DIY wholesaler, Stax Trade Centres, will shortly open its sixth depot – an 80,000 sq ft warehouse designed to support a full delivered wholesale centre as well as a cash & carry operation in Glasgow. The site incorporates 500 bays, 42 promotion ends, 10 checkouts and a kitchen and bathroom showroom the same size as the company’s flagship Manchester branch.
The whole site will be supported by an STL solution comprising STL MMS, tills and SOP with wireless picking.
Operations Director, Nigel Wright, said:
‘This is the first Stax branch that is being purpose-designed to accommodate a fully delivered operation and a best-in-class cash & carry, as well as the developing requirements of our business. It is paramount that we sustain the standard of experience that our customers have come to expect of our existing branches, and STL has a key role to play in enabling this.
‘As the most modern head office and multi-site management system in the industry, STL MMS gives us tight control, high efficiency and strong buying power as well as an up-to-the-minute and analysable view of the entire Stax business. Most importantly, by improving our reaction times and facilitating sharper strategic planning, STL helps us give our customers what they want, when they want it, at prices they like.’
