Local Bradford based companies form an allegiance as
TouchStar's TS7000 truck mount and TS8000 handheld devices are selected to
support P&B Food's new 220,000 sq. ft. state of the art warehouse
Through hard work and true entrepreneurial spirit P&B
Foods has developed and prospered to become one of the largest and fastest
growing ethnic food importers and wholesale distributors in the UK and Europe.
This growth has resulted in P&B investing in and developing a brand new,
state of the art, 220,000 sq. ft. packing, milling and warehouse facility based
in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
P&B fully appreciate the effectiveness of Radio
Frequency technology having strategically invested in a new rugged mobile
computing system. The system, which will integrate the rugged TS7000 truck
mount and TS8000 handheld by TouchStar, will enable an optimised and
efficiently run warehouse operation that will support the full spectrum of
warehouse activities to include goods in, put away and picking operations.
The devices exceeded P&B's expectations providing fast,
high end and accurate warehouse data capture whilst meeting their requirements
for a rugged and reliable device. The devices were also backed by an
all-inclusive TouchStar support contract, guaranteeing operational efficiency,
decreased downtime and reduced cost of ownership. Mani Bhatoa of P&B Foods
commented, “Following an evaluation period, it's become clear that the TS7000
and the TS8000 will provide the reliable and future proofed technology we
require to support our existing and future operations. Being based local to
ourselves, we’re confident that TouchStar will provide the levels of support
and expertise we require to maximise the potential of their products,
ultimately helping us maximise the potential of our new facility."
Peter Marsh, Sales Director at TouchStar, adds, "I am
delighted that P&B has chosen to work with us on their new RF system
implementation. As a fellow Bradford based company the new P&B warehouse
facility is a massive boost for the area. We are proud to have played a part in
the development of such an impressive facility and look forward to working with
P&B Foods on future projects"
