Bis Henderson’s Space and Consultancy businesses brought together as Visku
Supply chain consulting and warehousing solutions specialist, Bis Henderson, has brought together the strengths of its Consultancy and Space businesses under a single new identity - Visku - leveraging the expertise and network capabilities of the two previously independent businesses.
Consulting is well known for its market leading cost-to-serve analysis, benchmarking, strategic design and operational efficiency solutions.
Space has established a unique proposition in the warehousing market, leveraging its practical operational expertise and market position to build an extensive network of nationwide partners to deliver short term warehouse space as well as expert, tailored solutions.
According to the company, bringing the two businesses together as a single, integrated business with shared goals and objectives, “opens the door to a whole new world for customers”.
“We already hold a wealth of expertise in our supply chain consultancy, and we have the know-how and market position in the warehouse space sector to build supply chain networks with the flexibility and resilience that businesses are looking for,” said Andy Kaye, CEO of Visku.
“Now, as Visku, we will be in a position to leverage our combined strengths to offer our clients both agile long-term strategic solutions, based on sound cost-to-serve analysis and intelligent consulting, as well as highly responsive, strategic and short-term warehousing options.”
Visku is a £70m revenue business with 400+ projects delivered and 500k+ pallets currently under management. It supports six 6 out of 10 top UK grocers, 200+ customers, with 80% of customers returning for additional projects.
“Businesses now face continual challenges and constant change,” continues Kaye. “The only effective mitigation against such uncertainty is business agility, facilitated by a ‘super flexible’ supply chain. But creating a strategic solution that is highly flexible demands imaginative supply chain thinking and deep, practical expertise. Visku delivers on this vision.”
The third element of the Bis Henderson Group, Bis Henderson Recruitment, will continue to operate under its existing, well-respected and long-established name and will now become an independent company. The Bis Henderson Group name will no longer be used.
