Being a member of the UPN Pallet Network, Truckwrights' vehicles are dedicated to the pallet operation and are on the road every day, collecting the individual and small quantity pallets which will then be consolidated and loaded onto one of their double deck trailers ready for their onward journey for delivery- resulting in a very busy and current site.

Emergency requirement for temporary retail store

On the 2nd February the Copdock Country Store were targeted in a ram-raid and arson attack. Having previously met Aganto at a trade exhibition HG Gladwell contacted Aganto on the 9th February requesting an idea of specification, price and lead times for an emergency temporary retail store. By the 16th February, following some refining of the original specification and a site survey, the finalised temporary building proposal consisted of a 15m wide by 20m long building that included an eave height of 5.2m and a 5m canopy over the front of the building.

Fast delivery of a temporary building

“Aganto are clearly experienced in providing the emergency response that was so vital in getting our business back up and running. From that first initial enquiry they worked with us at a rapid speed that in no way affected the quality of service or product that was provided. The temporary retail store, which we began trading from on the 26th March, has become quite a PR story on our website and in the local press as it was officially opened by the winners of the BBC program “A Farmers Life For Me”! We are also running a 10% discount from the temporary store for the month of April to show our customers that, thanks to Aganto, its business as usual at Copdock Mill!”
