Lloyds Pharmacy is the UK’s leading community pharmacy. With a turnover of £1.8 billion and dispensing over 150 million prescription items, they have 440 GP-practice-based pharmacies.
We have built up an excellent relationship with Lloyds since 2010. Our stationery agreement involves delivering consolidated orders into the UK AAH warehouses but also direct to over 1,650 pharmacies within the UK, including 12 in Northern Ireland.
ACS were approached by Lloyds Pharmacy who requested our assistance in finding a stand solution for a suite of new customer-facing tablets, which were going to be based in all stores throughout the UK. They initially asked ACS to try and source an existing plastic moulded monitor stand which they thought was an ideal solution at the time. Simon Walsh our Operations Manager persevered in finding a manufacturer who was able to produce, from the beginning, a suitable monitor stand to match Lloyd’s complex specification.
Our Operations Manager communicated with two manufacturers in both Hong Kong and Shanghai respectively. Unfortunately, they were unable to provide a non-copyright equivalent of the stand which was already situated on an existing HP desktop monitor. As a result, Simon contacted a number of moulding companies to see if a similar frame could be fabricated. He made contact with Fabriweld a company in Derbyshire who were specialists in monitor and audio stands, they had an existing relationship with a hardware supplier we currently deal with. Fabriweld hand drew, before fabricating, a sample model which we invited Lloyds Pharmacy to come and view. During the visit we made minor changes to the stand build to ensure Lloyds were satisfied with the final product. On completion of the meeting with Lloyds and Fabriweld we then began negotiations with both Fabriweld and their distribution partner.
After gaining full approval and sign-off from the Lloyds senior management team, 2800 stands were ordered, and these were then delivered at the end of September 2018.
