Trico manufacturing excellence

During the last 100 years Trico UK has evolved from being solely a manufacturing plant, to become a state of the art, rapid response, distribution centre with full testing and approval facilities, serving all of Europe.

The distribution centre, based in Pontypool, is nearly 9,000 square metres and isTrico’s European HQ. It handles the company’s storage and distribution functions and includes pallet racking storage space for 4,300 pallets, with an additional 25% storage capacity with full height utilisation. Approximately 10 million units were distributed through the warehouse last year, with more than 50,000 picks processed and despatched to 165 European customers.

The facility is ISO9001:2008 accredited and offers on-site quality assurance, quality monitoring, warranty management and validation as well as carrying out functional testing, durability testing and product management.

In addition, the distribution centre houses application engineering, customer support and project management, product development and test facilities.

Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson said: “Trico has built its strong reputation by combining an obsession for product performance and customer service with the ability to deliver on its commitment to quality.

“We are continually developing new products, either as standalone ranges or extensions to existing ones, with a commitment to being first to market with new products, thus ensuring our customers never lose out on a sale.

“Trico offers marketing and promotional support to help our customers with trade and consumer advertising as well as seasonal promotions that drive sales.

“We have a comprehensive array of merchandisers to prominently display our products, from the standard 10-hook wall rack to the surpreme 20-hook floor stand.

“There is also a wall poster that has been recently distributed to encourage garages and stores to provide a free wiper check to ensure their customers’ blades are safe.”
