Established in 1972, Bobby's Foods started from humble beginnings with only a single van delivering to local stores in and around Bromsgrove and the surrounding County of Worcestershire. Now with 100 sales vans and 11 regional depots they needed a warehousing solution to cope with the growing demands of the business.
The policy had always been to have just one forklift truck in each regional depot and use them for unloading duties as well as operating in the racked warehouses; but that presented a number of problems. If the outside of a depot was anything other than perfectly flat Bobby's Foods had to operate with a three-wheel counterbalance truck which meant that they had to allow at least 3.5m for the internal warehouse aisles. Even in the depots with reach trucks it still resulted in aisle widths of over 2.5m so with ever expanding product lines and space at a premium Bobby's Foods made the call to Bendi.
