provide Wiggle with new racking system. When multi-million pound Internet based sports equipment company, Wiggle, needed additional storage capacity to cater for its ever-expanding order book, it turned to the Romsey based Spaceway Group. Won against stiff competition against other companies, Wiggle had previously worked with Spaceway and knew its reputation for innovation designs, fast response times and attention to detail.
Established in 1999, Wiggle is a specialist Internet Company providing sports equipment and clothing for cycling, running and active sports. Now Britain's leading online cycle shop, the company has built its reputation on providing quality goods, fast service and competitive prices. Wiggle is the only Internet based company that supplies mountain and racing cycles fully assembled and ready to ride. With a keen eye on Health and Safety, Wiggle fully tests each cycle before despatching it to the customer.
“We have a long history with Spaceway which has always provided us with excellent service”, said Nicholas Pink, Operations Manager at Wiggle. “When it came to finding a company to install the new racking system, we knew Spaceway would provide us with a first-rate job”.
To kick off the project, Spaceway's design team set about creating an innovative design that would enable it to provide both storage and a picking area. The design, based on using a Linpac pallet racking system, enables Wiggle to store around 500 pallets with forklift access and in addition accommodates a pedestrian picking area above. Pallets are stored on beam levels up to a height of six metres with the end frames rising to over eight metres. Walkways have been installed at six metres high with lighting underneath so that a forklift truck can operate safely. Spaceway has also decked out the beam levels for the storage of large boxes, which can be hand picked and accessed easily and quickly at any time.
Spaceway has been Wiggle's favoured contractor since the company was established in 1999. Last year, Spaceway fitted out Wiggle's 2,800 square metre headquarters in Portsmouth with offices and warehousing. The company's designs catered for expansion as volume increased.
“This was the second phase of a large multi-tier project that was installed last year”, said Charlie Jeary, Sales Manager, Storage Division at
Spaceway. “The integral walkways have been designed at the same height as the original installation so that they can be easily accessed.” Ends
