Operating from some 200,000 sq ft of warehousing, cold storage and office space, Flexepak is located near the Port of Liverpool container base, and is offering a comprehensive package of services designed to meet the needs of businesses across the UK.
Commenting Martin Cooper, head of national accounts and marketing, "We are part of the Park Retail Group, which has been operating these services exclusively for its own use for some 30 years. We recognized the potential for such expertise in the wider marketplace, and have developed the services into a definitive product offering called Flexepak."
Warehousing: The warehousing facility is housed in units which range from 6,500 square foot to 55,000 square foot, including a caged high value area for expensive items. The Flexepak site is monitored by 24 hour on-site guards, a manned security gate and a newly commissioned CCTV system, with each modern warehouse unit manned by trained, experienced staff skilled in operating modern stock control software.
Storage: Flexepak’s cold storage facility is a state-of-the-art temperature-controlled cold store which can accommodate up to 6,000 pallets. This modern facility contains three separate chambers which allow for product separation and individual chamber temperature variance from ambient to minus 26. Each chamber has its own dock levelling system, enabling a quick turnaround, and a sophisticated mobile racking system gives us capacity to store more products in less space.
Packing: Its infrastructure includes 36,750 square foot of production space and access to up to 500 skilled packing staff. Services include hamper packing, gift pack manufacture, kit assembly, security packing, shrink banding and sleeving; overwrapping, Kimberling, glue dot & hot melt application, labelling, label design and printing.
Fulfilment: The business is structured to handle fulfilment briefs from a one page document to packs containing several bespoke pieces.
