A MODERN STORAGE SOLUTION FOR A HISTORIC COMPANY

Updated: Apr 28


Smith Corona has been putting ink to paper since 1886, beginning with typewriters and later transitioning to labels. They are a company of firsts: the first portable typewriter, the first personal word processor, one of the first to introduce thermal printers and thermal ribbon technologies. Today, as a leading US manufacturer, they produce thermal labels and ribbons used in warehouses primarily for barcoding.


AGE OLD CHALLENGE

Smith Corona’s growth necessitated a warehouse expansion for additional storage. Its current facility was landlocked which left them no other choice but to utilize real estate across the street. Additional space was achieved at a cost of labor, production, and overhead inefficiencies. A better economical, logistical, efficient solution for increased storage capacity was needed.


NEW AGE ANSWER

The FLEXSPACE Mobile Racking System eliminates static aisle space and creates an automated warehouse storage system. By eliminating the unused aisle space between static racks and replacing it with a single access aisle, mobile racking provides class-leading efficiency, increased productivity, and exponentially increased storage capacity. Win-win: Smith Corona remains in its current facility- in the city they love- while having their storage capacity needs met with the FLEXSPACE Mobile Racking System.

POWERACKS INSTALLATION IN EXISTING WAREHOUSESPACE

Start to finish, FLEXSPACE Mobile Racking system was installed within four weeks with minimal business interruption. Smith Corona is reaping the benefits of additional storage space within its existing footprint and greater business efficiencies by eliminating leased warehouse space.
