Ramps Aid Supply To Textile Recycle Bank

Loading and unloading specialist,Thorworld Industries, has designed and manufactured two bespoke mobile yardramps to recycling expert BCR Global Textiles. The ramps are designed to help manoeuvre the increasing number of clothing containers currently being processed by the organisation.

Based on the proven design of Thorworld’s 10,000 kg capacity Type 7 ramp, the bespoke models have been specifically designed for lateral movement with the inclusion of telescopic legs.

This makes them an ideal solution for BCR Global, which required additional ramp loading apparatus to service an increase in volume, but for whom space presents an issue at their West Bromwich facility.

Thorworld’s 10,000 kg capacity Type 7 ramp    BCR Global collates and recycles unwanted but wearable clothes, shoes and fabrics, in order that they might be used abroad - providing clothing to those without the means or access to acquire new.

Thorworld Industries was asked to suggest an appropriate loading and unloading solution for BCR’s West Bromwich facility, which does not contain a permanent loading bay.

John Meale, Managing Director of Thorworld explains: “Space is at a premium for BCR, so ramp manoeuvrability and storage are both key to the organisation’s loading needs. By assessing the company’s requirements we could see that a traditional yard ramp, which can only be towed forwards and backwards would be difficult to store, and therefore inappropriate - so we recommended the inclusion of lateral ramp equipment within their operation.

“This type of loading apparatus, with its telescopic legs, allows the ramp to be lowered, then pushed or pulled to the side and stowed away, making it ideal for BCR.”

Commenting further with regard to the new equipment Jason Mowatt, Transport Manager at BCR Global said: “Our business is constantly growing, requiring a fast and efficient level of operation at our end. As such, our previous loading function, of using a rented ramp with limited mobility became inappropriate, and a new method that would better accommodate our changing volume and associated pace was needed.”

Jason continues: “We’re delighted with the decision to work with Thorworld, as the ramps are great and ideal for the job. The lateral wheels make them very easy to use, and it takes no more than five minutes to take the ramp from the wall, set it up and simply start unloading. Brilliant.”
