STILL, suppliers of forklift trucks, platform trucks, tractors and warehouse handling equipment, recently contacted Bott to kit out their brand new, purpose built workshop in Exeter, Devon.
Paul Penny, Workshop Team Leader at STILL said: “With STILL moving to a brand new workshop facility, Bott was the first choice for all our new workshop storage equipment. We have used their cabinets, and benches over the past 15 years and have found them well manufactured and built to last to stand the test of time. Bott have such a wide range of storage equipment available, allowing us to pick each item to suit our specific individual requirements”.
Bott supplied cupboards, workbenches and mobile trolleys from the heavy-duty, high-quality Cubio and Perfo ranges, all customised in the STILL brand colours of orange and grey. The modular product forms individual workstations, with simple, adaptable, space-saving storage systems for tools and equipment, enabling the engineers to work more efficiently and safely.
The department houses a wide range of facilities for its students, from scopes, network analysers, PCs and other electronic equipment for measurement purposes to analogue testers, circuit boards, hardware/software development tools and robotics.
As part of the project package, Bott provided a full consultancy service, working closely with the department to develop its ideal combination of benches and cupboards. This system allowed the Bott design team to specify tailor made solutions to meet the university’s requirements for bespoke sizes, shapes and colour scheme.
Paul added: “One of the biggest benefits from using Bott was the ability to customise each new unit with tooling holders, displaying our tools in a well presented way, making them readily available for use. All of this has become a major part of how we use our 5s lean process & Kanban systems in our workshop environment enabling us to keep to our extremely high standards.”
Bott and STILL share high standards when it comes to production and manufacturing, so we’re delighted to see our products help another great business achieve their goals and continue to thrive in the UK market.
