UK-based manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, TouchStar Technologies, is pleased to announce that Primeur, the UK’s largest supplier of doormats and soft furnishings, has selected TouchStar’s TS8000 handheld mobile computers. The hardware implementation will support the goods in and picking operations at Primeur’s Head Office in Bingley to provide real time stock visibility and control.

Innovation and product development have been key to Primeur’s business success and remains at the heart of what they do today. In 2019 they celebrated the milestone of 50 years in business. In this time, they have worked with many of the UK's retail groups and independents, supplying garden ranges and doormats.  

With over 50,000 sq. ft of warehousing within their head office in Bingley, West Yorkshire, Primeur pride themselves on ensuring 100% stock availability and the flexibility to react quickly to increases in demand. TouchStar’s TS8000 handheld has been selected as part of a hardware upgrade which is set to support real time data capture in the operation. The advanced scanning capability of the TS8000 will help identify each unique product within the warehouse, providing accurate stock information and visibility that will help support an efficient and flexible operation.  

The TS8000 provides the ideal hardware solution for Primeur’s warehouse-based applications. The combination of high impact polycarbonate plastics, metal alloy chassis and the use of Sorbothane® rubber shock absorbers allow for an extremely reliable solution and prolonged life within robust environments.   

TouchStar’s Bradford based rugged mobile computing division worked in partnership with Primeur throughout the testing period, helping setup and configure the proposed devices. The localised support was a key factor in the decision to select TouchStar. Tommy O’Hara, Warehouse Manager explains, “TouchStar were extremely supportive throughout the testing period, not only are the device’s fit for purpose, we feel confident that in TouchStar, we have invested in a stable and reliable partner that will provide support and real benefits to our operation”.   

Peter Marsh, Sales Director for TouchStar comments, “With over three decades of experience within the development of mobile computers for warehouse environments, we were thrilled to have the opportunity of working with Primeur, a fellow local company. We feel that that in the TS8000, we will be delivering a fit for purpose device that will deliver real operational benefits.  We look forward to supporting another successful hardware upgrade with Primeur”.
