Who is DS Smith?
DS Smith Packaging, part of DS Smith Plc, is an international supplier of recycled packaging for consumer goods with a turnover of £2 billion and a workforce of over 22,000 people. Efficient material handling operations are on the top of their agenda.
With the purchase of a new production line at their facility in Belper, Derbyshire, DS Smith created the need for further manual handling equipment to ensure they maintained their high levels of health and safety and productivity.
After consultations with DS Smith, Advanced Handling manufactured and supplied two bespoke Static Scissor Lifts both fitted with an ‘auto-levelling adjustment’ feature and protective bellow skirt.
The cumulative effects of employees not bending and reaching too far and tiring very quickly made a sizeable improvement in efficiency. The health and safety concerns of the company were successfully addressed and employees appreciated the improvement in their working practices.
With an established relationship with Advanced Handling, DS Smith owns and operate a number of high Standard Scissor Lifts at their warehouse centres across the UK.
