Advanced Handling improve efficiencies for Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchants by designing, building and installing a unique, custom-built lift system30-Oct-2017 ADVANCED HANDLING LTD
Berry Bros. & Rudd is Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, having traded from 3 St James’s Street in London since 1698.
The challenges of nurturing a modern, thriving business in the beautiful but restrictive confines of the original listed building left Berry Bros. & Rudd in a dilemma. The lift that was used to transfer deliveries from street level to the cellars below, was problematic and unreliable. The effect of the continuous breakdowns in terms of cost, time and safety meant that they needed to find a replacement as soon as possible. Berry Bros. & Rudd tried several different avenues to solve the issues but were left frustrated with the responses. Other suppliers were unable to offer standard lifts that could be adapted to integrate into the environment. Those that were able to supply bespoke equipment were reluctant to do so due to the intricacies and restrictions of the space and the legislative limitations of working in a listed building.
Advanced Handling are specialists in the design and manufacture of unusual requirements and bespoke lifting solutions so these difficulties were neither daunting nor surprising to their experienced and knowledgeable design team.
