4 Aces has now completed its long-awaited office move, with the popular packaging specialist settling in to over 32,000 sq ft of warehouse space, holding 2000 pallets and 1,500 sq ft of office space, with parking and space for multiple container vehicles deliveries, on River Way Industrial Estate in Harlow.
The accomodation gives the company over triple the square footage of space it had at its previous address and will enable 4 Aces to continue with its ongoing expansion plans and best manage its rapidly accelerating growth.
The move, which has cost 4 Aces in the region of £550,000, has triggered further investment in the company, including the purchase of two new VNI (Very Narrow Isle) forklifts, running on state of the art wire guide technology, with the capacity to reach up to 40 ft of racking, running on electrical devices; and an automated order system with hand held scanners, linked with stock, to avoid picking errors. The supplier has invested heavily in the latest technology to ensure that the company’s impeccable customer service record is maintained in the face of significant growth.
The new commercial space incorporates a meeting room, kitchen and bathroom facilities and a large open plan space, including hot desk areas for members of the sales team and space to accommodate visiting clients so that they can access wi-fi and embrace flexible working, operating in comfort from 4 Aces’ offices. There is also a ‘gold seal’ room containing versions of all the company’s products, to-date, for ease of reference.
Director of 4 Aces, Ray Penn is looking forward to welcoming customers and suppliers to the new base: “The company is moving on to a whole new level as we step up our operations. It’s great that we can boulster this period of expansion with a move to bigger premises, furnished with the right technology and equipment to future proof our growth.”
Managing director of 4 Aces, Chris Penn adds: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us and I’m delighted that these offices will present us with the opportunity to take an inclusive approach and bring our clients in to share the space, as and when they need.”
Since its inception in 2001, 4 Aces has built up a vast network of manufacturers from all over the world. Using a stringent process to identify its preferred suppliers, the company is committed to investing in its manufacturing partners to ensure its product offering is amongst the widest and most creative and that all orders are completed and delivered quickly and with the utmost efficiency.
