Husky Rack & Wire Posted 12/21/2017
Husky Rack & Wire and Commercial Storage Systems worked as a team in the design and installation of a critical material storage and handling solution under a tight timeline for The Dixie Group Operations in Chattanooga, TN.
The Dixie Group needed to find a storage facility that would accommodate over 3.3 Million square yards of carpet. The company was on an extremely tight schedule in order to prevent any disruption to its order lead times, distribution operations and reputable customer service. The Dixie Group selected Commercial Storage Systems in Chatsworth, GA to lead the material storage and handling solution AND meet these challenging project goals.
The Dixie Group’s rack storage system was completed in 10-weeks. Husky Rack & Wire excelled in meeting product lead-time requirements and Commercial Storage Systems provided exceptional engineering design and project management. Materials arrived within 4-weeks with half the system being installed in 6-weeks and the facility operating at full capacity in 10-weeks.
Commercial Storage Systems evaluated the project requirements and partnered with Husky Rack & Wire to deliver an effective solution that would meet the strict schedule and deadline. The project material needs were substantial and added an additional challenge in Husky Rack & Wire meeting the compressed lead times to facilitate the installation schedule. Below is a list of a few project specifications.
- 8,000 linear feet of rack
- 28 feet tall
- 12 feet deep
- Corrugated metal decking
The project was a success in achieving The Dixie Group’s goals with recognition to all parties for their effective teamwork and dedication.
