Wiri, Auckland
With a nationwide repeat customer base, SmartShelters are a key player in this industry as they look to tailor their products and services to the needs of their clients. With a diverse range of customers from DOC to movie productions, dairy farms to drilling projects, this company helps other businesses do their business better. The importance of a partner who could deliver a tailored solution to accompany their innovative designs. An understood the importance of the accuracy with product was key. This chosen partner was FDG, who pride themselves on offering workable solutions that improve productivity and avoid costly disruptions. This required FDG to work with both bespoke customer requirements and the wide selection of shelter types within their standard range. FDG took on this challenge and created a pre-packed kit solution that combines all the components (excluding fabric and steel framing) required to put the shelter together. FDG took on the responsibility of sourcing all tapes and ratchets including their own fastening range, giving SmartShelters the array of components required.
