Pallet and pump truck experts welcome increased temporary buildings increase

Midland Pallet Trucks, one of the country’s leading suppliers of pallet trucks , trolleys and other warehouse equipment, has welcomed the news that one of the leading manufacturers and installers of temporary buildings in the UK, has noted an increase in sales enquiries over the last couple of months.

Midlands-based Smart-Space says that the pique in interest has come since Brexit referendum in May. The well-documented weakening of the pound against other currencies has improved the export potential for a host of UK industries. This means that manufacturing exporters and their suppliers are looking at different cost-effective methods of expanding their storage or manufacturing capacity quickly on their current sites so they can take advantage of the situation in order to grow their presence in both current and new markets.

“The Brexit result was initially a worry for many businesses,” comments Phil Chesworth, Managing Director at Midland Pallet Trucks. “With many being plunged into the unknown, the business landscape was seemingly unsteady immediately after the result. However the fact that businesses are still investing – regardless of how long for – shows hope for the future economy. And we are certain that the strength and resilience of the UK market will shine through, and these temporary buildings will soon turn into permeant fixtures – even when the pound jumps back up.”

Temporary warehouses provide an ideal solution for a range of businesses. Whether they have simply overstocked, are cautious about the market or are testing the waters, they are cost-effective and don’t leave businesses facing huge bills should they not be needed six months to a year down the line.

Another reason for the spike could be due to many organisations experiencing significant post-recession growth pre-Brexit. These businesses are now unsure how their overseas trade will be affected by the impending negotiations. As a result, plans for significant expansion are now either being put on hold or are being reviewed to examine the alternatives to major or long-term investment.
