Spaciotempo, the UK’s leading temporary buildings provider, is showcasing how semi-permanent structures can help UK manufacturers at MACH 2018, on stand H6-246.
With many companies keen to grow but cautious over economic uncertainty, Spaciotempo’s range of buildings to buy or hire brings a scalable, cost-effective solution perfect to support seasonal peaks, relocation and additional manufacturing space.
The need for an alternative to permanent production or warehouse space is clear. According to the most recent CBI Quarterly Industrial Trends Survey, appetite among firms to invest in new buildings has fallen to its lowest level since 2009, to a net balance of -30 per cent. While orders and output are still above historic levels, the uncertainty caused by Brexit is affecting confidence in investment.
While optimism may not be high, growth plans shouldn’t be scrapped altogether, says Spaciotempo. The company will be demonstrating how growth can still happen if manufacturers invest wisely in their space and storage solutions.
Scott Jameson, MD of Spaciotempo, comments: “No doubt uncertainty is high, and it will stay that way until all the details of Brexit are ironed out. However, the opportunity to grow is still present.
“We have seen the confidence to invest in new buildings eroded, and that is down to high upfront investment costs. What manufacturers must realise is that temporary buildings can be just as good, if not an even better alternative, for those looking to up their output or factory space.”
Spaciotempo offers a range of cost-effective, quick to install and customisable structures. The company works across all industrial markets, providing solutions for production, freight, storage, logistics and warehouses.
“While we say they are temporary structures, there is no reason why they cannot be a semi-permanent part of your facility. Able to be built from as small as 5m widths up to 36m widths, they can be scalable to your needs and whether you are cautious or optimistic, there is a solution that will fit the bill. Please come and see us on stand H6-246 to discuss your plans with us”, said Jameson
The MACH Show Exhibition takes place from Monday 9th to Friday 13th April 2018 at NEC Birmingham and is organised by The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA).
