In a contract valued at almost £400,000, Stertil Stokvis has provided a ‘one-stop shop’ service to Domino’s Pizza Group for the loading bay area at its busy new warehouse in Milton Keynes. Having outgrown its original site nearby, the pizza delivery company decided to relocate and approached Stertil Stokvis to supply a bespoke and fully-integrated loading bay system.
The Domino’s warehouse accommodates up to 350 vehicles, of various sizes and types, each week. Stertil Stokvis provided 28 sets of X Series telescopic dock levellers and Combilok vehicle restraints, as well as sectional overhead doors, Combi-Seal dock shelters and scissor lift tables.
Stertil Stokvis X Series dock levellers incorporate a telescopic lip which extends in line with the platform. Precise control of the lip extension allows it to be placed accurately onto the rear of the vehicle deck, so that vehicles can be fully loaded or unloaded by pallet truck. The innovative Combilok is an effective vehicle restraint system that improves safety at loading bays during loading and unloading operations, preventing vehicles from being driven away until they are released by an operative within the loading bay.
Dock shelters provide more than just protection from the elements: they also conserve energy and keep flies and other pests out of the warehouse whilst maintaining comfortable working conditions for employees. Stertil Stokvis also has more than 30 years’ experience in scissor lift tables, providing solutions to handling, lifting and goods movement problems, with a range of stainless steel tables for cleanliness as well as high-performance hose-down regimes.
"We’re very happy with the new equipment," says Simon Dar, Warehouse Manager at Domino’s in Milton Keynes. "Stertil Stokvis came up with a bespoke and fully-integrated loading bay system to meet our specific requirements and provided a ‘one-stop shop’ for all the equipment we needed, which saved us having to go to a number of different suppliers."
Domino’s Pizza is widely recognised as the world’s leading pizza delivery company. Its first UK store opened in 1985 and there are now over 627 stores throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
