Exciting times for the DIY and building material store Wickes who are opening a new outlet at the Elstree Trading Park on the 11th December. Busy preparation of all the units, displays and racking is underway to house the many products for this flagship store.
One supplier to Wickes is the timber company SCA. The company has its base at Stoke-on -Trent in the Midlands, UK and is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of wood-based products, with an annual production of 2.1 million cubic metres. The product range is supplemented with service and distribution solutions for customers in the wood industry and builders’ merchant sector.
Alternative Images, corporate photographer in London was asked to cover the task of delivery and the unloading of the material by SCA to the Wickes store for their PR department, who is producing an editorial piece for the company. A team from SCA have been on hand for a period of time to erect the specifically designed racking that houses the wood products. Once the lorry had delivered and the load was fork lifted to the correct areas within the store the team began the busy task of organising and placing the wood to the correct locations.
The task is expected to take a few days with the various wood deliveries. SCA is delivering long length planed timber such as skirting boards, door frames and with the large variety of sheet products such as block board, wood chip and ply should all be ready for the opening day on the 11th where Alternative again is going to be on hand to record the final result.
