Industrial operations require industrial equipment like Montel's SAFERAK® 32P and SAFERAK® 60P heavy-duty powered mobile racking systems.
Miller Industries is a leading name in high-performance car carrier manufacturing and reliable towing services, but somewhere along the line their operations began to suffer from an organizational breakdown.
Because of all the products that Miller offers and the services they render, Miller spread its operation over five off-site warehouses of around 52,000 square feet total. The business even used its own tow trucks to transport materials and equipment between different locations, which cost it big in transportation expenses, extra wear and tear on its vehicles, and precious time its employees and technicians preferred to give back to their customers.
There had to be a better way. Could Miller Industries meet its goal of reducing its warehouse space and preserving its reputation as home to the hardest-working professionals in the industry? Never say never when you have Montel design your storage solutions.
Industrial operations require industrial equipment. No prefabricated racking here! Montel recommended three SAFERAK 32Ps and one SAFERAK 60P heavy-duty powered mobile racking systems with literally tons of storage capacity built into each rack.
Safety and reliability are important to Miller. (What else would you expect from a tow truck manufacturer and service provider?) So when it came time to select powered mobile racking systems, they required storage equipment that did more than drastically reduce their storage footprint with the press of a button—as cool as that may be!
For added safety, Montel installed in-aisle emergency stop buttons, high-visibility strobe lights, and audible buzzers on each SAFERAK carriage. And to prevent downtime in case of a power outage, each system included mechanisms for opening the aisles manually using ratchets. Even without power, Miller could still serve its customers around the clock.
Thanks to careful planning and collaboration between teams at Montel and Miller Industries, Miller was able to decrease its storage footprint to 25,000 square feet. Consequently, they can now keep all their winches, valves, hosing, and other materials at a single facility. No more unnecessary off-site storage or costly trips between locations.
Miller Industries maximized their space and streamlined their processes with Montel Mobile Racking
Miller Industries is a leading name in high-performance car carrier manufacturing and reliable towing services. With all their product and services, Miller had to spread its operation over five off-site warehouses of around 52,000 square feet total. Now, with Montel's heavy-duty powered mobile rack systems SAFERAK® 32P AND SAFERAK®, Miller was able to decrease its storage footprint to 25,000 square feet, and bring all their product back in-house. Watch the video to see even more benefits Miller Industries got from making the switch to mobile racking systems.
"After implementing the Montel SAFERAK 30P and SAFERAK 60P we have seen several benefits. We have actually been able to eliminate an entire 52,000sq ft facility. By doing that we were able to bring all that product back in-house."
