Case Study


The Client

Fish4Pets is an international petfood company based in Worcestershire, with subsidiaries in Benelux, Norway and the USA.

With global sourcing, manufacture, production, sales and export experience, and a growing UK and international sales and distribution network covering 34 countries, the company’s passion is for the health and wellbeing of dogs and cats.

The Challenge

While achieving remarkable success and growth, the company had personal experience of damaged warehouse racking and the potential risks associated with it, and so wished to future proof operations and remove the risk of racking failure.

Fish4Pets also needed to maintain business operations during installation so required a flexible and safe solution capable of being installed around their employees and business needs.

The Ideal Solution

Rack Collapse Prevention undertook an initial and comprehensive site audit and inspection before providing a detailed report covering the business and health and safety benefits.

Business benefits encompassed damage limitation, savings in stock write-off and potential stock loss in the event of a racking accident. The report also outlined the supplementary health and safety benefits.

The Result

Rack Collapse Prevention’s racking safety system was installed into Fish4Pets 60,000sqft warehouse in less than two-weeks.

Accommodating the needs of the business, parts of the safety system installation was undertaken outside of normal business hours.

Fish4Pets now have the confidence and knowledge that the risk of racking collapse has been removed and that their staff are now operating in a protected and safe working environment.
