Over the years Hi Level has positioned itself as one of Europe’s leading mezzanine flooring specialists, helping to supply flooring to businesses across the retail, warehousing and production sectors. But what are some of the common reasons why businesses approach us to install mezzanine flooring and what solutions does it provide?
They’ve outgrown their facilities
Year on year growth is something that everyone hopes for and looks forward to. But when it happens you may feel unprepared and unsure as to how best to manage it. A good business manager will look at how they are set up for growth and will review every aspect of their operations, from staffing to processes and location. Often at the end of this they will come to the realisation that they need to move to larger premises. Unfortunately, with relocation comes lots of added costs and the type of property that they need might not be available or is simply too expensive. In addition to this, moving to pastures new can mean upset for your staff and your customers and also a costly period of downtime while you migrate your business elsewhere.
They want their business to be more efficient
In today’s highly competitive market it’s vital to be constantly improving the way your business operates. Failing to uncover these problems and missing opportunities to ‘work smarter’ can leave you constantly chasing the coattails of your competition. By regularly talking to their staff and reviewing operations, business owners will often discover that there is a need to make significant changes to their premises that will foster growth.
They don’t want to expand too fast
Another reason that companies opt for mezzanine floors is that they don’t want to expand too quickly. For businesses that are experiencing a period of growth for the first time, there is a legitimately held fear that the ‘bubble’ might burst at any moment, so the idea of relocating to expand their business and the higher costs that it involves seems like a big risk. They want their business to be set up to maintain both busy periods and quiet periods but don’t want to get ahead of themselves and take a big financial risk.
How mezzanine floors can help
Mezzanine floors provide a solution to all three of these problems. They help businesses to expand from within, improve their efficiencies and become adaptable to shifting sales and changing markets.
A mezzanine floor allows you to double your floor space and make the most of overhead space that would normally be wasted. This space can be used for whatever purpose your business requires, everything from holding more stock, creating an office space or staff room, providing extra seating for customers or hosting new machinery and production lines. It can also be an effective way to reorganise your premises and create a space which is more productive and more competitive.
Whereas relocating a business to a new premises can be time heavy, expensive and risky, installing a mezzanine floor is cost effective, takes very little time and can be constructed in a way that has little to no impact on your day to day operations. What’s more a mezzanine floor can be dismantled at any time and taken with you to a new site should you later decide to relocate.
