline visited our site several times, working directly with us to create realistic designs and provide the most accurate quote ahead of the installation.  

The designers included the height of the room in their plans with the idea of creating taller storage and freeing up more floor space for staff. Another key factor considered in the planning was holding stock from other teams, this often left us nearing full capacity in the past.  

Once the planning and costing was complete and we were happy with everything, the new racking system was installed to replace our previous shelving.  

The Solution:

Following the installation at our Westbury warehouse, the racking has made a huge difference to how the warehouse staff organise and hold stock from external sites, allowing safe storage under one roof. 

We’re thrilled with the result which will allow Wiltshire Council to utilise space and hold stock securely and efficiently. We can’t wait to work with Rackline again on our upcoming main warehouse as well as a potential mezzanine floor project, which will involve moving from pallet racking to widespan on both levels of the unit. 

Would you recommend Rackline?

Yes, I would definitely recommend Rackline. Aidan and the team were friendly, helpful and patient throughout the entire process. The installation was seamless from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble! 

Jen, Lee and I would like to say a massive thank you to the guys who installed the racking. They were very helpful and extremely hard-working. They even left the site without any mess! We really couldn’t fault the service.
