Fastenal’s client, Nikon, needed some enclosed spaces that could be used for isolating various light-sensitive components from the rest of the workspace in their facility. Several solutions were considered such as plastic carports lined with light-absorbing foam as with drywall and ceiling, but the modular enclosure solution presented by Allied Modular became the solution of choice due to the advantages of minimal engineering, ready availability, and system flexibility . Using Allied Modular’s modular building solution (and the accompanying cost-effectiveness and favorable lead time of such a solution), Fastenal was able to secure the sale and offer Nikon a solution to suit their needs.
Allied Modular’s solution that Fastenal was able to sell consisted of two modular enclosures that would utilize an existing wall, which maximized space and was cost-efficient. These enclosures would effectively isolate the necessary components in Nikon’s facility. There were many advantages to installing a modular system: the building was flexible and could easily be relocated or altered in the future. The system required minimal engineering, so costs could be cut, and more importantly, cost Nikon a minimal amount of downtime due to efficient and non-invasive construction.
Thanks to the excellent support and communication Allied Modular provided for Fastenal and the client, Fastenal was able to make a sale with Nikon, as well as build support for a potential 10+ additional buildings at other Nikon facilities worldwide, leading to another great relationship with a client and additional sales. Nikon in turn was provided with quality buildings to conduct business in.
