Metal freezer cabinets repaired for Aldi supermarket
The conversion of an existing retail unit in Bedford to accommodate a new supermarket store has led to Plastic Surgeon not only winning business with an important new client, but also the repair specialist’s finishers being presented with some unusual challenges.
The lead consultant and principal contractor on the Bedford contract was faced with a short programme period and the need to utilize a variety of chiller and refrigeration units transferred from another of the supermarket’s stores. Unfortunately, though, some of these had been damaged when they were removed and required remedial work in order to meet hygiene as well as aesthetic requirements.
As the building work progressed towards a conclusion, the architect on site put forward the Plastic Surgeon as a leading specialist in its field able to carry out the necessary repairs to the freezers, chillers and associated shelving units.
Different areas of damage to the freezer casings – ranging from minor dents to scrapes and dents up to six feet long – were filled, smoothed and then carefully re-sprayed to achieve an exact colour match. In the case of the chillers the main task concerned scratches on the shelving. When the contractor and the client saw the quality of finish that Plastic Surgeon was able to achieve, they gave the go ahead for all of them to be recoated. The finishers involved set up a temporary spray booth in the store’s goods yard for a total of 90 shelves to be taken out and returned to pristine condition.
The customers were delighted with the repairs and will be calling in Plastic Surgeon for any future problems.
