Leading European tank design and manufacturing company, Balmoral Tanks, has become one of the latest organisations to streamline and control its loading operation with the addition of bespoke loading dock equipment, designed and manufactured by Thorworld Industries.
The global water, wastewater and processing storage solution specialist, which is a division of Balmoral Group Holdings Ltd., is based in Thurnscoe, South Yorkshire, and is an established authority in the creation of sectional and cylindrical tanks, manufactured using a basis of either steel or concrete, and constructed using in the region of up to 400 tank sheets which can be erected in situ.
Serving client sectors including civil engineering, fire-fighting, potable/non-potable water, anaerobic digestion, biofuel, biomass, wastewater treatment, desalination and drainage, Balmoral Tanks has become a reputable name in its field, having proved itself committed to operating at the very highest levels of health and safety, and through ensuring best practice, always.
The company’s level of customer care, reinforced by its manufacturing assets, has led to significant growth in recent years, and consequently, a move to extensive, purpose-built premises. The new site has been designed to be inclusive of a loading dock area, creating the opportunity to discontinue the company’s need, and considerable associated costs, of involving a thirdparty loading provider, as Balmoral Tank’s Operation’s Director, Bryan Bentley explains:
“Prior to the site relocation, we’d spent in the region of £125,000 over an 12-month period on third party loading services. Keen to reduce these transport loading costs, we ensured the design of our new premises would include space for a loading operation.
“Having worked in the logistics sector for many years, I was familiar with Thorworld Industries and had brought the company’s equipment into play on several occasions in the past.”
Impressed with the firm’s equipment quality, functionality and safety standards, Bryan had no hesitation in calling upon Thorworld again, to have his customer requirements met by the manufacturer’s sales agent, Darmax Ltd.
