News: RediRack signs Qatar distribution deal


RediRack, the Rotherham-based pallet racking and mezzanine floor manufacturer, has signed a distribution agreement with Qatar-based Darwish Trading Company.

The agreement will see Darwish take on responsibility for the sale, installation and on-going maintenance support of RediRack's range of adjustable frame and beam racking as well as RediFloor's mezzanine floor and steel structures across Qatar and elsewhere in the Gulf region.

The group's solutions ensure that warehouse owners get the most efficient use out of their space and include bolt free pallet racking and automated pallet storage, retrieval and sequencing systems. Other parts of the RediGroup specialise in interior design and fit-out services and the supply and installation of mezzanines and structural floors.

Andrew Forsythe, chief executive officer of RediRack's parent group, RediGroup, said: "We are delighted to be working with Darwish Trading. RediRack has been one of the UK and Europe's most popular storage systems manufacturers and suppliers for almost 40 years and our agreement with Darwish will enable us to bring the RediRack product offering to the expanding market in Qatar and the rest of the Gulf region. It is an exciting opportunity for ourselves and Darwish."

Mahmoud Basri from Darwish added: "The infrastructure and logistics sectors within the Qatar are placed to witness impressive growth in the next decade and we expect to be able to capitalise on this growth with the RediGroup range of products and specifically pallet racking and mezzanine floors. We believe that this agreement will be hugely beneficial for RediGroup and Darwish."

Redirack was originally developed in Canada in the early 1960's and has been produced in Belgium since 1968 and the UK since 1974. The RediGroup has an 100,000 sq ft manufacturing plant in Kilnhurst and has over 70 employees. They underwent a management buy out from its former owners, the Norwegian based multinational, Dexion Group Limited, in 2004.

Since the takeover, Redirack has expanded its headquarters to accommodate the growing demand for its mezzanine floor product, Redifloor.

The creator of the world's first adjustable frame and beam pallet racking is investing over £4m over the next five years including a ground breaking Innovation Centre at their head offices, creating much needed jobs in the area.

Finance has been secured from the government's Regional Growth Fund and from Finance Yorkshire.
