A customer of one of our clients required a small parts secure storage solution for their machine components, which could incorporate an enclosed assembly area. Their customer wanted to minimise the amount of floor space taken up by the project in their new warehouse but maximise the storage capacity as they required most of the floor space for tooling machinery.
Working closely with our trade partner, Outracking set to work building a bespoke two-tier structure. This was to include a suspended walkway with an over and under gate to allow pallets to be loaded directly on to the upper tier. On the ground floor there was a partitioned work arear with lockable doors and a sliding gate for lower pallet access. It was critical to the customer that this was done to a stringent time scale as they needed to be operational very quickly. One of the most important things identified with the build was how the area was to be kept clean and with minimal disruption to the customer as they started to bring sensitive equipment in. A costing and detailed time plan was agreed and then it was straight to it. The job ended with a very satisfied customer and trade associate.
One of OutRacking’s repeat customers from the Automotive Industry had a new piece of machinery delivered from Europe. It was then realised that this machine would encroach on their storage area and that a section of the roll storage system needed to be moved. This could only be done in the warehouse down-time at the weekend. The client’s system had some noticeable repairs, which would not pass a statutory inspection and they needed all this work to be finished by the end of the same week.
Outracking worked closely with the production team to solve the problem by reallocating parts of the existing system so that parts could be used for repairs, whilst ensuring they had the space they needed. Outracking supplied a team to work over the weekend, firstly to take down the racking structure and then make the necessary repairs. Without disrupting the other teams putting the machine in, our team moved the racking around and re-erected it at its new location. This was all done in time to ensure that production was not disrupted.
The lease of an Outracking customer, which operates as an Amazon based company, had come to an end and they made the decision that it was time to move to a bigger location. They wanted to use their existing shelving but wanted to turn it into a two tier structure to make operations easier.They also needed a lot more of the same shelving system to fill a much larger warehouse but had quite a small budget for such a large project. It was also necessary for the customer to keep operational.
By putting together a detailed plan with technical drawings, we were able to see how their existing system could be integrated to allow for the main changes that were needed. By identifying their system and supplying the additional materials, we were able to stay under budget. Plans were laid out so that half of the warehouse could remain operational, whilst the racking in the other half could be moved. Outracking assisted in all aspects of the company’s move including transporting of stock, electrical services and the dilapidation.
One of our trade associates that supplies racking to end customers had taken on a large job that needed doing at the same time as another project. This left them without a suitably qualified team that could get the project done in time to keep their customer happy. The job was on the south coast and would require a team to work away.
Working under their banner and wearing their uniforms (High Vis vests) with their logo we undertook the project. Outracking supplied the required installation team to do the project and sourced suitable accommodation for its duration. A pre-agreed trade price was established and within a few days the project was quickly underway. The project was completed in the allotted time frame and a high level of safe working practices were followed, leaving the racking supplier with a happy customer who is sure to use them again.
