At CAEM we understand that racking and shelving is a huge investment for retailers and logistics businesses. We also understand that to continue to grow, retailers face continual changes in consumer behaviour that push them to improve onsite merchandising, refurbish stores and in some cases even relocate.
Though it’s important not to ‘cut corners’ we believe in reducing the cost burden where we can, and that’s why we introduced our renovation services. This service integrates with our warehousing and storage facilities to ensure that your shelving is in top condition when you need it.
One of our customers, a major UK retailer saved over £500,000 in 2019 by using our recycling and renovations services and not simply purchasing new shelving.
RECYCLE YOUR SHELVING:
CAEM is one of the UK leaders in the recycling and renovation of shelving. We have worked closely in the development of our processes, ensuring it is both effective and transparent. You know that when we deliver your legacy shelving to a new project that it remains in a serviceable condition ready for installation.
CAEM has a structured approach to shelf renovation which is done in house using the latest stock control and manufacturing systems.
SECOND HAND SHELVING IS RETURNED TO US
Shelving is dismantled and returned to our manufacturing facility in Staffordshire.
CAEM’s goods in team triage your shelving before a decision is made on its condition. Components that are not deemed suitable for future use are quarantined and we then we gain your approval prior to arranging recycling.
Any shelving and components that are still in acceptable condition are stored in our state of the art storage facility. Any that need re-finishing are sent to our in-house repair centre, which includes a powder coating facility.
RENOVATION AND COLOUR CHANGES
Our experienced powder coating team understands the technical specification of the shelving components and ensures the precise powder thickness so the modularity and installation of recycled components are guaranteed.
Having this in house powder coating facility means that not only can items be renovated, but at this point colour changes can be undertaken.
When shelving is renovated it is quality checked before it is either stored or dispatched.
SHELVING IS RETURNED TO THE CLIENT
When the client needs a specific order our tailored stock control systems know where your stocks are within our warehouses and at what levels. We ensure that this stock is available quickly, when you need it.
When we receive the order, stock is first checked and put on pallets before being sent directly out to the fitters on site.
THE PERFECT SOLUTION
Whether the shelving needs renovating, or you are looking for a complete change of colour CAEM can handle it. Thanks to our in house powder coating system, we can renovate the fixtures without added transport or logistical costs. We control the entire process internally, and this is a guarantee of quality and cost effectiveness.
The capability of changing the fixture colour provides a huge advantage if the retailer wants to create a new colour scheme. Typically this would mean purchasing new shelving, but not with CAEM, you can use the same shelving, which can be powder coated in a new colour then integrated with new displays developed especially for you.
