When Coca-Cola of Northern New England (CCNNE) consolidated two of its distribution centers into a single location, maximizing space was essential to a seamless transition and efficient operations going forward. The existing Londonderry NH, facility had plenty of vertical space that was not being utilized and Bode Equipment was called in to make an assessment and recommendations on how to make the best use of it.
The Bode design team suggested the installation of a mezzanine storage system to capitalize on the available vertical space. A quicker and more cost effective solution than constructing an addition to the facility, the mezzanine easily accommodated the additional staff and product volume of the consolidated operations.
Bode provided all design and installation of the new mezzanine storage and assembly area. Because of the high volume of varied products and pallet sizes, nearly all of the rack installations for CCNNE required customization. To maximize cost savings Bode moved, reinstalled and modified where necessary the existing racking and equipment from the closing facility. Included in the installation was a new guard rail modular office system which provided plant supervisors with privacy and soundproofing for meetings and phone calls while still providing visibility of the facility’s operations.
“From design and fabrication to installation, Bode provided everything we needed to make this transition a success,” adds Coca-Cola’s Project Engineer. “I know that when it comes to quality service, quick response and attention to detail I can always count on Bode.”
Our work for Coca Cola of New England included the design and installation of a mezzanine for storage and assembly space, as well as a soundproof modular office to facilitate meetings and phone calls.
Guard rails and other safety systems were provided to meet company and OSHA safety requirements, and our team managed installation services as well as customization of rack storage systems to meet the needs of the new space.
