RDFL’s expertise in transporting liquid products is one of the key reasons for Sto’s long standing relationship with the company, as Logistics Manager Stephen Catterson explained. “We pride ourselves on being an ethical company in everything we do. Our slogan is ‘building with conscience’ and it’s very important that the pails are delivered in a manner that matches that claim. The render is a paint-like product and although it’s not hazardous it needs to be handled with great care so that it arrives on site in pristine condition. Spillages or damage of any kind are just not acceptable.”
Last year RDFL delivered around 14,500 pallets to 2,600 locations in the UK for use on major building projects including the new Kent History & Library Centre, the waterfront regeneration project at Cranfield Mill in Ipswich, and the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury.
Despite challenging times in the construction industry, Sto is expanding its operations in the UK and plans to open a new warehouse in Birmingham during the early part of 2013. Rhys Davies’s regional depot in Tipton is only ten miles from the new site and will provide an ideal location for receiving liquid products for onward delivery to Sto’s customers.
More than just transport
