Amethsyt Logistics Group Case Study

Amethyst Group Ltd., a leading Supply Chain and Logistics Company have won the contract to handle all the storage and distribution for Prominent Apparel Ltd. After a long tender process they chose Stockrail International Ltd., for the supply and installation of a new hanging garment storage facility at their Fradley Park site.

amethsy-cst01Distribution Centre Manager Andrew Slater said “we selected Stockrail for the project because of their level of service, their professionalism and desire to think outside the box”.

Stockrail’s brief was to supply a new hanging garment storage in an area over the main loading docks, therefore a mezzanine floor covering an area of 1,600 m2 was designed to span over this very busy, congested area.

On top of the mezzanine the main storage system was constructed from Stockrail’s Diamond Rack racking system.  The system was designed as a two-tiered storage system at a height of 6.2 metres with an open steel deck constructed for the walkways. The system has a storage capacity of 400,000 units but in the way the system has been designed, Amethyst has the potential to store an additional 200,000 units giving their customer, Prominent considerable future expansion.

The whole system is serviced by Stockrail’s new HangerGlide system a manual overhead hanging garment transport system.  From the receipt of garments from the vehicles via an extendable boom system, this can halve the time for loading / unloading vehicles, through to the incline conveyor system servicing the first and second levels, handling up to 20,000 garments per hour.

On completion of the project Andrew Slater said “we are delighted with the overall project as Stockrail completed the handover within our timescales and to the budget”.
