Design Case Study - The Half Moon Dump Bin

B&M was formed in 1978 and is now one of the leading variety retailers in the UK.From its first store in Blackpool, Lancashire, B&M has grown to over 500 stores and employs over 22,500 staff. B&M believe in selling top branded products at sensational prices and attract over 3 million happy customers through our doors a week.B&M has stores throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.


 B&M came to AWP to help them source a curved dump bin to help with their impulse-purchase strategy throughout their stores.The bin had to be small enough to be unobtrusive in the aisles but large enough to hold a reasonable amount of product. In addition the bin had to be portable for fast store placement, robust and have an adjustable shelf for flexible product merchandising.

Our Design Team came up with an initial concept which was drawn up on our CAD system and presented to the client for review.  

A sample was fabricated from the drawings in our tool room; this sample was then submitted to our customer for their feedback. After the fine-tuning process, the powder-coated prototype was signed-off by the customer and put into full production.

Our customer is very happy with the product and has since ordered over 10,000 units.
