Becton Dickenson – Custom 12 Drum Store

The clients requirements

After our technical sales manager Ken Kelly met with Mr. James Hurley of BD Life Sciences where a brief of the project was presented. The project required a drum store to accommodate 12 No. 200L drums of different waste product to be stored externally. The waste product would be dispensed into the drums and await collection from the waste recycling company. The store was required to be bunded, well ventilated and easily accessible by forklift and single depth. The store was to be fully lockable and vandal proof. Easy access for personnel on site was required as the waste is often dispensed from smaller drums using a funnel.

“On the delivery of our recent Chemstore unit, working with Ken on this design was very efficient from the start straight through to the finish. As we only had a visual of what we were looking for, Ken and his design team at Chemstore were a pleasure to deal with. The plans that were drawn up for us were exactly what we required, any changes requested from our side were completed without a fuss. The delivery was on time and the unit itself far exceeded our expectations. I couldn’t recommend Chemstore enough and would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future.”
