The Atlas Copco Group is a world-leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions. The Group serves customers in more than 180 countries with products and services focused on productivity, energy efficiency, safety and ergonomics.
UK subsidiary – Atlas Copco Limited, trading as Atlas Copco Medical – based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, appointed The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd. because of their reputation for task dependent project management and being able to provide a turnkey solution, on time and within budget.
The scheme comprised dismantling existing pallet racking and long-span shelving to clear an area for a proposed mezzanine floor.
A mezzanine floor was constructed and fitted with two staircases, perimeter hand railing and a hinged pallet safety gate. An aperture was provided to enable a 7.5-metre tall vertical carousel storage unit to be installed, as part of the turnkey solution. The back of the adjacent pallet racking was clad with back-of-rack mesh to protect personnel working on the mezzanine. Building Regulation approval was obtained as part of the overall project.
Over 100 bays of bolt-free shelving complete with plastic storage bins were installed to maximise the additional space created by the mezzanine floor.
Mr David Carrington – Warehouse Logistics Manager for Atlas Copco Medical commented, “The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd. gave us invaluable advice. They planned, managed and completed the project to our complete satisfaction; the outcome was exactly what we wanted”.
The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd. provides complete turnkey installations. We take the issue of Health & Safety within the business and on our client’s premises very seriously and to emphasise our commitment, we have held ‘Accredited Contractor’ status with SafeContractor since 2007.
