Mississauga Area Dry Storage Structure
A plastics manufacturing company in Mississauga Ontario were using off site and tractor trailer vans to store their products prior to shipping. This added considerable expense to their operations.
We built a 70ft wide x 170ft long (12,000 sq ft) fabric storage structure at the rear of their property. This structure is fully engineered to the snow and wind loads specific to the Mississauga area.
In order to allow easy access to the new storage building, we also built a connecting tunnel that ties into the manufacturing facility. A fully loaded forklift can now go from the plant to the new storage building no matter what the weather.
The customer is pleased with the convenience and the economy that our new facility offers.
