EPE International, Bradford
EPE international are a fast growing supplier of electrical goods throughout the UK. Having consistently grown turnover year after year the company needed to expand its warehousing operation to maintain its growth. The companies ethos is to supply top quality products and service yet offer great value for money. They also expect the same from their suppliers. When looking at the new warehouse they contacted various racking companies who supplied both new and used racking. They had various quotes with a wide range of prices.
It soon became apparent that the whole used racking market became a minefield. Some of those quoting did not appear very professional. One of the companies contacted was secondhandracking.com. Although as the name says they supply used racking they took the approach of looking at what the correct solution was then seeing what racking they had to meet this needs. It would have been a false economy to compromise on the most efficient solution and it became apparent that the most economic beams were not available second hand.
The solution offered was to completely refurbish some frames provide totally new bracing and new beams. The result is a racking installation that looks new but as a secondary benefit the uprights are much stronger than if they were new which means that should the company move again and be able to build the racking higher they can take it with them.
