Only Natural Products gets a single supplier solution


As an independent British tea company, Only Natural Products is devoted to bringing brighter, bolder and better teas to the world. The company has been producing high quality herbal teas and infusions from a purpose-built facility in Gloucestershire since 2009.

To help them realise their vision they called on 4K Systems to fully fit out the warehouse facility. This included a wide range of tasks, such as the installation of racking, warehouse lighting, a mezzanine floor, office electrics, a kitchen, and security systems. The full-service solutions provider also supplied equipment such as forklifts, pallet trucks, shelving, lockers, plastic curtains, and office furniture to the new facility.

Gary Kenna, Director at Only Natural Products, said: “We employed 4K Systems and Dave Scammell to fit out our new £1.2m, 11,000 sq ft Production and distribution centre in Gloucester. Dave’s invaluable knowledge and the contacts he provided ensured that the work was carried out to an extremely high standard specification whilst working to the budgeted costs.”

Since then, Only Natural Products has seen heaps of success, and even won a prestigious Queen’s Award for international trade in April 2016. Off the back of this success, the business underwent a huge expansion, including almost doubling the size of its Gloucestershire factory to 21,000 sqft.

This is where 4K Systems stepped in again – this time to fully rack out their new warehouse, install a new executive office along with furniture, and expand the factory area with steel partitioning. The business also acquired two Aislemaster forklift trucks to replace their 4K-supplied Bendi trucks and help their operators move stock through the narrow aisles of the facility.

The latest 4K project has seen the installation of a clean room specification mezzanine floor in the warehouse to accommodate additional automated tea bag machines. The construction of the floor took only two weeks to complete and included the upgrade of the existing mezzanine to clean room specification.

Gary continued: “We will continue to work with Dave on all future projects and would highly recommend any company to employ Dave’s services as he was a valuable asset to us.”

4K Systems Managing Director, David Scammell is pleased to hear Only Natural Products are still happy with his service after many years of working together. “When a customer keeps coming back every time they need assistance with a new project, it goes to show the kind of service we deliver,” he says. “I am delighted that we have been able to provide Only Natural Products with a single supplier solution, it’s a situation we find ourselves in more and more recently and we always get great feedback. I hope our working relationship with Gary and his team will continue to flourish for many more years.”
