FLEXSPACE Mobile Racking System Improves Storage Capacity by 60%* at Nor-Am Cold Storage
Updated: Dec 1, 2021
We are pleased to share the completion of a Poweracks installation at Nor-Am Cold Storage in Kansas.
In 2017, Nor-Am purchased the Affiliated Foods distribution center in Elwood, Kansas. It quickly became clear that an expansion was necessary to accommodate increased customer demand for its deep freeze (-20F) capabilities. In 2018, a 41,000 square foot expansion was underway and completed in earlier this year.
This expansion provided Nor-Am the opportunity to utilize Poweracks, mobile, high density storage system. The business case was obvious, when compared to double-double*:
60% more pallet positions
100% accessibility to every pallet
169% increase in annual EBITDA
Gaining more efficiency, agility, and revenue - provided Nor-Am the ability to capitalize on a smaller building footprint, resulting in lower operating costs.
As the Poweracks installation was underway, Mother Nature was not our friend. We faced down a Polar Vortex and the Missouri River flood. We’re proud to say our team was able to meet compressed deadlines and ensure that ice cream would be frozen this summer.
