Oakwood Distribution & PME Electricians

The long-established relationship between Oakwood Distribution and PME Warrington Electricians commenced in September 2008 when Handelmann UK won the contract to distribute and merchandise entertainment products (DVDs, CDs and computer games) from Oakwood's 3000 square foot warehousing facility in Bolton to Tesco stores across the country.

The initial work entailed a fibre backbone and data network cabling infrastructure installation throughout the office and the warehouse and Cat 5E network data cabling to wireless access points (WAPs) within the warehouse.

Idustrial electrical services and power works were undertaken as required including the install of a new tray wash and also a new distribution board to accommodate battery charge bays for the fork lift trucks.

Vastly experienced commercial and industrial electrical contractor...

As a vastly experienced commercial electricians and industrial electrical contractor PME electricians were able to advise Oakwood on a range of energy efficient lightingschemes, products and configurations with comparisons on costs, savings and payback times on the investment. The recommended, and chosen,warehouse lighting systemwas the optimal scheme for the operation. 

On a regular basis PME electrical engineers have continued to provide fixed andperiodic electrical testing, inspection, maintenance and any new power-related installations which are required by Oakwood.

Oakwood Distribution is now a subsidiary of Tesco Holdings plc and only services work for Tesco. The scope of activities has grown and diversified over a number of years into new sectors such as pharmaceutical products. Each level of expansion provides both new opportunities and challenges for the NICEIC accredited electricians from PME electricians to demonstrate their prowess at delivering warehousing electrical, power and data network installations.

Recently PME were commissioned, on the strength of our previous performance, to install the lighting, power and data network cabling infrastructure for a new mezzanine cube within the main warehouse. The new cube was constructed to service the Tesco Pharmacy on-line distribution service.

The mezzanine works required PME electricians Warrington electrical contractors to install a number of new wireless access points (WAPs), CAT 5E data network cabling points throughout the mezzanine and cabling from the main server to local boundary cabinets.

PME Electricians Highly Comended

PME electricians regularly review the performance of the systems within Oakwood, service, maintain and make changes as the business requires - invariably power for new machinery, machinery moves and implementing the electrical works for layout restructures.

Neil Briscoe, Technical Services Manager at Oakwood Distribution, added:

"PME have provided a design and build service for all of our electrical installation and data works over the past 5 years. I find the company professional and competitive with an ability to adapt to our demands".
