Location : Chesterfield

Requirement :

Established in 1979, Flaretec Alloys & Equipment specialises in the manufacture of bespoke pipework, pressure vessels and heating equipment for the oil and gas industries.  Around 50 per cent of the company’s business is overseas and includes contracts in the Middle East and off shore.

Solution :

Having already acquired a Portakabin (Refurbished) portable building around eight years ago, Flaretec approached Portakabin (Refurbished)’ SMB department to source an additional building to accommodate the growing business.  A 34ft pre-owned Portakabin building was selected and supplied, providing two offices for the company’s fabrication manager and site foreman. 

Offices for a further four engineering staff were then required towards the end of the same year.  A larger 48ft portable building was chosen, configured as three offices, and delivered to site ready for occupation. 

Comments from the Client 

Ivan Manuel, Managing Director, Flaretec Alloys & Equipment: 

“The quality, availability and cost of Portakabin (Refurbished)’ portable buildings meet our needs.  They offer a good selection covering a range of building types for us to choose from, backed up by a good level of service.” 

“Second hand portable buildings are ideal for our business because they are available for occupation instantaneously – whereas it would take several months to build offices from scratch.” 

The Advantages of Second Hand Portakabin Buildings 

Portakabin (Refurbished) is the largest stockist of pre-owned Portakabin buildings in the UK.  The units are immediately available for sale on an ‘as seen basis’ and range in size from 10ft to 60ft long, providing a fast and highly cost-effective alternative to new.  Applications include buildings for production staff, offices, security or storage space.  

All the buildings, which were manufactured by Portakabin – the UK market leader – are fast to install with low foundation costs.  Portakabin (Refurbished)’ stocks also meet a full range of finishes, standards and budget requirements, and are held at the company’s operational centres in East Yorkshire and Hemel Hempstead ready for viewing.
