SCA is a leader in the development, production and marketing of personal care and tissue products. It’s the largest supplier of consumer tissue in Europe and is one of the world’s largest players in personal care products.
One of its largest mills is in Prudhoe (UK) and produces SCA’s brands: Velvet, Cushelle and Tork. This plant has streamlined production and warehousing with the introduction of a fully automated storage warehouse in 2006 eliminating inefficiencies and double handling of stocks. Having made a significant investment in automation and efficiency, SCA chose in 2010 FHG IPP Logipal as its pallet rental provider to supply high quality pallets in large volumes into the plant and for onward handling of its brands downstream to SCA’s demanding retail partners.
FHG IPP Logipal was chosen as a pallet rental partner for its quality service, and its flexible approach to working together including a ‘can do’ attitude to creating value.
