Overview of building types

Herchenbach’s range of temporary warehouses and buildings covers all your needs. We will assist you in identifying the best type of building for application and time-frame. All our buildings are available for purchase or hire, and can usually be installed on site in just a few days.

All our buildings are German engineered and designed to maximize durability, quality and cost-efficiency. All British and European structural safety codes are fully met by our buildings. Herchenbach has been active since 1924, and our building range covers the simple canopy for logistics applications to fully insulated winter-proof warehouses for storing sensitive goods.
