A British manufacturer of steel storage products - cantilever racking, vertical racking, coil racking, stillages and pallets, seeks distributors and agents with existing routes into industry, factories, warehousing, home improvement outlets, gardening products outlets etc. where this type of racking is a requirement.
An English manufacturer of racking systems - cantilever racking, vertical racking, coil racking, stillages and pallets, already has well-established distribution agreements in the UK, Ireland and Sweden. As part of its expansion plans, the company now seeks further distribution and agency agreements with distributors and agents, having existing routes into industry, factories, warehousing, home improvement outlets, gardening products outlets etc. where this type of racking is required. All the racking is manufactured to EN 1090 from hot rolled mild certificated steel with a painted or galvanised finish. Cantilever racking can be supplied with cladding to the rear. Canopies are also available. The racking is supplied as a "flat pack" complete with all fixings and an electronic assembly manual in English with pictograms. With an in-house design and drawing service, the company is able to manufacture racking solutions specific to end user needs which can be delivered either to the distributor or the end user. With many years' experience, the design team are able to offer storage solutions, even if the end user is not absolutely sure what is required. The agency agreement sought would be for a "middle man" to discuss storage needs with a customer which would be passed onto the design team in the UK. The distribution service would deal mainly with the "off the shelf" solutions offered by the company to the markets detailed above.
Innovations and advantages

Cantilever racking; - The back plate doesn't protrude above the racking arms, allowing the product to be pushed back to the column without damage. - All columns are punched on both sides allowing easy reconfiguration. - All racking is designed specifically to end user needs and is stand-alone on a suitable concrete pad or floor. - The racking components can be maintained/repaired without the need to dismantle the structure e.g. changing the base. If the English language proves difficult, the company is able to work solely from CAD drawings.

A commercial agency and/or distribution agreement with a partner having existing routes into industry, factories, warehousing, home improvement outlets, gardening products outlets etc. The agent would act as a "middle man", ideally being able to discuss the storage requirements with the customer and then pass these details onto the UK design team, who would in their turn offer a storage solution either directly to the customer or through the agent. The distribution service would be the sale of "off the shelf" storage solutions directly to the markets detailed above.
