York-based engineered metalwork specialists, Plowman Brothers, have completed a major investment in product development with the launch of a re-locatable tensile fabric building which is ideal for companies seeking tentative growth in a post-recession climate.
Already well established as manufacturers and engineers of metal fabricated products such as livestock containers, Plowman’s diversification into temporary building solutions is a response to demand from companies that need extra business space at short notice without taking a financial risk through high capital expenditure. The result of their three-year CAD and physical development programme is a fully galvanized facility that provides flexible storage space. The company has incorporated a combination of standard features which no rival product offers, including a high quality, clearspan structure, regardless of its size.
Managing director, Matt Plowman, explained:
"With the fluid environment in many of today’s industries and the unpredictability of the economic recovery, temporary building solutions are a superb option for companies seeking low-risk expansion. Our buildings pass all relevant regulations and they are suitable for a multitude of commercial and industrial uses, from storage and warehousing to manufacturing facilities and distribution bases."
"Given the sporadic nature of the recovery in many sectors, re-locatable tensile fabric buildings allow companies to react quickly to an unexpected surge in business without a long-term financial commitment, should that surge prove to be an isolated case rather than the start of a pattern."
"We have also taken care to improve on the specification available elsewhere in the market by providing the option of longer life, heavy duty materials for a more permanent, long term re-locatable building. We are delighted with the results and I think that re-locatable tensile fabric buildings will become a major factor in Plowman’s own expansion in the coming years."
