Fruit and vegetable wholesaler Wealmoor has rebuilt its factory at Atherstone on Stour following a major fire two years ago and chose Stertil Stokvis to install 12 new loading docks in a £120,000 project.
The project involved a range of Stertil Stokvis equipment, including dock shelters, dock levellers, bumpers and a number of insulated Thermadoors.
Wealmoor’s loading bays receive bulk deliveries from farms all over the world and dispatch orders daily to all the UK’s main supermarkets. Each loading bay handles a variety of vehicles of different heights and lengths so the equipment needed to be versatile and robust.
Stertil Stokvis supplied and installed a series of WL 574 dock shelters featuring lightweight yet sturdy “collapsible” aluminium frameworks. These shelters are supported by XF 4020 dock levellers incorporating telescopic lips that can be controlled for accurate positioning onto the rear of the vehicle deck.
Mick Rogers, Wealmoor’s engineering and facilities manager, said: “During the rebuild of the facility we wanted to ensure we specified high quality, durable equipment suitable for a broad range of vehicles.”
