Martech UK are one of the leading designers and manufacturers of LED lighting in the country and have been supplying high quality luminaires to OEM’s for over 20 years. From humble beginnings in 1996, Martech’s clientele has grown to include the majority of the biggest names in the lighting industry.
Martech had occupied their current premises for a while but were beginning to outgrow their surroundings due to the expansion of their business. A surge in the number of clients had put a strain on their operations and in turn their available storage space. Logistically, they were beginning to struggle with satisfying their clients orders and maintaining their high level of customer service.
Martech were increasing their turnover, but were running out of space to actually build and manufacture the orders for their clients. They also required an extension to their first floor office space to allow them to expand their office team. Storage space was also at a premium so we suggested an office and storage mezzanine floor as the solution.
The project included the design and installation of a 324 square metre office mezzanine floor that adjoined to their current first floor office space. This has provided Martech with the much needed additional office space to grow their team.
The office facilities included an open plan space for the majority of their office staff, modern canteen facilities, technical rooms, a product display wall and a breakout area which included a pool table for their employees to relax.
We also installed floor to ceiling glass partitioning to create Martech’s numerous manager offices and we provided them with a furniture layout which helped to streamline their office operations.
We extended their existing production area and installed LED lighting within suspended ceilings below the mezzanine to ensure they had the light to operate. The new production area was designed in such a way to allow free flowing access to and from the warehouse for their lean manufacturing process.
Last but not least the new storage mezzanine floor facilities followed this. The 228 square metre mezzanine has been designed in such a way that if they should need it, it can be converted into office space in the future.

‘Here at Martech we pride ourself on working closely with our clients to make sure that they get exactly what they require. So it was great to find a company in Nexus that treated us the same way.’
‘As Operations Director my main concern was disruption to business. I’m glad to say that during the installation process, this was kept to a minimum.’ Mike Coult, Operations Director, Martech
The new premises have allowed Martech to take the next step in their growth. They have increased their turnover and have grown their clientele base. Production has increased due to the extra storage space too.
‘Without a shadow of doubt, the continued growth of Martech is partly attributed to the work carried out by Nexus. It has allowed us to keep pace with customer demand and given us time to plan for the future.’ – Mike Coult, Operations Director, Martech UK.
We would like to thank Mike and all at Martech UK for the opportunity to work on this project and make their new space for them. If your business requires extra storage or office space, contact us today. We specialise in creating space through mezzanine floor installations.
