Solus Decor Renovation and Relocation

Hemi Outdoor Fire Pit Solus

Solus Decor Relocation

 

After many happy years at 1445 Powell Street in Vancouver we are relocating to a much larger facility at 109 Braid Street with a mix of emotions. We have many happy memories from Powell Street looking back at what we have achieved and seeing how the fire and water features have developed.  However, we are hugely excited about 2017 and the additional space at Powell Street allowing the team to have greater space and efficiency for the manufacture of our fire and water features.  All our products are made from hand cast concrete, a skilled technique requiring specialist equipment and an accomplished team to manage all aspects of the processes.

The Renovation of the new facility has been spearheaded by our General Manager Gam Yeo who has given the same attention to the renovation and relocation as he does with our fire and water features on a day to day basis.  The relocation and greater space has enabled us to invest in new equipment, which in most cases have been custom made for Solus Decor products.

Our custom hopper above is for pouring concrete, this hopper will significantly increase our efficiency in pouring. It can hold enough concrete for up to four 36’’ Hemi Fire Bowls, whilst providing our pouring team with much improved ergonomics.

One of the big changes in the new facility is the new push rack system, but what are the benefits of a push rack system?

 

 

New push rack system

 

  • Exceptional use of space, eliminating unnecessary aisles – good use of space is good, green thinking!
  • Allows for both selectivity and dense storage
  • More picking face locations
  • Fewer moving mechanical parts
  • Accommodates all pallet sizes
  • Allows us to rack, cure and store 560 units in a footprint of 40 feet x 70 feet

 

It’s safe to say we are looking forward to an exciting 2017 in a new location, working with our customers on their own renovation projects.

We helped WARM UP the Bachelorette

bachelorette-eha-36When Solus Decor was approached to help enhance the setting of the Bachelorette Canada for the premier episode… we jumped at the opportunity. Knowing that the series of the Bachelor / Bachelorette is hugely popular and has a solid fan base, we couldn’t resist lending some fire pits for the “one-on-one” conversations. We think you’ll agree that our beautiful 36″ Elevated Halo and 26″ Hemi add to the gorgeous surroundings where the opening night cocktail party was held.

With the help of our Elevated Halo, bachelorette Jasmine Lorimer warmed up to several of the newly introduced bachelors. Not only did the firepit help with the ambience, but no doubt it also helped keep Jasmine warm during the shoot in Vancouver’s chilly climate.

Pictured below, Vancouver’s own Kevin P. chats with Jasmine while enjoying the warmth of our 26″ Hemi.vancouverite-bachelor-kevin-p-with-jasmineAlthough you won’t see any more of our fire pits in upcoming episodes, you can enjoy the rest of The Bachelorette Canada on the WNetwork.
