Responsible logistics firm Clipper Group are enforcing social distancing measures using Gala Tent Marquees. The tents are being hauled up for ensuring clean, partitioned single file entry and exit from the warehouse compound. The company were also so impressed with the structures that they added some Gala Tent marquees to ensure that Muslim employees could have additional safe and responsible prayer space, with the fast-approaching Holy holiday of Ramadan.
Clipper Group are just the latest logistics firm to purchase Gala Tent marquees to promote responsible distancing measures during the Covid 19 pandemic. DGP Logistics have also worked alongside construction firms to use Gala Tent’s commercial pop-up gazebos as rapidly deployed testing stations, and even online retail giant Amazon has gone to the company in search of structures strong enough to cover its employees at their Distribution Centres throughout the UK.
Gala Tent CEO Jason Mace said, “Logistics is an excessively busy industry, and they require robust commercial structures that are built to last. Gala Tent is renowned for never compromising when it comes to quality. I also believe that our Designed and Built in Britain trademark is also winning business for us right now”
Whilst the country’s economy grinds to a standstill, Gala Tent has been keeping itself busy during the pandemic, helping out on many of the country’s pop-up testing stations, from small medical practices in Lancashire to Farnham’s town hospital, up to supplying thirty six tents for the Nightingale Hospital at Birmingham’s NEC complex, which was recently officially opened by Prince William Duke of Cambridge. Besides the medical emergency tents, the company has also seen great progress in the home and garden market, with millions of homeowners turning to the garden as somewhere beyond the house to spend some time. Many of them have used Gala Tent structures to cover newly purchased hot tubs, and even as home gymnasiums and on the strength of this Gala Tent TV have also released a workout video turning their sturdy pop up gazebos, into a CrossFit unit.
Mace said, “The country is going mad for home fitness and being more creative as they find ways to keep fit. A Gala Shade Pro 50 is as good a workout frame as any, so why not? Throw in some leg weights which make great kettle bells and you’ve got a full routine. Think of the gym memberships you could save.”
Founded in 1999, Gala Tent has grown to sell over 15,000 tents and marquees each year, along with around 90,000 event accessories and furniture products in the UK.
In the UK, Gala Tent is a preferred supplier for organisations including the military, NHS, the South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, South Yorkshire Police Service, St John’s Ambulance and AA, as well as to thousands of homeworkers nationally.
