The Hall & Woodhouse brewery has been producing beer since 1777, when an enterprising Charles Hall started brewing beer for the troops stationed in Weymouth as they waited to face Napoleon. He was soon to realise that, for the troops, beer was very popular and trade was brisk.
Over the years, the brewer continued to innovate and expand, and today the Hall & Woodhouse pub estate has grown to over 200 pub-restaurants, stretching from Bristol to Exeter, and London to Brighton.
Owned and run by the seventh generation of the Woodhouse family, Hall & Woodhouse is proud to be a leading independent regional brewer.
B&B Attachments are the leading supplier of forklift attachments and exclusive distributor of KAUP equipment. To ensure productivity levels are met and to support Hall and Woodhouse’s Keg and Cask line operations, B&B have worked together with Locators – the forklift and storage system specialists to provide the brewer with keg clamp forklift attachments.
The Keg Clamp attachments supplied from B&B Attachments were fitted to Still RX-2020 forklift trucks, enabling a secure grip of kegs and casks, and providing ease of movement of both full and empty barrels around the yard and production facility. The Keg Clamp attachment allows for up to 18 barrels to be handled in a single lift. It provides the driver with excellent visibility when approaching the load, whilst also increasing driver confidence and ensuring safe and secure handling on site.
It is the ultimate solution for improving product handling. The standard features of the Keg Clamp include low profile stabilisers with long lasting rubber pad, wear indicators on tines, solenoid valve and end of stroke cushioning on side shift movement.
Mark Davis, Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse commented “We are delighted with the attachments provided and the dedicated service provided by both B&B Attachments and Locators. The attachments have saved significant time in many areas of the process of moving both full and empty barrels around site. These attachments are used every day and are now an integral part of our operation.”
