In the bag for West Wilts Diving club

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility program, Dexion Storage Systems, have sponsored the individual kit bags for West Wilts Diving Club. This youth, high board diving club, operates at a very high level, with some competitors taking part in National Age Group events and competing with the GB Elite Squad for places on the GB Team.

Scott Williams, Dexion’s Marketing Manager for the UK said, “We are very proud to support this local club and to have our name on their team kit bags. These are the Olympians of the future and as such they take our name all over the UK as they compete in competitions.” Training at the swimming pool in Trowbridge the club has almost 30 members ranging in age from 8 to 18 years, with many continuing as they become involved in coaching, some having gone on to work at the top level in the sport.

Melanie Sweetman, the team’s head coach said, “The diving club is very grateful to Dexion for their sponsorship, equipment costs so much these days and the families have to pay for transport to events in places like Leeds, Plymouth and Southampton, having the bags provided by Dexion is very helpful.

 

Premier Storage Puts Everything Under One Roof For St Leger Homes

Everything, including the kitchen sink – that is exactly what St Leger Homes wanted to house in its new depot at Shaw Lane Industrial Estate in Doncaster, and Doncaster’s Premier Storage has made that possible.

Merging the facilities of several depots into one 1820 square metre unit, St Leger Homes – DMBC’s Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO) which manages 21,000 council homes – has created a fantastic administration and storage facility that is both efficient and cost effective with the help of Premier Storage.

Premier Storage won the contract, valued at over £100,000, beating off stiff competition on the way. Working with St Leger Homes from the very beginning, Premier Storage’s Managing Director, Mark Jepson was heavily involved with the contract.

He says “I am delighted that we won this piece of work and that St Leger Homes chose the Dexion system, for which we are the sole distributor in this area. St Leger Homes’ other depots had the same systems installed so they are quite used to it and know that it is secure, practical, reliable and that parts are easy to obtain. I designed the system for St Leger Homes and worked quite closely with them, so they know exactly who they are dealing with and who they need to talk to regarding the system’s maintenance etc. The build and installation went very smoothly, despite its complexity, taking only 7 weeks from placing the order to completion. It houses everything from kitchens to beds, and all of these things need to be quickly and easily accessible, so we used quite an array of storage systems including racking, cantilever, long span, normal shelving and a mezzanine floor. As usual, I sourced all of my labour locally – this time everyone was from Rossington – and was absolutely delighted with the results.”

Mark is now discussing further work with St Leger Homes including car park solutions, small part storage and labelling, so the relationship looks likely to flourish further.

St Leger Homes has established the new centralised depot as part of a move to achieve business efficiencies. The company manages around 21,000 properties on behalf of Doncaster Council and carries out more than 130,000 repairs, maintenance and gas servicing visits each year.
