Stair parts manufacturer, George Quinn goes green with Combilift

George Quinn Ltd a stairs parts manufacturer and distributor, has invested in a new electric Aislemaster to add to the multi-directional Combilift bought in 2001 and the original gas Aislemaster bought in 2005. Both trucks are still working as hard as the first day they arrived.

Our Warehouse

The George Quinn site extends to 5 acres with 50,000 Sq. Ft. of warehousing. With every square foot of space costing money it is utilised to the fullest.

Large Stocks and a Quick Turnaround

To give our customers a next day service we must carry large stocks. For maximum benefit, stock must be stored in a safe and efficient system. As a result of continuous investment in products and new designs, George Quinn has over 18 different collections in their stair parts portfolio. Furthermore add to this 10 different materials used, including wood, glass, metal and paint. At any one time we carry over 4000 different stair parts in stock.

How did we achieve our increased efficiency goal?

The Combilift Aislemaster joining the rest of the George Quinn fleet.

During the pandemic we had to increase our storage capacity very quickly. Building more warehousing at short notice in a pandemic was not an option. Combilift warehouse planners (a free service provided) came to the rescue with the perfect solution. Furthermore they provided us with a new warehouse layout that increased our storage capacity by 45% . Previous to this new layout we spent a lot of time moving pallets to get to the pallet we needed.

The Result

As a result we now have a system that requires no such pallet movement. Additionally, stock is visible and stacked on racking and this has increased our output capacity of customer orders by a massive 60%. We could not be happier with the outcome. Furthermore, not only was it more efficient it was designed with safety in mind for our warehouse operators.

The new Aislemaster is our first battery operated truck. We were apprehensive about this but now it has been so successful and has proven to be a big hit with the warehouse operators.

What’s Next?  

The Aislemaster gets to work in the George Quinn warehouse.

Indeed, as part of our ‘Going Green Initiative’ we are now committed to replacing all forklifts by going all electric over the next 3 years.

Safety; Efficiency; Space Saving; Robust; Service; kinder to the Environment.  These trucks just keep getting better.
