Dedicated to improving manufacturing efficiency

Composite panel construction and cold store warehouse specialist to boost UK manufacturing capability

The £300,000 investment to improve its manufacturing facilities includes a new roll forming line for composite panel metal skins, plus vacuum lifting and fabrication equipment

Following an extensive evaluation, the company has also switched to the BASF Elastopor rigid polyurethane foam system used for the rigid core of structural insulated panels and doors, due to its superior and consistent thermal properties over a predicted 25-year lifespan. Other benefits include a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of ‘less than 5’ and an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of Zero.

The investment will increase capacity and support continued quality and efficiency improvements covering the production of a range of bespoke insulated structural panels, cold-room doors and associated fittings used in a variety of construction and maintenance projects. These cover supermarket cold stores, food preparation and cleanroom environments, plus other commercial and industrial buildings.

At the same time increased capacity will reduce the dependency on imported cold room products and improve quality and product development for the company’s expanding off-the-peg modular and bespoke cold room solutions, used in a wide range of smaller businesses from catering to pharmaceuticals.

Tony Wall, Managing Director of ISD Solutions commented: “Boosting our manufacturing expertise and capacity in this way allows us to take more control over product delivery and quality and fits perfectly with our long term strategy to provide a totally integrated end-to-end solution for our customers incorporating consultancy, design, manufacturing, installation.  This extended capability will also benefit customers taking advantage of our newly formed cold store maintenance division.”

Wall continued: “The new more environmentally friendly BASF foam also fits with our desire to be conscious of the responsibility we have to work in ways that reduce our impact on the environment.”

With 6 new staff appointments in the last year alone taking headcount to 105, and in recent months the establishment of a new design office team, cold store maintenance division and an industrial waterproofing division, this new manufacturing capability will support further growth. Meanwhile the company already has healthy order books for 2016.

Recent projects include the completion of the 150th cold store development for Morrisons supermarkets, a multi-million pound cold storage warehouse for the Spanish pharmaceutical giant Grifols and we continue to be one of Aldi’s approved contractors for building new stores.
