The customised racking has been designed to accommodate 2m long double pallets, which will house multipoint door locks in over 250 locations plus tilt and turn hardware in over 140 Euro pallet locations.

Carl F Groupco says it is also committed to a further £1m investment for stock provision as part of its Brexit strategy to maintain its high service levels and on time in full delivery commitment.

The hardware distributor offers an expanding catalogue of over 7,000 hardware lines including its own-brand SmartSecure electronic locking solutions.
