31.5 Meter High Rack Clad Building is a SA First!
The first clad rack building locally designed, engineered and manufactured is shooting up in Limbro Park, Johannesburg and attracting considerable attention.
The Universal Storage Systems project was commissioned by UTI Pharma in conjunction with LGA Logistics’ Consultants and will be for the storage of pharmaceuticals. When completed the clad rack building, just off London Rd, will be 138 m long, 45 m wide and 31,5 m high and it will hold more than 38 000 pallets.
Rack Clad Warehouse South Africa 2012 Elaborating on the proudly South African project, Universal’s sales director Jan Breytenbach is quick to emphasize that the warehouse must meet the exceptionally stringent standards set for storing medicines.
“Our relationship with UTI Pharma dates back to the 90 s when they traded as IHD, we supplied the racking for the warehouse Limbro Park. Later we were involved with a new warehouse in Long meadow in 2006 and also their branches in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban. It’s been a great relationship and over 21 years we have come to fully understand that our client has to service the storage needs of many leading pharmaceutical companies while ensuring that patients always get the original quality medicine they need, when and where they need it.”
