Sylvain Coallier of Napierville, Quebec, Canada, runs his own wholesale produce distribution company. When the business outgrew his old facility, he set out to find a metal building company that strives to meet his same standards of quality and understanding each customer’s particular needs. What he also needed was a company that had experience in efficiently designing a steel warehouse building for his current needs while keeping his options open to expand in the future, so he called Ironbuilt Steel Buildings.
One of Sylvain’s main concerns for his new facility was having enough room to freely move the produce on pallets to the trucks waiting to be loaded without going outside of the building. Ironbuilt’s simple clear span, bolt together design and experience with numerous trucking companies made this not much of a concern at all. Sylvain’s building was easily designed to incorporate multiple loading bays for his trucks and ample room on his warehouse floor to store his product and operate forklifts.
The way the forklift operators are now able to weave in and around pallets, pick them up and speed over to the loading bays with trucks waiting to be loaded is an incredible sight. They almost look like they do it for fun. It’s easy to see they enjoy and make use of all the room they have now in their new Ironbuilt warehouse steel building.
Not content with simply purchasing a preengineered building, Sylvain wanted to erect it himself. With Ironbuilt’s customer service and contractor services team waiting to help, he was ready to tackle it. As it turns out, Sylvain did not need much help at all. He told us, “I’m really satisfied with it. The building was easy to put up,” and later adding, “We didn’t have any problems as far as service and quality of product. Everything was really nice.”
Sylvain was so pleased with his warehouse building that he told us, “I recommend Ironbuilt to anyone that would need a warehouse or any kind of building.”
In 2010 Sylvain’s business expanded and he came back and increased his facility with a 76’x40’ addition to his original building.
