Ant Hire Ltd is an independent family run business based in Leeds, close to the M1/M62 junction. The company hire, sell and service a range of specialist products for civil engineering and drain services contractors throughout the UK.
Established in 1996, Ant Hire quickly earned a reputation for first class service and support within their market. Their commitment to research and development has produced a number of innovative new products and services for our customers. This has fuelled the growth of the company and has resulted in the need for additional sites and space within the hire centres. Ant Hire now have 3 sites in the Leeds area.
The mezzanine floor measuring 475 square metres virtually doubles the storage capacity of the building allowing for 2x cut outs for 2x Part K Staircases with fire protected fire escape. The finished floor height is 3.2m and has a load capacity of 7.2Kn/m2 with appropriate hand rail and pallet gate. The mezzanine floor is fully fire protected with suspended ceiling, lighting, column casing and fascias.
Terry Ingleby, Operations Manager for Ant Hire Ltd, commented “Upon purchasing a new warehouse we decided that we wanted a full span Mezzanine Floor installing. After various surveys and quotes it was decided that the obvious choice was Avanta, which proved to be the correct decision. The works began on the agreed date and were finished in the timescale that we had agreed, with the smallest amount of disruption. The fitters were first class, the quality of the products used was good and the attention to detail was second to none.
All in all, I would have no qualms in recommending Avanta to anyone wanting to have this type of work carried out.”
David Beattie, of Avanta UK Ltd – “We were delighted to win the Ant Hire mezzanine floor contract in the face of stiff competition. The resulting installation all completed in time and on budget by Avanta has doubled storage space within the hire centre for Ant Hire and helps future proof their storage requirements. We have installed many mezzanine floors in the Leeds area and nationwide enabling us to fine tune our mezzanine project work.”
Mezzanine floors are an excellent and economic way of increasing space versus costly relocation or extending existing premises and with Avanta’s free no obligation design and quotation service it could be worth investigating further.
