What you become part of:


Sidcup Distribution Centre is a 24/7 operation and from 2018, our brand new Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) warehouse will hold 25,000 pallets, with a typical annual throughput of over one million pallets.  Every 24 hours we expect to receive well over 1,000 pallets from the on-site manufacturing operation, directly into the ASRS, as well as handling over 100 vehicle movements.  Inbound vehicles arrive from our other factory sites, with palletised goods which must be put away promptly and safely into the ASRS and accurately recorded.  We also assemble orders of full pallets for dispatch to our customers and other sites across our network.  Most customers order bulk pallets, which are assembled from the ASRS and rear-loaded onto third party haulage vehicles.  We also carry out a sizeable case-picking operation within the adjacent conventional warehouse.
