DCS Cold Storage

REQUIREMENT:

Based in Ashford, Kent, DCS Cold Storage sells fruits such as grapes, pineapples and bananas to a host of leading supermarkets. The firm required significant additional storage capacity – with temperature optimisations – to support their ambitious growth plan as they looked to supply more produce into UK supermarkets.

SOLUTION:

To support its growth plans, DCS Cold Storage hired two of our Neivalu structures with thermo-insulated roofing, which resulting in a significant increase in trade since moving operations inside the bespoke temporary warehouses.

Not only do the five metre-tall temporary buildings feature portal beams to create an unobstructed L-shaped space measuring 1,200sqm, they are constructed using insulated uPVC sandwich wall panels and a thermo-inflated roof to support a chilled environment.

In fact this is so successful, that DCS Cold Storage is able to satisfy customers’ stringent demands for keeping different fruit at different temperatures at various locations within the temporary warehouse – and all at a fraction of the cost of erecting a purpose-built facility from scratch.
