Plumbing supplies importer and distributor QPH Industries has selected Crown Warehouse Solution racking over its incumbent supplier to fit out its new facility.

The Victorian-based company's new warehouse facility
in the suburb of Sunshine West houses 1,600 selective pallet racking positions to cater for
increased stock holdings of its range of plumbing products, bathroom fittings and kitchen appliances.


An existing Crown Equipment customer, QPH
had been
unaware the forklift manufacturer and supplier had recently added a racking division to its material handling product set.

QPH General Manager Tim Wood says when the company’s Crown representative outlined the capabilities of Crown's Warehouse Solutions division he immediately saw an opportunity to consolidate his suppliers.

"We had always been impressed with the Crown vehicles we use, and had a strong relationship with our Crown representative," Wood says.

"So if Crown could match or beat the price and quality of our existing racking supplier, then it would make good sense to go with them."


Wood says Crown ticked all the right boxes for QPH in terms of product and price, but the biggest advantage was the finance package.

"It is a one-stop-shop solution, with everything coming from the one company," Wood says.


From the initial discussions, to the tender process and all the way through to final installation, Wood says everything was handled professionally.

"I was particularly impressed with the tradespeople doing the installation," he says.

"They were easy to work with and completed the job right on schedule."
