Material handling, automation and maintenance firm AMH Material Handling has been awarded another three-year contract for the maintenance of all material handling machinery at Asda’s George clothing warehouses.
On-site maintenance engineers will be stationed at four UK sites providing total asset management maintenance programmes, which are designed to deliver 24-hour support, 365 days a year. This includes preventative maintenance protection with AMH’s engineers looking after a combination of its own installations and other OEMs’ equipment installed at the sites.
The site-based maintenance contract review process took a total of six months for the Asda Logistics Services team to complete. It resulted in the renewal of an existing contract with AMH Material Handling. AMH added it was successfully awarded the contract after demonstrating its existing and future value; its proven track record of health and safety and legislative compliance, and its performance in continually exceeding service-level agreements.
Jon Parry, vice president, Asda Logistics Services, said: “The AMH Material Handling team has been engaged with Asda since 2008, and has over 60 years of combined senior management experience.
“AMH Material Handling work as an extension of our team; their people are embedded and aligned with Asda’s way of working. They support us strategically, from concept and design through to delivery, whether in ‘business as usual’ or project integration.
“Working collaboratively with our partners this way gives both parties excellent opportunities to strengthen commercial relationships in and around Asda Logistics Services. In turn, this supports technological and commercial growth and diversity in the business.”
AMH will also work with Asda on a number of engineering projects including autonomous mobile robot installation in Asda’s parcel sortation centre.
