Heron Foods are a family owned food retailer based in East Riding of Yorkshire which first opened in Hull of 1979; they now have over 230 stores trading throughout the North of England and the Midlands.

Heron Foods are constantly striving to bring the consumer the very best brands and value in frozen chilled and grocery products.


To upgrade the structured cabling of the EPOS till system at 238 sites within a 6 month timeframe thereby creating a fast and reliable network infrastructure.

Solution highlights

The main challenge associated with the project was that all 238 sites needed to be re-cabled within a 6 month period across a large area. This meant that Conceptunet had to mobilise quickly to ensure the sites were ready for the installation of the new tills.

As part of the project Conceptunet installed over 100 Kilometres of Excel Category 5e U/UTP cable and around 4,500 outlets across the sites. All of this was successfully managed and implemented within to original 6 month schedule by Conceptunet engineers.

Additional to the structured cabling Excel wall mounted easy access 9U cabinets were installed at each site where the structured cabling was terminated.

Products were consistently delivered by Mayflex to site as and when required by Conceptunet to ensure that this tight schedule was kept to.


Staff at Heron Foods can be confident that their customers can now experience a faster and more efficient shopping experience no matter which store they visit.

A smooth roll-out of each store meant the minimum amount of fuss to the customer during the whole project.
