18501Warehousing and logistics experts InBond have launched a hi-tech service to enhance support for blue-chip clients taking its investment in the last 12 months to £150,000.

The company, which has been established on Teesside for more than 20 years, moved to Malleable Way, on the Northshore development in Stockton last June.

Its latest investment is a Scan on Demand system, which allows clients to access documents speedily and securely. It involves the scanning of and digital transfer of files and documents, stored at InBond, to clients.

Craig Rye, Finance Director at InBond, which employs 40, said: “InBond invests significant resources and capital investment in ensuring it maintains its position at the forefront of the warehousing and logistics industry.

“We have recognised the need to offer digital solutions in today’s fast-paced, green-focused business environment, in particular to support our blue-chip clients.”

Mr Rye added: “The introduction of a Scan on Demand service is an important extension to InBond’s Document Management division, which has achieved a turnover increase in excess of 33 percent this year with further growth forecast for 2016.

“We have taken on five extra staff in the last year and this expansion of our services has the potential to lead to further job creation at the company.”

The investment follows InBond spending considerable time collaborating with industry specialists to ensure it offers a service that meets the exacting and varying requirements of its customers.

The whole process delivers robust security including staff who have been vetted, file encryption and secure file transfer protocols.

The launch of the new service enhances InBond’s current service provision and provides a cost-effective, secure, digital, and environmentally-friendly solution.

InBond’s clients include Tata Global Beverages, Next Retail, and the NHS. Other recent investments include Articulated Flexi Trucks, new Forklift Trucks and   additional  racking to cope with the increasing revenue growth.
