“Because it is a straightforward process for us to get a new temporary building up and running, acquiring extra on-site space this way is an approach that is working out extremely well for us.”
James Bridson
Group Warehouse & Distribution Manager for Symington’s

Case Study

About this job
Convenience food manufacturer Symington’s, which had been a customer of Spaciotempo in the past, undertook an ambitious expansion programme following a management buy-out. In quick succession, it snapped up well-known brands such as Ragu and Chicken Tonight cooking sauces and UK baking business Victoria Foods, which ledto an increase in the amount of products Symington’s was handling at its site in Leeds.

Requirement
Since it already had a temporary building and had spare land on its site, Symington’s made using temporary warehousing a key part of its growth strategy. However, such was the speed of the acquisitions of the new brands and the instant impact on its business, that Symington’s needed the extra space as quickly as possible.

Building
We erected a new 3,000 sqm temporary warehouse from our TempAstor range, which provided room for 2,700 pallets of finished products in a matter of weeks. Placed behind another temporary warehouse, it was fitted with radar activated speed doors to enable fast and efficient access for forklift trucks.

Outcome
James Bridson, group warehouse and distribution manager for Symington’s, said: “Because it is a straightforward process for us to get a new temporary building up and running, acquiring extra on-site space this way is an approach that is working out extremely well for us.

“In the long term, we will look at more permanent warehousing, but for the moment, and while we continue to grow, Spaciotempo’s buildings are a perfect temporary fix.”
