Instarmac has installed a new VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) racking system.  This modern storage method allows for more than 2,000 tonnes of stock to be kept in a relatively smaller area and leading to increased productivity.

Such VNA storage allows ‘inter-leaving’, meaning that operatives can ‘put away’ and ‘pick’ orders simultaneously.  Up to 26 pallets of product can be efficiently stored in an hour.

Warehouse storage space has now increased by 50%.

The Instarmac manufacturing facility now runs with both VNA and Satellite racking systems, allowing for even more effective storage of daily fast-moving ranges.

This means that the business is in an even greater position to supply product for immediate delivery, directly from manufacture, on their 26-strong fleet. This is certainly British manufacturing at its best.

Instarmac is home to the Ultracrete, Ultrascape, Ultra Tile, Ultra Floor, Wondertex and i-fix® brands – servicing contract, architectural, local authority and distribution customers across the UK, and worldwide.
