Independent metal and plastics stockholder, Righton Blackburns have recently relocated their Bedford Service Centre, with a new warehouse and office established in Wixams, just south of Bedford town centre.
The new Bedford Service Centre has been designed to support their aim of being the first-choice supplier for all local Metal and Plastics demand, through sustainable and effective supply and a premium customer service and culture.
Crucially, the new building has been built as part of Righton & Blackburns, “Supply for a Sustainable Tomorrow” initiative. The new building has therefore been built with a range of environmentally-friendly considerations designed to improve both operational efficiency and sustainability throughout. These include:
- Solar Panels to reduce carbon footprint.
- LED lighting throughout the building to reduce energy usage.
- Electric Charge points for all visiting customers and employees.
Rafey Rasheed, Bedford Service Centre Manager said:
“We’re thrilled to finally have the new Bedford Service Centre up and running.
As a company, we are focused on changing the cultural mindset towards one of following environmental needs and keeping our vision in the future. The new Bedford building was therefore designed to keep efficiency and sustainability at the forefront.
Remaining in Bedfordshire was vital to ensure we retain the same customer service team to service all our valued customers.
We hope all the changes made for Bedford Service Centre creates a motivated and ethically conscious team, driving towards a more sustainable future for Bedford and the environment, while ensuring our customers’ needs are always at the forefront of our focus.”
In addition to the sustainable efforts, our new 19,000 sq. ft. facility offers increased storage capabilities and improved efficiencies in our processing, ensuring quicker lead times and improved customer service.
With our increased processing capabilities, we can offer benefits to our customers in multiple metal and plastics processing, guillotining, coating, bar cutting and more.
The convenient location in the town of Wixams allows for stronger transport and delivery links throughout the South East, with greater run efficiencies, for improved customer service and a smaller environmental impact.
