Wincanton and IKEA

Winning a new distribution contract with Swedish furniture giant IKEA, Wincanton the Chippenham based British logistics firm invested in two new distribution centres with a total of 500,000 sq. ft. based in the Harlow and Medway areas to handle store- based and online sales.

As a preferred supplier to Wincanton, ESP were proud to be chosen to provide Electronic Security solutions comprising state of the art IP CCTV, Access Control,
Intruder and Automated Vehicle Barriers to both sites. The networked systems ensure the high levels of security to ensure TAPA accreditation as well as assisting in the operational and health & safety requirements within the DC.

As part of both projects, workings closely with Wincanton Project and Loss Prevention managers as well as the Main contractor ESP were tasked with designing and installing a standalone IP network throughout both DC’s to “future proof” the installation and to enable future expansion as and when it is required. The systems were installed within a tight schedule and within budget to ensure completion and handover to the client.
