Pure and simple storage

Purity Soft Drinks needed to boost production of its fruit juices and smoothies quickly following the launch of a new product, but required additional storage space to do so.

After searching the web for temporary warehouse space, Purity rented a large canopy structure from temporary building specialist Spaciotempo to stack and store cases of plastic bottles ready for the production line.

The 10m x 25m x 6m canopy is located adjacent to the main factory so that bottles can be transported by forklift on a just in time basis.
The aluminium structure is clad with uPVC panels and a roof covering to provide the building with wind tolerances to BSI standards, and it has six metre unobstructed eaves height which allows for high level racking.

The whole structure is anchored to the existing ground by a locked pine mechanism.

Mike Cox, production director at Purity, says: “We needed to ramp up production quickly following the highly successful launch of a new range of fruit juices. It is very important to us that our processes are meticulous and that includes storing all bottles in a clean environment, away from the elements.

“We were able to identify, procure and install a temporary building solution extremely quickly from Spaciotempo.”
