At the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the team at BUILT Systems knew that we would have to step up and help the essential workers on the front lines in any way that they could. With material handling and product movement being a specialty of BUILT Systems, we were approached by a medical facility in Michigan that had a need for mobile racks suited specifically for the medical industry. Taking this pandemic very seriously, the team at BUILT Systems jumped at the opportunity to help.
The need for a variety of mobile racks for the medical industry that would stand up to the rigorous use and chemicals used in the medical field.
The racks had to be fully mobile yet able to lock into place when needed. They needed to be lightweight yet able to hold up to 1500lbs. They needed to have multiple shelves with stainless steel surfaces that were easily washable.
Brainstorming and Design
The start of this project and partnership posed some additional challenges because of the stay home orders that were mandated throughout most of the country. The sales and design team at BUILT began the design discussions using virtual meetings and multiple phone conference calls. Meeting with multiple team members from their facility and using screen sharing as the new normal for communication, the small details were discussed and settled on, giving the design team a clear path to follow.
Because mobile material movement is not something new to BUILT, we were able to use several existing designs and morph them into the basic framework of a storage rack. With our in-house abilities of laser cutting and brake press, we had no problems creating the stainless-steel surfaces needed for these racks.
The final product that was delivered to the customer was exactly what they wanted. Once the products were placed into their temporary locations, the team at this medical facility took pictures and sent them back to the team. They expressed how impressed and excited they were about the mobility these racks had for their size. Knowing that we were able to aid in this pandemic with this simple storage solution made the whole team at BUILT grateful for the opportunity. This set of products is something that we at BUILT are proud to display.
Providing solutions for customers is what the team at BUILT Systems lives for. Our team always excited to collaborate with customers to come up with products that meet their needs. Contact us today to learn more about how BUILT Systems can help you!
