Salvatori Group

Case study

Salvatori have recently announced that Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, has awarded them the network’s highest accolade, The Platinum Club Award 2016. Salvatori have also invested in £1.5 million worth of new vehicles on the road.

The Customer

For over 80 years the Salvatori family have been in business in the Canterbury area of Kent. Salvatori pride themselves on old fashioned values by putting the customer first and ensuring that their needs are always met. They have expanded the business and now operate from multiple sites including a depot in France while continuing to develop and grow existing properties.

The Need

Connectivity at 2 sites of operation including VoIP telephony. A new development in Sittingbourne which has no existing infrastructure requires connectivity prior to infrastructure and road access completion.

The Solution

Fibre was the connectivity of choice for the Sittingbourne site development however as there was no existing infrastructure to deliver this service we had to offer a temporary solution that would be resilient enough for the needs of the new site. We provided a 18km licenced wireless link directly from the Dunkirk mast. This offered enough bandwidth for their internet and VoIP. Following completion of required infrastructure we would provide a 100Mb Fibre Leased Line and retain the licenced wireless link as a backup solution. For their existing Aylesham site they required wireless connectivity throughout their 6 warehouses. We upgraded their primary connection to a 1Gb Fibre Leased Line and installed wireless AP’s at certain points throughout the warehouses including working around an existing racking system to provide site wide Wifi Coverage. They are currently rolling out VoIP across this entire site since the Fibre upgrade and Orbital are integrating the site in to a unified VoIP solution across the business.

The Result

Across their sites Salvatori now have a fully hosted VoIP telephony system, 1Gb Fibre Leased Line with wireless back up and a 100Mb Fibre leased line with a wireless licensed link back up. Each site has a minimum of 20 office staff Orbital have now worked with Salvatori for approximately 10 years. We are their sole provider for all their telecoms needs.
