A reliable partner for more than 20 years
The Industore Limited success story
1972 saw the birth of Richard H. Powell and Partners Limited, the parent company of Industore Limited, a design practice specialising in interior architecture and conventional storage systems.
With the emergence of the computer age in the 1990s, the directors of the familyrun business recognised the potential of computer-based automated storage systems. This was the impetus for starting Industore and establishing an exclusive alliance with Hänel Office and Industrial Storage Systems, also a family-owned business sharing the same ethos and values.
On August 5 1996 Industore installed its first Hänel Rotomat® industrial lift system at BASS Brewery in Burton-upon-Trent.
High demand for storage systems
The demand for automated storage systems that enables control over inventory and saves both space and time, has been on the rise in Great Britain and Ireland, and similarly around the globe ever since. The specialists at Industore design architectural concepts and storage solutions for a portfolio of large brands. Industore offers customers a tailor-made service, including detailed evaluations of warehouse efficiency and return on investment.
Richard Powell’s son, Ross Powell, who has been with the company since 1999, having also witnessed the installation of the first Hänel Rotomat®, took over the role as Managing Director of Industore in 2014.
Apart from his role as Managing Director, Ross Powell has particular expertise in the deployment of software systems for warehouse logistics.
In January 2015 Gareth Knight, a Chartered Engineer, joined the management team as Operations Director.
Today the company employs 65 people and has a reputation in Great Britain and Ireland for innovation and expertise in the field of efficient intralogistics.
Efficient intralogistics and modern design – the new Demo Centre at Industore Limited
To mark the 20th anniversary of the company, Industore dedicated and opened the doors of its new ultra-modern Hänel Demo Centre in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, for the benefit of all British and Irish customers.
Two Hänel Lean-Lifts® and six Hänel Rotomat® office carousels are on display in the modern demo centre and can be operated for live presentations.
The systems are fully equipped and provide customers with insights about how Hänel systems can be specially configured to meet specific customer requirements.
Industore specialists can also demonstrate innovative and future-proof control technologies, alongside various types of data communication channels at the site.
Over the twenty years Industore has planned and installed 1,500 Hänel storage solutions in Great Britain and Ireland.
