Established in 1968, Piper boats is a family run business specialising in the design and build of fine steel boats for the leisure and residential markets
Requirement for increased workshop space
With demand for the Wide beam boats increasing the company needed more space to cope with the extra orders as well as the larger style of boat. It was decided a self-contained facility for applying the final top coat of paint would free up the much needed space in the main workshops as well as cut down on dust getting into the paint.
Temporary building hire
Piper Boats decided to hire a temporary boat workshop from Aganto for an initial twelve month period. This was long enough to help them cope with the extra demand before they were able to carry out a more permanent expansion project on the site. The building supplied was 10m wide by 20m long and 4.2m high to the eave. To allow easy access for the large boats the building was fitted with PVC doors which can be easily pulled open and then shut to provide the right dust free environment whilst the painting was carried out.
Flexible temporary building hire
It was essential Piper Boats was able get the additional space quickly so they could meet the increased demand and not let customers down. Andrea Piper commented.
“Our success is built on supplying boats manufactured and finished to a superior quality and delivered with the professional and personal service which is so unique to Piper Boats. As such it was crucial we got the right space, delivered quickly and efficiency to ensure productivity could increase and the additional orders fulfilled.
"Not only did Aganto meet all these requirements but they installed the building in a matter of days without disrupting our current operation. The flexibility of the hire contract means we can keep the building until we are ready to start on our permanent expansion program and then off-hire it back to Aganto.”
