3PL Howard Tenens uses retractable canopy installed by Copri Systems to protect against the elements.
Howard Tenens provides high quality, value for money supply chain solutions for an array of customers, with a warehouse footprint of over 3,000,000 sq ft in the UK.
Based in Winsford, the privately owned logistics company was outgrowing their existing warehouse due to securing a new contract, which led them to taking on the warehouse next door. Although the new facility had warehouse doors and a concrete road installed, the warehouse wasn’t protected against the elements, and so required a fully retractable canopy to be fitted.
CopriSystems, a UK leader in the supply and erection of covering technology, were chosen as the preferred contractor for the job.
Anthony Smith, health, safety and facilities manager for the north at Howard Tenens, explains how he trusted CopriSystems to do an excellent job: “Although CopriSystems wasn’t the most competitively priced of the companies interested in carrying out the work, their unrivalled capability and technical expertise gave us confidence that they were the company for the job.
“CopriSystems also completed the necessary groundworks prior to the structure being installed, which we were most impressed with.”
The canopy provided to Howard Tenens was fully bespoke, with the option to retract to allow emergency vehicles and maintenance machinery to pass between the warehouses when required.
Director at CopriSystems, Rafe Colenso, was proud to deliver the canopy to Howard Tenens and is pleased the logistics company is happy with the solution.
Says Rafe: “The key to CopriSystems success is our extensive experience of lightweight industrial buildings and our technical expertise.
“We provide an individual solution to every project, ensuring that design and installation meets the specification required for each client.”
