Project Description

The Challenge

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.

The Solution

Our expert was careful to understand Shawn’s unique mix of needs, and recommended a complete solution of work benches, steel shelving, riveted Shelving, and pallet racking. The workbenches are stationed at the warehouse shipping entrance, stopping drivers and contractors from entering. The metal shelving was planned behind the benches for quick access to small parts in the parts drawers, and was outfitted with a steel back panel to block visual access to valuable equipment. The lighter equipment is stored on riveted shelving which offers access from all sides. Racking lines the opposite wall for larger and heavier forklift loaded inventory. The variety of products available from McLennan & Company, combined with our expertise, made this a one stop shop solution that Shawn is very happy with.
