PALLITE®, the manufacturer and retailer of award-winning paper honeycomb pallets, pallet boxes and layer pads, has announced the product diversification and launch of their new warehouse storage solution range – PALLITE® PIX. PALLITE® PIX is a range of

lightweight, flexible and robust storage and shelving systems made from 100% recyclable paper honeycomb deck, that are designed to consolidate pick-faces. By creating free space firms can

store more product and ultimately increase the yield of their warehouse while maintaining the ability to flex around the demands of their supply chain. The range is available in standard

and bespoke sizes to fit all types of warehousing and racking.

Before Each honeycomb shelf has a

smooth edge applied for labelling to allow for items to be easily identified to improve pick accuracy. The range is strong enough to hold up to 500kg per unit and


remains lightweight to protect teams from manual handling injuries. The units can be built and

dismantled with ease without tools or screws and be stored flat-

packed to help keep warehouse layouts flexible. “Consumer demands are ever-

changing and supply chains are always under pressure to squeeze the asset against headwinds. “With shifts in sales density and

store sizes changing, labour and fuel inflation, as well as more dynamic consumers, it’s more important than ever to focus on creating space and improving productivity,” adds PALLITE® CEO, Iain Hulmes. “It’s hard to commit to a fixed

solution when your space requirements can change so quickly. The PALLITE® PIX range offers a solution that allows you to be flexible, save space, and become more efficient in the process.”



More than a dozen candidates have completed the ILM Management Development Programme with Northamptonshire Chamber. The comprehensive programme


Wellingborough has been home to a prison since 1963. In June 2018 the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) announced that Wellingborough would be rebuilt as a Category C Resettlement prison, contracted to the private sector. The regeneration of Wellingborough prison is an exciting venture for

both the MoJ and their chosen contractor. Once built the prison will accommodate 1,680 convicted male residents, in an environment fitting with the culture and ethos of rehabilitation and resettlement. Serco operational solutions lead Sarah Tiffin said: “Wellingborough

prison will have a large workshop capacity, which will provide significant business opportunities. For instance, Halfords, Timpson and Greggs have worked in prisons successfully for many years and view prison workshops as key to their business model, with Timpson currently employing 1,200 ex-offenders across the country. “Businesses could benefit from purpose-built workshops at reduced

rates, with the opportunity to source, train and tailor a guaranteed on site work force. We are very interested in working with local businesses and charities as prison residents will be taking part in many activities that will enhance their skills to get them ready for their future release. “Here at Serco we are busy putting together our bid submission,

which will remain true to our core values of; Trust, Care, Innovation and Pride. We look forward to working closely with the whole Wellingborough community, should we be chosen to operate the new Wellingborough prison.”
