All fired up

A joint effort by Hi-Lo Storage Systems and Kingstonian Storage Equipment has enabled Bartoline, a manufacturer and packer of solvents, adhesives, fillers and preservatives; to get back up and running after a fire destroyed its factory in East Yorkshire.

In May 2003, a fire decimated its factory in Beverley after spreading throughout the entire complex and ignited bulk storage containers and a tanker containing more than 32,000 litres of raw product. Supported by Hi-Lo Storage System, Kingstonian first racked a temporary store for Bartoline and has now completed fitting out the company’s new storage facility. Responding quickly to Bartoline’s need for immediate storage, Kingstonian dismantled existing racking from a temporary store and installed this together with new Hi-Lo Premierack in to the rented Catfoss site.
