The increasing need for consistent quality and greater output while keeping costs down have seen garment manufacturers making the maximum use of the space inside their factories thanks to modern garment handling and storage systems that reach up into the roof space.

Keeping everything under one roof while increasing production and capacity often means that the only way is up into the hitherto non productive space above head and below roof height. Creating a custom environment that combines the latest in automated conveyors, racking and storage with mezzanine floors and office partitions is proving to be the best way to move forward for many UK garment manufacturers.

The nature of the garments themselves makes them highly suitable for automation in many aspects of their manufacture, storage and movement. The sound reasons for getting a new or upgraded garment conveyor and handling system include trying to reduce costs per unit, reduce mistakes re-works and inefficiencies, speed up production while making it easier and safer to manage, and get the products to the customers on time.

Steve Cockayne of SHS Contracts Ltd a manufacturer of bespoke conveyors and conveyor systems has over 30 years of specialist experience in the garment handling market through . “Making the best use of the space you have is important. A really good conveyor or conveyor system can make huge improvements to, effectiveness, efficiency and safety” says Steve.

Mezzanine floors are another superb way to create space that adds value. Combine this with office partitions and you can create a bespoke working environment that’s aligned to your specific production and business processes” says Steve.
