Large retailer in urgent need of cage repairs at 3 sites

Food Retailer

A food retailer had been struggling with some poor quality repairs from another provider over a prolonged two year period which had created a crisis situation.


Distribution Maintenance were called in during July 2016 to resolve the longstanding repair issue that the client had with another repairer. The much needed repairs at three client sites across the UK were carried out quickly within a matter of days. 

Each of the client sites had more than 500 damaged and neglected cages. The operation was in a dangerous situation in urgent need of quick action as there were barely enough cages for the client to carry on trading.


Distribution Maintenance responded quickly to rescue the situation and sent its UK vans to each of the client sites and restored the cages to an excellent standard so they could be put back into the system on the same day as the repair, saving a cage shortage crisis from unfolding.
