Custom fit-out for PaperlinX stays smooth
When PaperlinX consolidated its Scoresby and Preston paper merchanting sites in
Melbourne, the company called on Corporate Express for specialist expertise in
providing a smooth, custom fit-out.
PaperlinX undertook an ambitious project to bring together its Spicers Paper and
Dalton Paper businesses under one roof in a warehouse and office complex. The
first step was to actually expand the building from a 16,500 square metre
warehouse to a massive 21,800 square metres, and to expand the office space to
2,500 square metres to accommodate around 140 people.
PaperlinX spoke with three potential suppliers and settled on Corporate Express
because it could meet the requirements and fit the budget. PaperlinX is a major
supplier of paper to Corporate Express.
PaperlinX' Site Facility Manager, Rod Taylor said, "It was a very large project
and involved many different suppliers. Corporate Express worked well with our
other contractors including the team of electricians and cable layers and
completed the installation of the partitions and workstations within the tight
"When we briefed them initially, we already had the overall layout for the
office but Corporate Express provided some valuable input with specialist areas
like printing stations. They were even able to supply custom-built cupboards for
the purpose-built areas.
"Unlike many office fit-outs we weren't working with an empty space so we didn't
have the luxury of time. We were refitting and expanding our existing premises
so we had to shuffle staff around and make sure that our productivity wasn't
compromised. Therefore we needed an office fit-out supplier who could work with
our other contractors in a fairly tight timeframe," Site Facility Manager, Rod
