Great Bear reconfigures warehouse

06 April 2021

3PL GREAT BEAR selected AR Storage Solutions to add new pallet racking and reconfigure its 20,000 sq m warehouse in Nottingham.

Part of Culina Group, Great Bear offers nationwide warehousing and distribution solutions for leading international customers. 

Culina Group capital projects director Andrew Collinson explains: "The Great Bear warehouse in Nottingham required a brand-new racking solution accompanied by some layout modifications to transform it into a more flexible operating facility. We are delighted to have entrusted AR Racking and to now have a warehouse with capacity fully optimised."

The project included the dismantling and disposal of old non AR pallet racking and the installation of new AR adjustable pallet racking resulting in a storage capacity for 17,400 pallets.

“We had to deal with the added complication of Great Bear requiring to keep the warehouse fully operational while we dismantled the old pallet racking and replaced it with new AR pallet racking equipment," adds AR Racking UK key account manager Mike Smyth.

The installation of adjustable pallet racking also has a number of dedicated mesh deck panels and individual adjustable mesh dividers to create a quantity of low-level pick locations for Great Bear. 

Adjustable pallet racking systems come with a wide variety of accessories for the storage of any type of products, making this type of racking highly versatile. It is also a storage solution that allows maximum use of space, due to the ease and speed in adjusting the load levels to adapt them to specific volumes. In this case the top beam level is 8.75 m high.
