Avanta UK Ltd – The Leeds based Storage Equipment and Interior Fit Out Specialist is celebrating 20 years of incorporation.

Formed in 2000 following the merger of two West Yorkshire based businesses – Castleford’s Abacus Storage and Bradford’s Pennine Storage, the new business relocated to the vibrant Northern Powerhouse of Leeds.

Initially the company specialized in the design, supply and installation of pallet racking, shelving, mezzanine floors, partitions and associated construction systems.  It held stocks of storage bins, tubes and angles and had a steady flow of regular customers ordering through the Avanta catalogues.

Twenty years on, Avanta has a £15 million turnover and is working on large scale projects. Today their client base is diverse ranging from Next, Jet2, Mclaren, Boohoo, Redbull, Arrow XL, End Clothing and many more throughout the UK.

Strong relationships built over the years with manufacturing and supply partners has enabled the company to provide a full turnkey solution (including electrical and mechanical works). In essence, Avanta is a one stop shop for multi-site clients.

In the past twenty years the company has maintained steady growth even during periods of economic recession… And now as we see growth in Internet retail, an increase in the number of new warehouse builds / re-organisation and changing technologies the Senior Management Team at Avanta are looking forward to the next twenty years.

Whether it’s about creating the right workplace environment for robot picking or providing returns shelving with thousands of locations for Internet retailers, the company has developed many solutions. Over the last twenty years it has invested heavily (both time and money), working with end-users to maximise their workspace and productivity. Good workspace management solutions are about good relationships – from end-user to architect / specifier. It’s about creating a partnership not just hiring a supplier.

With ISO9001, SafeContractor, Constructionline and CHAS accreditations alongside the relevant insurances the company is well equipped to undertake large scale projects that require CDM.  Avanta has built an experienced team of trained professionals and holds an enviable reputation across the sector.

Andrew Chipp, Director commented “We have come a long way in the last 20 years and there is a lot more to come.  It is reassuring that we have a diverse selection of regular customers who have grown with us and keep coming back to Avanta on a regular basis. We have invested heavily in our internal systems and our marketing effort over the years to help future proof the business.”

David Beattie, Director commented “We have delivered thousands of projects over the last 20 years and we are involved in some prestigious works currently including creating structures for robots and full turnkey projects. These are exciting times.”
