Charleston, SC – September 12, 2018 – FLEXSPACE announced the completion of the second Poweracks installation in less than a year at Smith Corona’s Ohio manufacturing and distribution facility. The second Poweracks, high-density mobile racking system, will double the storage capacity of the original 2017 Poweracks installation. The second Poweracks installation was completed within four weeks with minimal business interruption.
The FLEXSPACE team again demonstrates with the second installation of Poweracks at Smith Corona’s existing facility the ability to modify an existing warehouse space with its high-density mobile storage system. “Increasing storage capacity with our semi-automated, high-density Poweracks system can easily and relatively quickly be accomplished in existing facilities,” says Todd Jessup, principal, FLEXSPACE. “In this historic downtown location, Smith Corona has relied on Poweracks to continue to meet its growing business and storage needs without moving its operations and people”
FLEXSPACE will be exhibiting at PACK EXPO INTERNATIONAL co-located with HEALTHCARE PACKAGING EXPO, booth E-9032, taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago; October 14-17, 2018. PACK EXPO INTERNATIONAL is indisputably the year’s most comprehensive packaging event on the continent—and the one that powers innovation like no other.
“PACK EXPO is where we first met the Smith Corona team,” continues Jessup. “PACK EXPO provides us with the unique opportunity to present how high-density storage solutions like Poweracks and our pallet shuttle, Ranger can positively impact their businesses with greater revenue potential, decreased operational and labor costs, and overall increased efficiencies.”
