Featured Client: Putco

If you’re looking to spice up your ride, look no further than Putco.

When Putco contacted SJF, they were looking for a lot of racking at a savings. They needed to fill a new 127,000 sq. ft. facility so used equipment was definitely on their radar. SJF had just secured two large used inventories that could have filled PUTCO’s needs but with new pricing being very competitive and not subject to availability issues, they turned to new. SJF supplied new Mecalux Interlake Pallet Racks and MECO Cantilever racks as well as the installation while meeting PUTCO’s timeline and pricing requirements. Jason Deiter was the solutions specialist on this project.

Huge Million Dollar Rack Sale in Progress

SJF today announced the completion of the 3rd major pallet rack tear down and removal project this week. In the past 60 days SJF has acquired, removed and shipped in excess of over 3000 pallet rack uprights and 40,000 used pallet rack beams from several large distribution centers spanning 3 different states.

Pallet Rack Uprights

A Field of Uprights

Since the 1st of the year, SJF has been on a pallet rack buying spree for its clients and for inventory. National acquisitions manager Sam Sterner has been traveling nonstop during January. Sam has been the go to man on all of the recent projects. He is personally overseeing the removal, banding, loading and transportation of all the equipment to SJF’s main warehouse facility in MN.

With another 25 trailer loads of equipment currently in transit to MN, the project was made even more challenging this week with temps dropping in the -25 below 0 range in Minnesota this week.

As 2014 gets under way, 42” uprights and 96″ beams continue to be in large demand from clients looking for good, clean, used warehouse storage racks. The recent acquisitions of these sizes position SJF as a key supplier in the national used pallet rack equipment market.
