Substantial investment at PHS Teacrate has paid off as the UK’s leading crate rental company attracts several new clients following the installation of a new crate washer. Amongst the new customers are major logistics integrators in the global automotive industry and major supplier to the food industry.
These contracts mean that PHS Teacrate will need to roll out extra shifts on the new Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) washer at its plant in Curdworth, West Midlands. This easily provides the required capacity of 100,000 units per month and further scope for several other sizeable RTP customers. In addition to offering the highest quality and hygiene standards, PHS Teacrate is also able to accommodate a trailer on site to enable customer vehicles to "drop and swap", thus minimising turnaround time. The washer also boasts a drying section ensuring that when they are returned to the customer all crates, pallets and trays are thoroughly dry, thus preventing water damage to products.
PHS Teacrate’s major new wash customers have provided very positive feedback on the service so far with one commenting; "We’ve been very impressed by PHS Teacrate’s flexibility and ability to wash and dry our complete product range. Some of our logistics customers have very complex supply chains so we need to be able to count on our suppliers. PHS Teacrate has demonstrated the reliability and consistency that enables us to provide the high quality of service that our customers have come to expect."
"We’re delighted to be taking on projects of this type " says Simon Johns, PHS Teacrate’s Sales Director. "The range of RTP that we now deal with really shows off the capabilities of our new washer and proves that PHS Teacrate can deal with larger volumes while continuing to maintain the highest standards."
While PHS Teacrate now has the capacity to deal with larger clients, it still offers exceptional service to customers requiring a smaller quantity of RTP units. With no minimum delivery, PHS Teacrate is confident it can deal with the crate rental, washing and packaging needs of businesses of all sizes.
