Lighting manufacturer awards logistics contract
10 January 2024
KINAXIA LOGISTICS has agreed a three-year contract to provide UK distribution, warehousing and other services for a global lighting company.
Ansell Lighting designs and manufactures interior and exterior lighting for the commercial, domestic, industrial, retail and architectural markets.
Its multi-million-pound stockholding is housed at distribution centres in Warrington and Belfast, from where it dispatches more than 400,000 items a month.
Ansell has appointed Kinaxia to distribute products to customers across the UK, and to provide warehousing, contract packing and overseas shipment.
The distribution operation is being led from Kinaxia’s hub in Trafford Park, Greater Manchester.
Ansell’s distribution director Mark Stanley said: “Customer service levels are very important to us, and we wanted to work with a partner who shared our values and would be able to deliver the fast, efficient next-day service that our customers have come to expect, in order to continue to grow our business.”
Kinaxia sales director Nicky Woodman added: “Working with the Ansell team to integrate our IT systems has ensured a seamless transition and the highest possible standard of service.
“Our partnership has extended beyond the contract awarded for the distribution element to providing warehousing, contract packing and European shipments, and we look forward to further developing our relationship with the Ansell team into other areas of its business.”
