The requirements of a warehouse may change many times over the course of its life. More often than not, the configuration of the space will meet the original needs, but will no longer be efficient when the requirements change. The end user may need to store more product or equipment, but the current space won’t allow for it. Unfortunately this is a scenario that’s more common than people would like. Luckily, this is the problem American Warehouse Systems solves best.
We recently did work for a National Guard unit that was experiencing a mission change that effected their warehouse storage needs. Their warehouse was very well organized and maintained and included shelving, pallet rack, wire enclosures, modular offices and an industrial steel mezzanine. Due to some projects that were going on around the base, they needed to be able to store more materials in the warehouse, but couldn’t make it happen with their existing layout. Fortunately they knew what to do to solve their problem; they contacted American Warehouse Systems.
Our highly talented staff worked with the government end-user to design an updated and efficient material handling system that could not only meet their current needs but also be flexible enough for future changes. Obsolete equipment was removed and replaced, and existing structures were rearranged to create a more effective layout. We also installed several new space saving storage solutions, which greatly increased their capacity to store material. We were able to accommodate their normal day-to-day operations and work around their schedules to ensure the highest levels of productivity for everyone.
While this project is certainly more complicated than implementing a new system within an empty warehouse, it presents the type of challenge that American Warehouse Systems loves to take on head first.
