The Client

Dunelm is the UK’s No.1 homewares retailer, with over 170 stores throughout the country and a turnover in excess of £1 billion. Founded in 1979, the company has grown to become a FTSE 250 listed multichannel retailer with almost 7,000 employees.

 

The Project

In 2010, Dunelm began fitting mezzanine floors at all of its new and refresh stores in order to increase retail selling space and improve product storage capacity, while enhancing customers’ in-store experience. Dunelm chose Transdek to install lifts at each site as a safer and more cost-effective alternative to forklifts.

The Results

To date, Transdek has fitted 120 lifts throughout the Dunelm estate. We keep a stock of parts to enable us to manufacture lifts quickly to meet Dunelm’s flexible lead times. Standard lifts have a platform size of 2450mm x 1900mm, smaller lifts 1500mm x 1500mm.

“We have worked with Transdek since 2010, which is testament both to the quality of their products and the exceptional customer service they provide us. They understand the pressures of our business and are able to respond to our tight deadlines, completing most installations in under six weeks from order.”
