Consignment Stock

Project: Consignment Stock – Critical Spares
Duration: From October 2015 – On Going
Value: £90,000 +



Given the nature of the business activities on this site; plant breakdowns without early warning signs meant the site engineers were struggling to meet the down time required to have the plant back up and running. Delays in bringing the plant back on line, such as laboratory supply and extract systems, were causing vital experiments to be cancelled as a knock-on effect.

Cbb offered a consignment stock holding off site at a location nearby, of all critical engineering components. Working with the on-site engineers, supervisors and managers a list of items critical to the building was drawn up.

The spares were purchased, boxed, labelled and stored at the agreed location. Open invites were agreed for checking the items to ensure the spares were ready at a moment’s notice. The products varied from sink taps, control equipment, valves, motors and inverters.

Cbb also offer a 24 hour call out facilities and all of the stock is available to be either collected or delivered.
