A COMPANY in Huddersfield making portable offices has landed a second order from banking giant Lloyds TSB.
Volume Products Ltd, based at Colne Road, Chapel Hill, will provide private work areas, resource rooms and meeting areas for the bank’s Scottish Widows call centre in Edinburgh.
The deal follows Volume’s success in providing its Airea mobile office for a trial period at the Edinburgh site.
Airea can be assembled by two people in half an hour to provide a room complete with screens, desks and chairs, lighting, hidden power cabling and cabinets for photocopiers, printers, shredders, fax and post.
Volume managing director Mark Partridge said: “The response to our first installation was so positive that Lloyds TSB is now in the process of rolling the concept out to other floors in the same building.
“Office design is moving forward. It is now recognised that open plan environments need some degree of privacy for meetings, business conversations and quiet working.”
Lloyds TSB has commissioned Volume Products to help create private “break out” areas – by supplying screening and sliding doors to create areas where employees can relax.
