Fabrack for Accrofab

Industrial Racking Storage for Sheet Metal Materials

Stakapal were the preferred supplier for Accrofab’s manufacturing facility in Derby. The East Midland based company – a major supplier to the Aerospace sector, was established in 1977. The growth of the company has been achieved through continuous investment in new technologies, with manufacturing techniques including : Sheet metal working, CNC machining, Laser cutting, Welding and Vacuum heat treatment. This is supported by a customer portfolio including world leading aerospace manufacturers and universities.

With limited space for stock and work in progress, combined with double handling and easy access to raw materials, the need for a Cantilever Racking system was quickly becoming an essential investment for the business.

"There was very little difference in the prices obtained from those who quoted, and whilst the Stakapal price was competitive it was the advanced structural design of their Cantilever Racking system that sealed it for us." Edward goes on to say "We take every investment we make very seriously and this project was no exception. Stakapal were extremely accommodating and a visit to an existing client of theirs only reaffirmed my thoughts, as the installation I was taken to incorporated varying types of Cantilever profiles and clearly demonstrated that we had committed to the right product."
