Blackburns Metals had three divisions under one roof in substantial premises they had occupied on the Birmingham new road for over 40 years. Due to the continued success of the business as a whole it was decided to split up the divisions and relocate them into autonomous premises.
Last to move was the sheet and tube division. Spartan have been working with Blackburns for a considerable number of years and were instrumental in the original fit out. Things have changed over the years and the original racking was getting old and damaged. It was decided that new racking would be supplied at the new premises to make the most the 10.0m eaves height, so cantilever racking was supplied in single and double sided format up to 8.0m high to suit standard pack sizes ranging from 2500mm x 1250mm up to 3000mm x 1500mm and 1000kgs in weight.
Additionally cantilever racking was supplied in modules of three columns to suit the extruded product range.
Once again Spartan were able to oblige by supplying, delivering and installing all of the racking and the labeling after a lengthy consultation period during which many premises were surveyed, drawings done and decisions made about capacity. Once the premises had been agreed upon Spartan were also able to assist in the layout of the whole site, by bringing their extensive knowledge of warehousing operations together with their ability to get it all drawn up in CAD format.
” If it hadn’t been for Spartans assistance, I don’t know how we would have coped! They were there every step of the way and continue to be so, with some slight operation issues we have experienced. As soon as we call they are there. That sort of service is priceless to us”
