Storage for steel fabricators

Posted on

Nottingham is proud to be able to say it has an active metal fabrication sector, with numerous specialist fabrication companies based in and around the city. Metal fabrication and related metal working is on the up, and it’s part of what makes Nottingham one of the major cities in the UK.

One aspect that every successful metal fabrication company understands is spatial awareness. Every space on the factory floor must be planned and organised. So it’s advisable to section off various parts of your factory floor to assist with implementing your floor plan. This will often centre around how you bring products in and out of your factory, which will then determine where you place your production benches and metal cutting machinery. Then you can plan each related section including your factory’s storage area.

In an ideal scenario, once you’ve planned your factory floor space, you can concentrate on the business at hand. However, during periods of increased production, you might need more space, and the inevitable shifting and reorganising begins. You might also find that you need to employ more staff during these increased production periods. Therefore, your factory floor space becomes even more crowded. The downtime related to reorganising and moving machinery also contributes to increased lead times. This can mean missed deadlines, late deliveries, and possibly, expensive overtime.
