Retail - Supermarket Checkout Case Study


Delivery of fully painted kiosks


Background

A fast growing, leading UK-based installer and re-furbisher of retail check-outs for national retailers. The customers check-outs are installed throughout the UK, as well as in the Czech Republic and Ireland.

Customer Brief

Requires a dedicated manufacturing partner for all check-outs and new client prototypes. Requires units to be delivered fully painted in very short turnaround times so that our customer is able to build and install on-site with minimal disruption.


CEL Solution

CEL frequently supports prototyping of new designs and changes, and manufactures 50 full checkouts a month. We regularly save capacity so that our customer is able to meet quick turnarounds required by its end customers. In one example, we manufactured a number of prototype designs of a kiosk unit over a period of several weeks, and then moved to full production of over 300 units within one month.

Materials used

Mild steel, stainless steel, various studs and inserts, piano hinge and powder coating.
