Making better use of space

A new racking system has been designed, supplied and installed at Dextra Lighting’s new warehouse in Gillingham by Locators Storage Systems (LSS). By making maximum use of the 70m x 40m warehouse has created about 1,500 pallet locations at the facility.

Dextra’s production has increased by a fifth in the past 12 months, resulting in it becoming one of the leading suppliers of commercial and industrial lighting to major wholesale outlets nationwide. The cater for the increased production , Dextra built an additional warehouse close to its head office and which was fitted out by LSS.

When this area was no longer sufficient, LSS created further storage by clearing an adjacent warehouse and installing new storage to make maximum use of the available space.
