Custom storage solution

Leading automotive plastic component supplier Nifco UK called on Rubb to design and construct a custom storage building solution to maximise available space.

Nifco UK is based close to Rubb in Stockton-on-Tees, and has been in business since 1967. Nifco is a global company employing over 10,000 people in 17 countries, specialising in designing and manufacturing plastic components for the global automotive industry, which are used in the interior, exterior, and engines of vehicles.

The storage warehouse measures 28.3m wide x 48 long with an eaves high of 6.5m for the clearance of lorries and internal racking units. The building was also designed with two fire access doors and a guttering system. With the building construction being so close to an existing canopy, Rubb had to make sure the space in between the buildings was weather tight with a PVC fabric, sealed termination cover.

Low maintenance

The steel frame of the building is hot-dip galvanized after production to eliminate any chance of corrosion. The frame comes with a 25-year warranty and the PVC-coated, lightweight fabric cladding requires very low maintenance and comes with a manufacturers’ warranty of 10 years.

Zero disruption

While constructing the Rubb storage facility, the team worked around the normal day-to-day running of the Nifco business. As well as serving as a pallet storage facility, the building has two 6m wide x 6m high openings at each end to accommodate the entrance and exit of the transport through road. As the structure was being built across a busy area of the business, the Rubb team needed to adapt the building plan to fit in with working hours and area usage to cancel out any downtime.

Rubb worked closely with Nifco’s Plant Engineering Manager, Jim Bell, to make sure the proposed structure was going to be the perfect solution for Nifco’s pallet storage needs.

There were several reasons why Nifco went with Rubb. The building's design and manufacturing showed that it was built with longevity in mind. The building is easily adaptable to accommodate accessories needed for the building to perform. Rubb is local to us in the North East, and like Rubb, Nifco is a firm believer of supporting local business.
