News: Redirack toasts ten year Greggs partnership


Rotherham based RediRack, the creator of the world's first adjustable frame and beam pallet racking, is celebrating ten years of supplying food on the go retailer, Greggs, helping them to sell approximately 140 million sausage rolls each year.

With a 100,000 sq ft manufacturing plant in Kilnhurst, Redirack'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.

During its long relationship with Greggs, RediRack has supplied and installed racking and other storage products to Greggs' dedicated ambient, chilled and frozen storage facilities throughout the UK.

Peter Boughton, group production project manager at Greggs, said: "RediRack's solution is perfect for us because it is scalable. Because it can be changed easily, it is both cost-effective and time saving.

"The RediRack project team always respond to our changing needs in a timely manner, helping us find cost effective solutions that allow Greggs to save time and money."

Gary Marriott, who has handled the Greggs account on RediRack's behalf for the past decade, added: "Because we have been manufacturing our racking the same way since the mid-1970s, it is straightforward for us to adapt Greggs' storage systems or add additional pallet spaces as required without having to introduce an entirely new system every time one of Greggs' sites is reconfigured.

"We always go the extra mile to deliver projects on time and within budget, responding to Greggs changing needs where necessary. Our scalable storage solutions have supported Greggs' growth in a cost effective way and we are delighted to have had such a long and successful working relationships with Greggs."

The RediRack system is very popular within the food industry due, in part, to the fact that it is easier to maintain and keep clean than alternative systems – something which makes compliance with stringent food industry hygiene regulations simpler to realise.

With backing from the Government's Regional Growth Fund and Finance Yorkshire, Redirack 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.
