Torque, the end-to-end logistics service provider, has invested £1m in a new fashion processing centre at its Wortley warehouse in Leeds.
The new facility is claimed to be one of the largest in the UK, spanning approximately 50,000sq ft.
According to Torque, the new centre covers all aspects of processing including a conveyer for unloading and loading to reduce handling, boxed to hang, quality control, steam tunnelling, extensive pressing facilities and bagging. In addition to these services, Torque has the facility to provide ozone treatment capable of destroying mould spores and other unwanted contaminants.
Neil Hewitt, processing manager, Torque, said: “The very nature of fast moving fashion means retailers are under constant pressure to meet the evolving and ever increasing demands of consumers, especially in the current and very challenging economic climate.
“The carefully tailored processes we apply give a renewed source of vitality to a well-travelled and often cramped product, bringing the appearance back to fresh, pristine and instantly saleable clothing. Whether customers opt for tunnelling, pressing or another one of our value added services, a sold garment far outweighs the end costs and ultimately makes a difference to the bottom line.”
