As you may recall, the last issue of easi-news provided a progress report on building work taking place at Wolf Systems' Coventry HQ. Now into the second half of the year, works are complete and the company is already reaping rewards from the investment.
"The building has made a great difference in how we operate. By bringing together our nailplate and easi-joist® web factories, we've been able to improve production efficiencies and streamline material flow around the premises," details Managing Director, David Leaney who oversaw the design and build.
"The new building is designed as a covered loading bay which means we can, for the first time, unload steel supplies undercover and out of the rain - a real benefit this summer!
"Overall the construction project went really smoothly and I'm sure this was helped by the involvement of our group offices from the offset. The new building bridges the old buildings perfectly and the addition of automatic gates and perimeter fencing adds to the security and safety of the whole site.
"Of course we've also got far more storage space than before and this is proving very useful in holding stock reserves as our customers continue to get busier.
"Last year was actually the best performing in our 28-year history and based on the first half of 2016, our ability to maintain the upward trend looks promising. Whatever the rest of the year has in-store, we're ready and continue to invest in the future success of our customers."
