Customer: Electrical Wholesaler

Location: Northern VIC

Industry: Electrical Supplies


An electrical wholesaler in Northern Victoria plays a pivotal role in supporting local electricians, contractors, and businesses by offering a wide array of essential electrical products and services. They ensure consistent availability of items like wiring, lighting fixtures, circuit breakers, and power tools, crucial for the completion of residential, commercial, and agricultural projects in a region where access to specialised supplies can be limited. Through a robust inventory, expert advice, tailored solutions, reliable delivery services, and competitive pricing, this wholesaler not only supports the local economy but also enhances infrastructure development across Northern Victoria.

Storeplan was enlisted to assist the wholesaler's expansion by designing the commercial storage space in their new branch. With a focus on maximising space utilisation and workflow efficiency, Storeplan's storage solutions expertise was instrumental. They tailored a layout that seamlessly accommodated the extensive inventory of electrical products while ensuring ease of access and organisation. This collaboration equipped the new branch to meet growing business demands, setting the stage for sustained growth and operational success.

The Challenge:

From initial discussions, it was clear that timing was the highest priority for the new store fit-out. The project needed to be completed within three weeks after receiving the keys to the new site. The facility required both a functional warehouse and a well-presented showroom.

Storeplan managed the project efficiently, completing it within seventeen days. This included conducting a comprehensive site measure-up, confirming the design layout, and arranging stock. The installation culminated in the implementation of six different storage solutions, ensuring the new branch was fully operational and optimally organised in record time.

The Solution:

Cable Racking:

  • 4250H system with 3 levels of cable reel storage per bay and an additional storage level above the cable reels for pallets.

Selective Pallet Racking:

  • 4250H standard pallet racking set up with three beam levels per bay to allow the storage of 8 pallets per bay.
  • Mesh backing was used along the entire run of this racking to prevent stock falling off pallets onto employees picking products off the longspan shelving that is situated the pallet racking.
  • Accessories such as rack end protectors were also included to provide protection from forklift damage and affecting the integrity of the racking.
  • This system was built using pallet racking components & accessories to vertically store conduit and in separate compartments for easy picking and neat, efficient storage.

Longpan Shelving:

  • A total of 18 bays 2400H was set up with 4 shelf levels throughout.
  • Mesh backing system was also included between the double-sided run to prevent items falling down between the bays.

Longspan Workbench:

  • 1 x Mobile LS600 Workbench 900/1500H x 2000L x 900D.
  • 32mm MDF top + adjustable lower shelf. Louvre panel backing system with assortment of tubs.

Gondola Shelving:

  • White Gondola Units were used for a showroom display shelving system.
  • Set up with 2100H units on the walls and 1500H d/sided units in the centre of the room.
  • Powder-coated white throughout & Heavy duty pegboard backing system on all bays.

The Result:

The project resulted in a professional showroom space to showcase the company’s products and a warehouse storage solution that maximised the limited space available. Both areas were tailored to suit the specific product storage requirements of the electrical wholesaler, ensuring optimal organisation and accessibility.

This comprehensive fit-out provided the company with an efficient and well-presented new branch, perfectly aligned with their operational needs and enhancing their capacity to serve customers effectively.
