Continuing its long term relationship of providing independent plumbing and building supplies company, Coomers, with quality products and a first rate service, Spaceway Group's Storage Division has installed racking systems at the company's expanding and refurbished depot at Oakhanger, near Bordon in Hampshire. Spaceway has provided Coomers with a three-phase installation, which includes pallet racking, cantilever racking and longspan storage.
To kick off the project, Spaceway increased Coomers external pallet racking by reconfiguring its existing pallet racking and installing 21 bays of new racking to accommodate 210 pallet locations. In addition a further 12 bays of new pallet racking, to accommodate up to 96 pallets was installed in the company's new warehouse.
With the first phase completed, Spaceway turned its attention to timber storage by relocating the existing cantilever racking into a newly designed layout. A further six new bays of cantilever racking provided Coomers with 42 linear metres for timber storage. Finally, Spaceway designed and installed a further four new bays of cantilever racking for general storage and five bays designed specifically for concrete/timber post storage.
To complete the final phase of the refit, Spaceway installed four bays of longspan racking into Coomers retail store. The longspan racking has been specifically designed for retail use and incorporates all the necessary shop fitting components.
"Spaceway provided us with detailed drawings and advised us on the best configuration to maximise space both externally and our new warehouse", says Viv Barnes, Branch Manager at Coomers Oakhanger depot. "Once again we were delighted with the service and quality of products provided".
