Merchandise Warehouses takes its operations to the next level with the help of Raymond cold storage solutions.
Merchandise Warehouse, a logistics provider of multi-temperature warehouse services, hasn’t stopped growing since its beginning as a 50,000-square-foot dry warehouse. An industry-wide shortage of cold storage facilities led the company to invest in cooler and freezer rooms in 1959, and now today the third-generation, family-owned warehouse has increased its facility size by eight times, with more than 400,000-square-feet of cooler and freezer space.
Yet while the company continued to excel, for years they relied on common warehouse operations. Traditional pallet racking was working, and as the old saying goes, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” However, continued growth was already pushing Merchandise Warehouse to its limit. The facility was busting at its seams with product, and the company’s customers were demanding even more room.
That growth, along with Merchandise Warehouse’s more aggressive pursuit of the latest technologies, presented the perfect opportunity to act on the company’s motto: “Take it to the next level.”
