£1/4 million turnkey project for Premier Storage.

Premier Storage and Office Solutions beat off stiff competition to land a prestigious project to redesign and build electrical giant CEFCO’s new distribution centre at Ten Pound Walk in Doncaster.

7000 breezeblocks went into the 70 mtr x 40 mtr warehouse and 2 storey office block which took just 4 months to complete, vastly increasing CEFCO’s pallet racking facilities and transforming the building with a ultra modern glass front.

Sticking to his policy of using local labour wherever possible, Mark Jepson, Premier Storage’s managing director brought in 15 different trades, from builders to carpet fitters to complete the project which included offices, kitchen areas and an impressive 22 mtr x 8 mtr board room.

Mark says “We have worked with CEFCO before and were really pleased that they were impressed enough with our work to award this project to us. We are now delighted that CEFCO has decided to expand the premises and we have been asked to complete similar work on the adjoining building. We have plans for future expansion and of course it is projects like this that will help us along the way.”

Scunthorpe Pallet Racking Project

In July Premier Storage were given the green light to proceed with a full Pallet Racking Installation by TSC Foods, a leading Food Production company based in Scunthorpe. As Dexions main distributor for Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas, Premier Storage utilized Dexions flagship P90 Galvanised Pallet Racking product as the natural choice for TSC’s refrigeration warehouse.

After an initial inspection of their previous Mobile system, Premier Storage designed a bespoke, more robust, APR Pallet racking system. The new layout gave much more fork truck manoeuvrability which satisfied TSC’s requirements for a faster throughput of goods. The galvanised finish on Dexion P90 and the High visibility Ballistic Grade Rack Armour column guards help ensure the systems resilience to corrosion and be fully operational for decades to come.

The project involved a full strip out of the existing mobile system including the mobile bases, frames and Beams. Premier storage project managed everything including the strip out and removal of the old system through to installing the new Racking system complete with barriers, guards and loading signs.

Matt Panton, TSC’s Warehouse manager expressed his delight with the system, saying the install couldn’t have gone any better and thanked Premiers Installation team for their flexibility during the installation to help keep the warehouse operational.
