PPB moves to enhance customer service
PPB has now completed its move into a specifically converted warehouse and office premises at Cross Green in the north east of Leeds, which houses the company’s paper-based products, together with its new industrial plastics and Westland digital display portfolio.
The move, which involved over 100 trailer loads of stocked items being moved from the old site andalso included the relocation of PPB’s in-house sheeting and re-rewinding equipment, saw and guillotine, will enable it to operate from a single 61,000 sq. ft. warehouse that offers 4000 pallet spaces and a bespoke layout, thus ensuring faster order response times due to improved workflow and a wider selection of stocked items.
In addition,PPB has also taken the opportunity to update the dust extraction function on its Schelling saw by installing a Modesta system, which not only removes dust and debris more effectively, but is also quieter and more energy efficient than previous equipment. This investment will lead to improved quality with a reduced risk of dust contamination on converted products.
The new warehouse is located one mile from Junction 45 of the M1 and is close to PPB’s previous Leeds address. This investment follows the company’s move into a specially designed warehouse and office premises in London in 2015, from where it services its customers based in London and the Home Counties.
There will continue to be very close stock management between London and Leeds, with same day delivery available, as well as an out of hours delivery service if required, with larger accounts often benefitting from two to three deliveries per day.
Commenting on this latest move, Richard Proctor, Managing Director for PPB said:“ “This investment is part of our ongoing strategy to provide the widest range of plastic, paper, board, display materials and finishing services for the screen and digital display markets and the further investment in machinery and stock now enables us to provide a high value service to signmakers, fabricators and wide format digital print companies.”
