Mobile Parts Department

Rocky Mountain Equipment wanted to create an on-site service and repair solution for their heavy duty equipment out in the field. They were looking to have a mobile trailer unit that would bring parts, tools and equipment where it was needed most. It would essentially be a mobile parts department. Safety, Organization, Security and Affordability were all requirements that had to be met for the system to achieve their goals.


Husqvarna Calgary

When Husqvarna opened a new location in Calgary, they contacted McLennan & Company to supply shelving and racking to their warehouse. A Storage Expert from McLennan & Company met with the owner, Shawn, and asked questions about how the new location would operate. Shawn explained how they needed to control inventory and create a secure area for contractors and visitors to enter the building. Shawn needed some areas picked and loaded by forklift, others to store tiny nuts, bolts and other inventory, and they had a little of everything in between.


Environmental Consulting

A local environmental consulting firm had moved into a new building in Calgary’s upstart Quarry Park commercial neighbourhood. They required a storage solution for their service vehicle bays. The variety of what they needed to store posed a challenge: could one system store work equipment, tools, supplies, hard hats, coveralls, boots, and tires for snow and summer? Some of the tools were valuable and posed a shrinkage risk, while other materials posed safety risks to employees. They needed to organize to eliminate tripping hazards, store their stuff, and keep enough space for two work vehicles to be in the bay at once.


Powerhouse Workspace

Every winter, an automotive dealership faces the same problem. They have to stock enough winter tires for the first snowfall of the year, or they miss out on a very profitable season because they simply can’t meet demand. They had limited space, and expanding the storage area was far too costly. Storing off site didn’t provide the accessibility their customers wanted, and affected their installation workflow.


University of Saskatchewan

The University of Saskatchewan was undertaking renovations to improve their facility, and they needed to make the best use of the renewed space. The plan was to condense multiple laboratory storage rooms into a centralized location, making the storage more efficient, accessible, and more secure. The nature of what was being stored, lab supplies, tools, gear, and more, demanded that any mobile system have controlled speed and compacted aisle size.


City of Calgary Security

The City of Calgary Corporate Security is part of the Law Department of the municipality. Sensitive information must be kept strictly confidential, but the space they had dedicated to filing was running out as the department and operations grew. A mobile file storage system was considered, but the sensitive documents inside demanded the system would meet Federal Security & Fire Protection Design requirements? Could access be restricted while still allowing water to flow in to meet code? Was mobilizing the files even possible?
