AJS Labels have been producing self adhesive, digital and flexo labels since 2009. They have used the latest technology to supply clients such as Nestle, Sainsbury’s and The Body Shop for almost a decade. Their employee numbers had increased recently so they were looking to set up a new production facility in the North of England.
Featherstone was identified as the ideal location for establishing their new warehouse. However the challenge for them was identifying a premises that could house their machines, stock and growing number of employees.
Once the building was found, they then needed to employ a design and build contractor that specialised in mezzanine floors to fit out the premises to their requirements. They also wanted a full turn key solution provider, so they could deal with one point of call throughout the whole process.
Due to the specialist nature of their label printing machines, AJS Labels required a temperature controlled room within their new premises. The ideal solution was a storage mezzanine floor which housed the production room underneath. This ensured they didn’t lose any valuable storage space.
During discussions with AJS labels, they also mentioned that they had a problem with food on the warehouse floor, due to having no dedicated space to eat. So the storage mezzanine floor gave us the perfect opportunity to also design a small kitchen on top for AJS Labels employees at lunchtime.
The temperature controlled production room was created through the installation of demountable partitioning. We installed a suspended ceiling underneath the mezzanine to house the lighting and air conditioning system. All electrical requirements for AJS Labels machines were also handled by Nexus.
“We’ve never done a project like this before and without the help of Nexus, it wouldn’t have gone as smoothly and cleanly as it has.”
‘They were great from day one, Cliff who we dealt with came up with some great solutions and the drawings and service we received was great, no other company really did that.’
‘Nexus’ Operations Director Mathew was fantastic with his project plan. It all worked and was implemented on time. Everything was finished within our specifications. It really was high quality work.’
‘Nexus have helped us to develop our site to what it is today and I would most definitely recommend them.’ – Martin Addey, Production Manager, AJS Labels
The new facilities enable AJS Labels to start serving the North of England with their self adhesive, digital and flexo labels and continue to grow their customer base.
‘I would most definitely recommend them, the innovations that they came up with made sure that this happened for us’ – Martin Addey, Production Manager, AJS Labels.
We wish AJS Labels all the best in their new facilities and we hope to work with them again in the future. If you require new facilities within your premises, contact us today and we’ll arrange to visit your premises and carry out a site survey.
