As internet retailers become an increasingly popular source for consumer goods, the warehouse space needed to store retailer supplies is also growing rapidly.
Today, the e-commerce industry makes up between 20-22 percent of new industrial leases in North America. That number has grown dramatically from less than 5 percent just a few years ago. In fact, an additional 782 million square feet of warehouse space is expected to hit the market by the end of 2019.
Metl-Span insulated metal panels (IMPs) offer a perfect solution for this growing market. Metl-Span IMPs feature ideal insulation capabilities thanks to a Class A polyurethane core that keeps the building and its contents in peak condition. Metl-Span IMPs also help to keep pace with the rapidly expanding warehouse market by fast-tracking the construction process because they’re designed for easy and efficient installation.
