“The upgrade of our loading bay areas has transformed the efficiency of our distribution procedures,” said Dave Baker, manager of AAH Pharmaceuticals’ Tamworth site. “We are now much better able to cope with a greater variety of vehicles and delivery vehicle turnarounds are considerably quicker.

“Also, the incorporation of panoramic windows into the overhead doors has made the bays themselves much brighter to create a greatly improved working environment.”
