Asda Rochdale PPM

Client:ASDA
Location:Rochdale
Sector:Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution
Service:Project Management

Asda’s distribution centre in Rochdale works with its local Star Refrigeration branch in Manchester to maintain its refrigeration plant in the most efficient way possible. Star Refrigeration has a national maintenance contract with ASDA, working in partnership with the customer to provide a preventative maintenance plan and ensure any faults are dealt with promptly and safely when these unexpectedly occur. At this particular site, palletised goods are broken down and delivered to individual stores, and the temperature needs to be controlled and maintained throughout the operation.

The client requires 24/7 cover of its refrigeration plant including remote monitoring and planned preventative maintenance (PPM) visits. Star keeps the plant safe and legal, with services including Written Schemes of Examination, calibration of the ammonia detection system and other sub contract works managed by Star. Working alongside Star the retailer has strict contingency planning procedures in place to ensure a rapid response in the event of a mechanical failure, supported by a qualified team of engineers from Star’s local branch. Generally, major faults are uncommon in large, complex industrial plants which are regularly serviced and maintained. However, end users need to be well prepared in advance, should the unthinkable happen, to minimise and, where possible, avoid any losses.

The measure of the success of a partnership lies in two things; effectiveness and endurance. Great partners stick in the memory because they made the grade over a sustained period. Lennon and McCartney, Morecambe and Wise, or Torvill and Dean wouldn’t have marked our lives as they did if their success had been only a quick burst of brilliance – limited to their allotted 15 minutes of fame. Away from the high profile entertainment world the same measures apply. It is against this yardstick that the relationship between Yearsley Group and Star Refrigeration can best be measured.

Asda Bedford

Client:ASDA
Location:Bedford
Sector:Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution
Service:Installation

The historic town of Bedford lies in the heart of the English countryside, on the banks of the Great Ouse, and close to the M1 as it runs north from London. Close to the motorway and roughly half way between London and Birmingham, this was the ideal location for ASDA’s latest addition to their national chain of Chilled Distribution Centres (CDCs). Under Gazeley Properties, the property development arm of ASDA, a new construction methodology has been developed which can provide a functional ambient distribution centre within 16 weeks of cutting the first sod on a green field site. Of course cold stores take a little longer, but the programmes achieved on Bedford and its predecessors at Washington and Wakefield are no less impressive. Wakefield was up and running within 28 weeks of the site start, and Bedford, which is 50% larger has just beaten that record.
