Leicester firm LB Foster Materials Handling has been selected by schoolwear specialist David Luke, to design, manufacture and install a hanging garment system for 140,000 Eco Blazers.

The six-tier solution with integral walkways maximises the 10,000 sq. ft. of space in David Luke’s new warehouse located in Manchester.

“Our unique blazers feature an outside fabric which is created entirely from recycled plastic bottles, it takes just 16 bottles to make one blazer," says Mark Woolgar, operations manager for David Luke.

"Sales of these Eco Blazers exploded in the last six months, which meant we urgently needed more storage for this particular line.”
