Atherton had an issue with the production staff taking parts that they did not need, and the lost stock was becoming a significant issue

Fixing the constraint

When Atherton moved to a new facility, they took the opportunity to upgrade their storage area and make this secure. Heighton built a mezzanine area and installed an excellent hoist to put the store area on the first floor and bulk storage/chemical storage on the ground floor.



Atherton can run the store as a separate business to production. It has given them the ability to load each trolley for each assembly table without the production staff having to pick their part

The Heighton team were fantastic to deal with from the very start of our project all the way through to the end. From the initial design engineering process through to the quality of workmanship and attention to detail, we are extremely pleased with the end result. It has greatly improved the floorspace of our finished goods area and provided an excellent training space for our new staff.
