James Burrell selects Polypal for new branch in Sunderland

Polypal’s ability to provide an extensive range of display, storage and shelving systems is said to be optimising versatility and maximising available space for a major new builders’ merchant outlet in Sunderland. The facility, at the latest James Burrell premises – the eighth in the company’s network – combines installations in two warehouses and an adjacent yard with a purpose-designed, highly flexible trade counter.

“The range of products James Burrell offers and the importance of being able to adapt the facility to meet changing needs have underpinned our design,” said Ian Craig, Business Development Manager at Polypal. “Because we are able to supply such a wide range of display and storage systems, we could ensure that there was an efficient link between the various elements at the site and a logical layout to optimise the customer experience.”

The two warehouses and yard area feature a combination of pallet, A-frame and cantilever racking which enables products ranging from fittings and building supplies to large sections of timber and facia to be stored and accessed. Importantly, the layout allows free movement of a Combilift sideloader throughout.


Ian added: “The trade counter combines perimeter shelving, including longspan, with a series of gondola units each offering four display bays and two end units. It was important that we also made the most of the wall spaces in order to optimise display volumes while, at the same time, allowing an area for supplier storage and display facilities to be featured.”

Polypal says its solution meets all of these needs and can be readily adapted by James Burrell should seasonal or merchandising needs dictate.

Ian concluded: “James Burrell is a well-established, highly successful builders’ merchant organisation covering the North East of England and Yorkshire, and the opening now of the new Sunderland depot pays testimony to its success. We believe our involvement at the site reflects our own ability to provide tailored solutions and to design and install display, storage and shelving installations that meet customers’ requirements of all sizes.”
