A Christmas disaster strikes
It wasn’t looking like it was going to be a great Christmas for this national retailer. Their existing conveyor was finally beyond economical repair due to its age and condition after having been used 7 days a week for 12 years. It was heavily relied on as it was the only method of staff getting bulky items safely between floors in the warehouse – including lots of potential Christmas presents.
Just as their sales were ramping up, their conveyor broke down.
PJP to the rescue
The organisation rightly called on PJP Conveyors to assist. We understood how vital these conveyors were to operations, especially so close to a major trading period.
Our strategy to ensure continuous operations was to attempt a temporary repair to see them through the period until a new conveyor could be supplied. Much to the delight of the client, we were able to carry out the repair successfully to enable limited use of the existing conveyor.
A sustainable long term solution developed
Meanwhile, the rest of the PJP team pulled out all the stops to get a new conveyor designed, manufactured, delivered & installed in less than 6 weeks from original breakdown being reported!
We also managed to get all the associated electrical controls replaced and upgraded so that they met current safety standards.
Christmas miracles (available any time of the year)
This is the closest PJP and the client got to a Christmas miracle, because our quick thinking and speedy turnaround truly saved the client from a very sticky situation.
