Business for some of us slows down in the holiday season and some of us are already on our winter breaks! This is a great time to organize and streamline the efficiency around your plant and warehouse.
So, itemize “organizing” in next year’s budget. Investing in specialized storage that is highly efficient for your particular product can create efficiencies that lead savings in both time and money. Not to mention increasing your safety substantially.
Look around your facility – do you have heavy slabs of stone or other large heavy slabs taking up valuable space and creating a handling hazard? Bluff’s A-Frame Slab Transport Rack is designed specifically to handle heavy slab material such as natural stone and provides a much-needed additional layer of safety for workers handling these slabs. Bluff A-Frames provide a secondary safety stop to the slabs when they are being separated for delivery, thereby significantly decreasing the risk to the workers handling them.Additionally, you can get the most storage in the least amount of space.
Organize your pipes or flat boards with Bluff’s Cantilever Racks – these don’t just free up floor space, they are also fully customizable to to increase your operational efficiencies. Best part – use them indoors or outdoors.
If you service the beer industry, organize your craft “sixer” kegs with our new keg flow racks. Not only is this a great storage system that keeps the kegs off the floors and opens up space, but it also helps make it easier to find what you’re looking for. It is a great handling tool innovatively designed to minimize worker injury. A worker can simply grab a keg from its more convenient ends and load it onto a pallet while the remaining stock rolls forward. To load the rack, the kegs are put in from the rear and roll gently to the front. Shallower racks can even be loaded from the front.
Move up! When you are really cramped for space in your warehouse, don’t go looking to expand your real estate horizontally, especially when you can do it vertically at a much lower cost. In keeping with its objective of increasing in-plant efficiency, space utilization and safety, Bluff Manufacturing offers mezzanines and stairways. They can be custom designed and built to meet your expansion/storage needs – whether you’re looking at 100 square feet or 25,000 square feet. A warehouse mezzanine is an ideal, economical solution for freeing up floor space while providing expanded storage capacity by clearing vertical spans up to 40 feet and load capacities up to 1,000 pounds per square foot. Eliminate the expense of moving to a new facility or leasing additional space by adding a freestanding mezzanine.
It’s always a great feeling to return to a fully organized and functioning workplace after a holiday rather than a chaotic, messy one. Think of how efficient and effective your new year will be! You’ll be off to a great start!
