Case study: EFAFLEX and Dawsonrentals – working together for combined client benefits

Case study: EFAFLEX and Dawsonrentals – working together for combined client benefits

‘I didn’t know you did that’ is a comment often heard by Dawsonrentals temperature control solutions (DRTCS), part of Dawsongroup plc - a nationwide privately owned group of companies specialising in commercial asset rental. The same can be said of EFAFLEX with their ever-expanding portfolio of high-speed doors! DRTCS visited the ‘PPMA’ Show in 2015 where they met Telford based EFAFLEX. This was swiftly followed by a factory visit to their Head Quarters in Bavaria, where they saw first-hand the doors being manufactured to the company’s exacting and uncompromising German standards.

Dawsonrentals temperature control solutions have been the long standing market leader within their industry for over 25 years. They boast a wide product portfolio, from coldstores to production facilities to bespoke builds, serving a range of industries such as the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Their first-rate service, delivered with speed and flexibility is what sets them apart from their competitors, allowing for collaborations with other industry leaders to fulfil customers’ exact requirements.

EFAFLEX UK Limited Key Account Manager Ian Woodhouse stated: ‘We are delighted to support Dawsonrentals as a fellow business who believe in delivering an exceptional customer experience. We have installed a number of high-speed doors on their behalf to clients who are looking to improve their productivity and user safety’. He went on, ‘We manufacture the fastest vertically opening spiral door. And for temperature control, where air cleanliness or insulation are a paramount consideration, our doors offer exceptional value, performance and reliability’.

DRTCS first used the EFAFLEX ‘TK’ model, designed as a deep-freeze door solution, that simultaneously offers the best insulation values (0,62 W/m²K), the highest possible opening and closing speeds and up to 200,000 p.a. operating cycles for frequent usage. It is truly a single door solution for deep- freeze applications.

Continually looking to push the boundaries of high-speed door technology, EFAFLEX recently introduced the ‘CRC’ model to compliment the range. Originally designed for the cosmetics industry, this particular door features slim, space saving supporting legs, the benefit of reduced headroom requirements and exceptional air retention capabilities, making it the perfect partner for Dawsonrentals temperature control solutions.

Garry Silcock, Installations Manager at DRTCS commented: ‘as a supplier, EFAFLEX offers exactly what we need. Our clients look to us and rely on our experience to offer advice on how we can supply innovative solutions that will improve their manufacturing processes and reduce capital spending. With our European presence increasing, Dawsongroup has a rental portfolio amounting to over 18,000 assets. With EFAFLEX’s help we can now supply a full range of cold stores and cold room solutions to our broadening customer base’.
