Since launching a brand new depot last year in Gillingham, Kent, C&A
Building Plastics has gone from strength to strength. As a result of its
success the leading supplier of plastic building materials needed to create
more storage space on site and it approached racking specialist Wickens to
design a solution.
Wickens was commissioned to design, engineer and install a 19m x 11m
mezzanine floor to enable C&A Building Plastics to store an additional
number of pallets at its Gillingham facility. Wickens engineers were also
on site during the design stage to ensure that the mezzanine leg supports
would fit around existing cutting machinery without limiting access or
causing any health and safety issues.
Charles Candlin, managing director of C&A Building Plastics, comments: "We
chose Wickens because it has design, manufacturing and installation
capabilities in-house at its Worcester headquarters and because of its track
record with us. The Wickens team had already proven their capabilities when
they managed a sizeable cantilever racking project for us one year ago.
Their professionalism and ability to meet our specific needs made them the
natural choice for this project."
