Business Booms at Derby

Hard work is paying dividends at Portable Offices? Derby depot where approaches to businesses and relationship building has resulted in a continuous rush of orders.

Samantha Lawless, Customer Account Manager, says the depot is the busiest she can recall it being at this time of year. She said: ?This time of year usually marks a quieter time, where we can catch up and start planning for the next year ahead, but this year the yard is busier than ever and the phones haven?t stopped ringing.?

A more positive economic outlook has no doubt contributed to the upturn in Derby?s fortunes with more business coming in from companies looking to expand their offices and warehousing.? A major pharmaceutical company in Grimsby is typical of this with a need to expand into further store rooms and a new toilet block, they took on seven modular buildings totalling 164 sq m.

A Wednesbury based, industrial laundry services for hotels, hospitals and work wear across the UK has experienced significant growth which has resulted in expansion of their facilities. They opted to purchase six modular buildings to provide 252 sq m of offices and sales rooms for their growing staff numbers.

The schools places crisis is continuing to impact on the portable accommodation sector. Derby has provided temporary classrooms for contractors working on capital building projects for schools Birmingham and Northampton.

A junior school in Birmingham has opted for 115 sq m of portable buildings to provide a new sports hall for children. Here a light, bright four bay modular building complete with wooden flooring provides a state-of-the-art area for PE and games.

Just a few weeks ago a portable building was provided to a national dog rehoming centre in Lincolnshire and now a further building has been provided to the operation?s Hull centre and six weeks later it was moved to the Nottingham rescue.

Derby depot has a new person joining the sales team shortly and the next update will include a few details by way of introduction.

Business Development Manager, Dean Dixon, commented on Derby?s situation: ?It?s been one of the busiest summers for our depot. We are certainly experiencing a return of optimism within the private sector and long may this continue.

?Even smaller enterprises are enjoying an upturn in business.? We have just provided a sales suite to a skip hire company and are about to provide a six bay modular building to a marine engineering company at the docks at Lowestoft.?

?Derby?s central location and its role as a hub for the entire Portable Offices? network has generated something of a renaissance in the operation with a new energy and enthusiasm permeating the entire business.?
