A central Alberta auto dealership needed more space to devote to profitable areas of their business like service and shop bays; however expansion was a costly venture that would eat up inventory space that was already at capacity. The sheer volume of parts and inventory was tough to control and access, creating a concern for security, inventory damage, and employee safety.
Foothills Systems’ Industrial Storage expert worked with the dealership to create a vertical lift storage solution; taking advantage of the dealership’s unused vertical space. The system addressed all three issues they were facing. First, it saved about 60% of the floor space so they could expand their service area. It also manages inventory with easy-to-use software, and has an ergonomically friendly access window. The storage was compacted, inventory secured, and employee safety improved.
