Featured Client: Central McGowan

Central McGowan, Inc. is a leading distributor of welding and industrial equipment, supplies, abrasives, safety equipment, automation and robotics. Serving industrial, medical, specialty, and beverage companies for over 60 years, Central McGowan maintains a commitment to provide high quality and cost effective solutions to clients in MN and beyond.

For several years, Central McGowan has relied on SJF  to prioritize efficiency and functionality in their ever evolving warehouse design. The latest project utilized a smaller floor space with higher ceilings. With less floor space, comes the challenge of keeping enough room between racks to operate a forklift while still getting the most storage out of the pallet rack system. SJF delivered uprights that fit the needs as well as assisting in planning a custom layout to optimize the space requirements. SJF also filled the order in a short amount of time by cutting down used beam material to make standard 8 foot beams that looked brand new, which also reduced the price.

Featured Client: Control Concepts

Control Concepts, Inc. designs & manufactures precision SCR power controllers for industrial applications.

From the Customer:

In early 2012, we were moving into a new facility with our new owner. We decided to get a fresh start and purchase pallet racking and work benches instead of trying to teardown and reset our old mismatched pallet racking. Most of our controllers are red & black, so we decided to have our work benches & pallet racking painted to match. We also decided to take advantage of our new higher ceiling by using pallet racking not only for our pallet storage, but also for all of our inventory storage. Even though our new building is only 1,000 sq ft larger, we gained a lot of floor space by going vertical.
