Moving Stories: Chaucer Logistics supplies services to new major distributor
A global organisation has expanded its presence in the West Midlands by opening a new location in the affluent market town of Rugby. Designed to drive local enterprise and job opportunities in the region and further afield, this is a key milestone for the company, forming part of its £6.4 billion investment in the UK since 2010.
As an international supplier of furniture logistics, Chaucer was called upon to deliver and install vast quantities of pre-built furniture to the Rugby site, removing the waste material as part of its reputable service.
For Chaucer Logistics, the main scope of the project involved the positioning and assembly of furniture in the required locations outlined in the client’s brief. Working in collaboration with the distributor’s furniture providers, Nowy Styl Group, Chaucer Logistics installed furniture across many areas of the building including: canteen areas, open plan offices, cellular offices, meeting rooms and other smaller rooms.
Although the company had its own representatives on-site to move the furniture, complications soon emerged when strike-action across the Channel unfortunately delayed and complicated the project’s delivery schedule. The delay inevitably meant Chaucer had to provide assistance where necessary.
Adding to this complexity, there was a large amount of indecision as to where the furniture was to be placed. Compared to other projects, the drawing for this project wasn’t as accurate; therefore this posed some challenges when it came to installation.
Speaking of Chaucer’s services, Adam John, Project & Site Coordinator at Nowy Styl Group, said: “We have used various installation companies previously, but given the size and nature of the furniture for this project, we decided to go with Chaucer. Chaucer’s team members were extremely positive, diligent and accommodating, adapting to the difficult demands of this project.”
“This was a tough project, but Chaucer was a breath of fresh air. We look forward to working with them again in the coming months.”
Completed in the allotted time and not without complexity, Chaucer Logistics has ensured the safe, timely installation of furniture for this major distributor’s latest offering in one of the UK’s thriving regions.
