Our favorite Metro Detroit beer distributor, Eastown, came to us last month with a major issue in their warehouse: Regulations stated that they were no longer allowed to stack pallets higher than 2 at a time. Due to this change, large amounts of vertical space in their 120,000 square foot warehouse was not being utilized. Because beer manufacturers have focused on saving on waste, packaging has become thinner and in turn, more fragile.

We developed a custom high density structural steel push back rack system which allowed for pallets to be stored safely and securely at a higher height. A gravity roller conveyor with the first-in, last-out picking system ensures fresh product will always be distributed to Metro Detroit, while drive-in tunnels for forklifts increase efficiency and save space. Now, more beer can be stored in their warehouse and still be accessed safely.  Take a look at how it turned out.

    Please contact me regarding a facility retro-fit project we are currently underway with. It presents opportunities for rack reconfiguration. It is taking our existing racking system and optimizing the layout based on our new facility design.
