Supply chain specialist Fowler Welch is increasing its ambient soft drinks operations sector after winning a new UK contract by global carbonated drinks manufacturer Cott.
The new contract will extend existing operations to include Cott products and will cover 15,000 pallets over a minimum two-year period from Fowler Welch’s Ambient National Distribution Centre in Heywood, Manchester.
Global soft drinks manufacturer Cott supplies own label and own brand soft drinks to major UK retailers from its three major bottling and can facilities at Kegworth, Nelson and Pontefract in the north of England.
Fowler Welch managing director Nick Hay said: “We’re delighted to be continuing to work with a global business such as Cott. This new contract is another example of our commitment to developing and growing relationships with our existing customers.
“We have a strong ethos of listening to our customers, responding to their needs and delivering the most efficient service that will help them meet their business goals. The contract really demonstrates the diversity of our offering across all stages of warehousing and distribution.”
“We are looking for a logistics partner that supports our continued growth of business by moving finished goods from our local manufacturing facilities, to consolidate and deliver them to specific customers,” said Stuart Keith, third party logistics contracts manager at Cott. “Our experience of working with Fowler Welch and its ability to offer a day-one-for-day-two service, operating 365/24/7, offers Cott a fast moving, responsive supply chain network. This allows the company to maximise manufacturing efficiency while meeting our service demands.”
