Supply Chain Demand Results in Expansion for Pallet Wrap Suppliers

Future is Golden for Gloucestershire Company
Shipping News Feature

UK - To meet the growing demand from its freight and supply chain customers for its range of products, Golden Valley Pallet Wrap Specialists Ltd (GVPS) has opened a new warehouse and national distribution centre. The company produces environmentally friendly hand and machine pallet wrapping film and the apparatus necessary to utilise it properly. The new facility, which is next to the company’s existing site in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, enables Golden Valley to further increase its stock of pallet wrapping products.

Although only a relatively young company, the business was started just three years ago, Golden Valley has already established itself as one of the leading suppliers of film to both end users and merchants throughout the UK and the additional storage will allow GVPS to hold over £1.2 million of product. Suzanne Griffiths, managing director of Golden Valley, explains:

“We receive deliveries of pallet wrap film from suppliers all over the world and as part of our service commitment to our clients we aim to fulfil orders within 24 hours. This means we need to hold extensive stocks. We rely on an efficient supply chain model and last year we were able to increase storage capacity at our existing store by adopting very narrow aisle storage technology but, quite simply, demand has increased by such a level that we need more storage space.”
