Unipart building success on RESPOL’s floors

May 2005

Unipart has chosen RESPOL flooring as its partner at its 1m sq ft distribution centre at Oxford. Unipart is one of the UK’s largest privately owned companies and has been winning logistics contracts with major brands like Boots, Halfords, Homebase and Vodafone.

Respol have worked with Unipart over a number of years as preferred contractor, supplying systems encompassing fast track installation to provide hardwearing surfaces to withstand heavy machine traffic, resistance to oil and other chemical spills, anti-slip and easy to clean ­ a comprehensive range of flooring systems that meet and exceed the most stringent regulations.

This year saw Respol’s contracts for Unipart exceed £1 million, equating to, in excess of 25,000 square metres of flooring. All contracts were for either resin flooring or resin bonded P2000 pumped polymer ­ a new system introduced during the last twelve months to meet customer demand.

Recently completed projects at Unipart’s National Distribution Centre at their Oxford headquarters worth £600,000, were started in September 2003. A variety of systems have been installed to suit site applications ­ 24,000 square metres of pumped Reepol P2000, 26,000 square metres of high build coating Reecote EC017 and 5,000 square metres of 2mm flexible screed.

Richard Bristow, DCM Facilities Maintenance and Engineering Manager commented, “Respol have always provided a high quality flooring service, accommodating our business requirements and working hours. Their staff are very accommodating from director level to floor layer and have on many occasions worked outside of their contractual requirements to assist us. The company provide a very professional service, in a timely manner meeting all our expectations”.

Winner of the prestigious FERFA ‘Contractor of the Year Award’ 2004, RESPOL’s services and systems are accredited to ISO9001:2008 which is testament to their commitment to quality standards and peace of mind for their customers.

A flexible, single source supplier of flooring systems, designed to perform to the highest standards, providing years of cost-effective service in the most demanding environments.

All work carried out by Respol is guaranteed by a single source warranty, covering not only workmanship but also material, whether developed by an outside manufacturer or by Respol’s own plant. Coupled with the company’s ability to develop problem-solving solutions to customer’s requirements, it becomes easy to understand why 80% of Respol’s orders come from repeat business.
