Accounting Firm Needs Storage Solution for Archive File Boxes
A large accounting firm, which provides auditing, tax, and consulting services to large corporations, moved its operations to a new facility. The warehouse for storing archival materials was much smaller, meaning the company would have to find a way to make better use of the space or resort to paying for additional off-site storage. By using high density wide span shelving, the company was able to store all their archive file boxes in the new warehouse.
High Density Wide Span Shelving is the Right Solution
Because the accounting firm was growing, they moved to the new facility. And while the new facility offered more space for additional employees and other functions, it had a much smaller warehouse space. Since the firm is required by law to keep certain information for a longer period of time, they rely on archive file boxes.
In total the company has over 51,000 archive file boxes. And in order to fit them all in the smaller space, they needed an innovative solution. Paying for off-site storage wasn’t a sound financial move nor was adding to the building. On the other hand, high density wide span shelving was the perfect storage system.
High Density Wide Span Shelving Saves Space and Increases Storage Capacity
Five high density systems, housing 206 bays of our wide span shelving were installed in the warehouse. Each bay is 11.5’ and designed specifically for the firm’s archive file boxes. Because the high density shelving compacts together and eliminates unnecessary access aisles, the form was able to get all 51,300 archive file boxes into the warehouse. And there is still room for future growth.
Without the high density wide span shelving, the firm would have needed a space 3 times larger. And since they didn’t have to build new or use off-site storage, the firm gained a quick return on their investment.
