Asda awards automation maintenance contract
01 November 2021
Asda Logistics Services has selected AMH Material Handling for site-based maintenance programmes at its George clothing warehouses.
MATERIAL HANDLING, automation and maintenance specialist AMH Material Handling has been awarded another three-year contract for the maintenance of all material handling machinery at Asda’s George clothing warehouses.
The automated warehouses are located at four sites: Brackmills, Lymedale, North East Clothing and Wynyard. With on-site maintenance engineers stationed at each site, the total asset management maintenance programmes deliver 24-hour support, 365 days a year. This include preventative maintenance protection, while AMH’s engineers will look after a combination of its own installations and equipment installed by other firms at the sites.
The site-based maintenance contract review process took a total of six months for the Asda Logistics Services team to complete. It resulted in the renewal of an existing contract with AMH Material Handling. AMH was successfully awarded the contract after demonstrating its existing and future value; its proven track record of health and safety and legislative compliance, and its impressive performance in continually exceeding expectations and SLAs.
“AMH Material Handling work as an extension of our team; their people are embedded and aligned with Asda’s way of working. They support us strategically, from concept and design through to delivery, whether in ‘business as usual’ or project integration.”
Asda Logistics Services senior director – engineering Nathan Bower, says: “Over the last five years, AMH has provided an excellent level of service supporting the Asda business, whether that is through site-based maintenance teams within our automated sites, or through the delivery of a number of innovative engineering projects. Such projects include the latest autonomous mobile robot installation in our parcel sortation centre. In every aspect of their work, AMH strive to deliver great quality and value to our company.”
Asda Logistics Services vice president Jon Parry adds: “The AMH Material Handling team has been engaged with Asda since 2008, and has over 60 years of combined senior management experience. AMH Material Handling work as an extension of our team; their people are embedded and aligned with Asda’s way of working. They support us strategically, from concept and design through to delivery, whether in ‘business as usual’ or project integration.
“Working collaboratively with our partners this way gives both parties excellent opportunities to strengthen commercial relationships in and around Asda Logistics Services. In turn, this supports technological and commercial growth and diversity in the business.”
