For warehouse managers and companies aiming to refine their operations, this page offers insights into warehouse efficiency. Extracting wisdom from Vermont’s advanced warehousing strategies, we present practical methods and success tips for an impactful overhaul of warehouse operations.


Silver Maple Construction – Redefining Warehouse Design in Vermont

Silver Maple Construction, a prominent name in Vermont’s construction landscape, caters to a diverse clientele, including significant players in agriculture and food processing. Silver Maple Construction’s warehouse recently underwent a redesign with the team at AK Material Handling Systems (AK). By consulting with AK, Silver Maple Construction chose to change the warehouse layout and integrate state-of-the-art selective racking systems and column protection

The new and used pallet racking has enhanced Silver Maple’s storage capabilities, helping to improve efficiency in handling client demands and meet their commitment to delivering quality client service. Wire decking and Ridg-U-Rak column protectors were incorporated into this design, adding storage surface and durability to the racking system, and bolstering it against forklift damage.

“Silver Maple Construction was great to work with! We were able to utilize new and used materials to help keep the project within their budget, creating 54 new pallet positions for material storage in their Middlebury facility.”

Modifications made by Silver Maple Construction in its warehouses have significantly elevated its ability to serve a broad client base. The integration of advanced racking solutions has streamlined their operations, ensuring quicker and more reliable product handling, thus enhancing customer satisfaction.

FleetPride: Enhancing Safety for Heavy-Duty Storage

FleetPride, a heavy-duty truck and trailer parts and service provider, keeps fleets operating fast and efficiently. The company’s Burlington, Vermont distribution center recently enhanced its own safety, implementing over 72 lbs of shelf clips to stabilize and secure its racking system.

We provided 800+ Lyon 8000 galvanized safety clips for their racking system. Safety clips are an easily overlooked component in warehousing, but FleetPride’s commitment to safety and safety regulation adherence is apparent in its implementation of safety clips. We were thrilled to help this business secure its racking so they could focus on their mission to “Keep America’s Trucks Moving”!
