PCIAW | PCIAW News | Rock Fall extending premises

Second-generation family-owned safety boot manufacturer Rock Fall has successfully applied for planning permission for an extension of their Unit 4 – with construction now underway. Completion is expected in April 2020 and will result in the brand achieving an additional 5000sq ft of warehouse space.

Operating in Alfreton, Derbyshire, the extension will allow Rock Fall to hold additional pallet spaces, totalling more than 20,000 pairs – due to sustained demand for their range on a variety of national contracts.

However, the senior management team are still looking for opportunities to acquire a much larger, purpose-built space in the coming years, due to rapid expansion of the business.

Speaking about the current order book, the senior management team commented, “We’ve experienced industry-leading growth for a number of years which has been very pleasing, it gives us great confidence to continue to invest in the business and our plans for the future are very exciting. Our system provider shares our ethos of thinking for the long term and have some unbelievable developments underway for robotics technology which could redefine our future order fulfilment processes.”

Rock Fall is known to supply some of the largest companies in the world via a network of authorised distribution partners – ranging from small independent safety equipment distributors, FTSE 100 PLCs and multi-national organisations. Some major distributors include household names such as Bunzl, Travis Perkins, Toolstation, Amazon and Arco.
