Pallet and container service provider CHEP has renewed its contract for Norbert Dentressengle to manage its Hoddesden site.
In 2005, CHEP chose Dentressangle on to manage the service centre in Dunstable.
Last Dentressangle invested some £4m in the opening of CHEP’s new service centre to replace the Dunstable facility. It is now planning to invest an additional £300k in automated pallet stencilling equipment.
CHEP’s facility in Hoddesden has a 2,200 sq metre plant building and a six acre yard with capacity for 173,000 pallets. It has 24 repair benches on two production lines and handles up to 170,000 pallets per week.
Pallets are inspected, repaired and painted as required, before being despatched to retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers and growers across the south east of England. Its workforce of 150 people processes some seven million pallets every year.
