Project details: Industry: Agriculture/Manufacturing Objective: Increase Capacity for Established Parts Storage Facility META products installed: META CLIP Boltless Shelving System - Multi-tier system The Challenge and the Solution Replacement of Geringhoff’s existing storage system with META CLIP 2-level shelving system has helped the firm to increase the storage capacity required to service the growing agricultural industry in the midwestern United States. The META CLIP boltless shelving system with a footprint of around 3,518 square feet offers storage space of over 32,450 square feet with 3,124 shelves. The system features both single-sided and double-sided shelving bays for easier access to products and more storage space. With varying dimensions, the extremely torsion-resistant structure ensures both safety and a long useful life. The flooring consists of sturdy and robust B-Deck finished by ResinDek Panels, specially designed for industrial-grade mezzanine flooring. The state-of-the-art safety equipment includes railings, safety gates (pivot gates), and a staircase. The pivot gates ensure safe handling of the materials providing further protection to the whole shelving system. The great flexibility of META products allows Geringhoff to increase its storage capacity to meet its current and future storage needs. Geringhoff can continue to modify this shelving by adjusting the shelf height (adjusts in increments of 1”), adding additional shelf levels, or removing excess levels. The increased capacity and efficiency provideGeringhoff with the necessary flexibility to grow its successful US business even further.

“The entire experience with META has been very positive and efficient. It is a huge undertaking to completely redo an established parts department. We were able to get the job done in about 6 weeks. The META container came in on schedule along with FTL’s of decking. The installers were able to get everything up very quickly. The whole project came together and ran smoothly.

The META system is incredibly easy to work with. All shelves were installed uniformly, but moving and adjusting a shelf is simple and easy. The mezzanine has increased our shelving capacity considerably. The mezzanine offers a loading area with a pivot safety gate on both sides. This makes for easy and safe loading/unloading from the mezzanine.

Geringhoff has expanded our product line beyond corn heads to now include small grain, soybeans, sunflower, and milo harvest headers. With increased product comes the need for increased product support. The parts department has grown to meet this expansion. Our new META system will continue to help us with new demands for storage and organization.”
