Store expansion meets growth in plastic panel sales – November 2016

Due to increased demand for Paneltim by pig farmers, Quality Equipment has extended its storage area by 220m² (2368 sq ft) at its Woolpit, Suffolk, base.

This will enable the company to stock an extra 5,000m² (53,819 sq ft) of the plastic panel, widely used in piggeries, particularly for pen division and gates. It offers substantial benefits in terms of strength and hygiene over many traditional materials.


Quality Equipment is the main UK distributor for Paneltim and has specialist cutting and welding equipment, enabling it to supply panels to individual requirements where non-standard sizes are necessary.

“The extension, built by our own construction division, will enable us to stock both a greater variety and quantity of Paneltim,” commented QE Director Graham Baker.
