Second generation family owned Safety Boot manufacturer, Rock Fall operates from one secure site based on Wimsey Way in Alfreton, Derbyshire and successfully applied for planning permission for an extension of their “Unit 4” with construction now underway.
Completion is expected in April 2020 and they will have an additional 5000sq. feet of warehousing space, as they continually ramp up stock due to a sustained demand for their range on a variety of national contracts. It will allow them to hold an additional 200 pallet spaces, totalling more than 20,000 pairs. However due to rapid expansion of the business, the senior management team are still looking for opportunities to acquire a much larger, purpose-built unit in the coming years.
Rock Fall supply some of the largest companies in the world via a network of authorised distribution partners ranging from small independent safety equipment distributors, FTSE 100 PLCs and multi-national organisations. Major distributors include household names like Bunzl, Travis Perkins, Toolstation, Amazon and Arco.
Speaking about the current order book the senior management team noted:
We’ve experienced industry leading growth for a number of years which has been very pleasing, it gives us great confidence to continue to invest in the business and our plans for the future are very exciting. Our system provider shares our ethos of thinking for the long term and have some unbelievable developments underway for robotics technology which could redefine our future order fulfilment processes.
