How to Make Room for Corporate Growth
Would you believe that neither construction nor expansion was necessary to gain additional work space? It’s true, although there may be a lack of awareness as to what other options are available, or it could be that there’s just not enough time in a day to research them. Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel by collaborating with professional work-space evaluators. And best of all, some assessments are free of charge and come with a no obligation guarantee.
Professional surveyors can help recognize unused space and recommend solutions to utilize it for your company’s best return. Just imagine how your company may respond as you present them with alternative cost-saving solutions to their growth initiative. One space saving solution may provide a multitude of returns, such as this:
- Uncovering hidden floor space may open up new areas for production (or other revenue generating activities);
- Hiring more staff or automating such operations may increase productivity;
- An increase in productivity may lead to more product being sold and distributed;
- A rise in sales and product distribution can lead to greater revenue for the company.
For example, a variation for storing unused pallets may be 1) via stationary rack, 2) in a contained vertical pallet stacker, or 3) leaning up against the wall. Which one do you think takes up the least amount of footprint?
Another example is storage bins. No, it is not a bad game of tic-tac toe. In this picture, a red X marks each bin lacking full usage, and a green O shows the only bins full to the top. Bins can be a common culprit of unused floor space, especially when there are aisles upon aisles of them. Is there an alternative solution? Yes there is.
A full assessment including measurements of product and its surrounding areas, including available ceiling height, could result in the most cost and space saving recommendation of a vertical lift module (VLM) or carousel.
My suggestion to you is this –take a good look around your current facilities; look beyond what you normally see. Better yet, call in a professional – an outsider – who will evaluate it like a realtor does a house before putting it on the market. They may help open your eyes to unforeseen space saving capabilities. Like the old English proverb says,“Where there’s a will, there’s a way”.
