Rapid expansion of specialist manufacturer and worldwide distributor of ‘Dry’ and ‘Oil immersed’ friction products presented a common challenge – not enough warehouse space to accommodate the growth – but too little extra product to make moving or renting external warehouse space a viable option.
Increasing orders means more warehouse space
When the world leader in the manufacturer and global distribution of friction and steel discs – used extensively in Earthmoving and Mining aftermarket’s – needed more space to accommodate significant growth, they explored all the options when considering expanding their increased warehousing needs. Timescales ruled out a conventional extension, logistics ruled out an off-site facility but a temporary building ticked every requirement.
Converting yard space to a fully operational warehouse in days
The 12m wide, 15m long temporary warehouse was configured to the space available. Unlike a conventionally built extension, this could extent right up to the property boarder (No permanent development can come within 5m of the curtilage boundary – that’s a lot of wasted space!)
