Nexus are a professional firm, we’ve enjoyed working with them and I’d be more than happy to recommend them to any potential customers.
Pexa Ltd are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of high tech materials to the aerospace, defence, energy and electronics industries. These materials include aircraft maintenance products, application equipment and surface finishing materials.
Pexa’s operations had been slowly growing for some time and they decided that they needed a larger premises, which included both a bigger warehouse and office facilities. In the Autumn of 2015, Pexa identified and moved into a new premises in Halifax that provided them with just that.
However the warehouse facilities required a fit out to ensure that they were suitable for Pexa’s business operations. Pexa needed a contractor that would design and implement the fit out of their new industrial interiors to their requirements.
Watch our video case study for the project featuring Managing Director Jim Rowbotham sharing his thoughts on working with Nexus Workspace and the new facilities.
The search for a solution
When searching for a contractor, Jim Rowbotham the Managing Director at Pexa admits that they did consider individually contracting each element of the warehouse fit out project, but they soon realised that this wouldn’t be a cost effective option and would cost far too much.
Not only that, but it would have made Pexa Ltd the principal contractors for the project, meaning that they would be liable for all health and safety and ensuring that building regulations were met. Once this information was discovered, they decided to search for a contractor that could take this responsibility away from them.
They contacted us after receiving a leaflet from our sales representative Cliff Law. Once we received the call, we arranged a visit to their premises to discuss their requirements.
Once we arrived at Pexa’s premises, we got to work surveying their industrial warehouse’s interior and began suggesting options for their new space. It was evident that Pexa needed a full turn-key solution provider to carry out the warehouse fit out project for them. That’s what we here at Nexus specialise in.
Our discussions with Pexa were not only to find out their requirements for the new space but to allow us to discover how their business works, ensuring that we provide them with the best solution.
We then returned to the office to design Pexa’s new space to their requirements, which included a complete warehouse fit out and new kitchen facilities. These designs were created and delivered to Pexa within one week and then budget costs were provided within 10 days, once the designs were agreed upon.
The proposals for Pexa included a complete warehouse fit out including, new warehouse floor paint, an explosion proof paint manufacturing room and racking for storage. The plans also included a brand new kitchen space for their employees.
We provided our quotation in a ‘shopping list’ style which allowed Jim and Pexa to see where each cost lies in the project. This transparency was appreciated by Pexa, as it is with all our clients.
This along with our competitive prices and in depth designs ensured that Pexa chose us to carry out their warehouse fit out project for them.
Pexa’s project involved the creation of a new explosion proof paint manufacturing room at one end of their warehouse, with storage racking systems populating the rest of the warehouse space. Before any of this was created however, we needed to give the warehouse floor a brand new coat of floor paint.
Once the floor paint was complete, we got to work on creating the explosion proof paint manufacturing room. This was created through the installation of partitioning, suspended ceilings and brand new lighting.
Pexa’s new kitchen space included the installation of new flooring, tables, sink, cupboards and all electrical requirements. This new space is perfect for both warehouse and office employees to mingle and enjoy their lunch together.
Pexa’s Managing Director Jim Rowbotham said ‘now we’ve got a facility to be proud of and it meets all of our needs, we hope to be here for another 10 years and if we were to do the project again, I don’t think we would change anything that we did’.
‘Nexus are a professional firm, we’ve enjoyed working with them and I’d be more than happy to recommend them to any potential customers’ added Jim. The new premises allow Pexa to continue to grow their business and meet their important clients needs.
We have enjoyed working with Jim and everyone at Pexa and we thank them for the opportunity to work with them and wish them all the best for the future.
We would love to partner with you to achieve your goals….
