TIME FOR A CHANGE
The Southern Power Company Nacogdoches Generating Facility is one of the largest biomass power plants in the United States. It generates 115 megawatts, providing power to nearby Austin, Texas through clean, environmentally friendly means. So, when it comes to productivity, the Southern Power Company knows a thing or two about efficiency. That’s why they decided they were in need of an upgrade for their technicians’ storage spaces.
FROM HASSLE TO HEAVY DUTY
While previously relying on flimsy, less-than-heavy-duty storage locker solutions, the Southern Power Company made an assessment that a stronger, heavier gauge, more durable locker upgrade was in order. We agree. We’ve done our own experiments with basic light gauge industrial storage solutions, and the results are, well, destructive to say the least.
They needed a heavy-duty solution with ample storage space, the ability to accommodate a wide variety of tools and equipment, and above all, incredible durability. Since the previous locker solutions proved to be too lightweight for their environment, they turned to Strong Hold to meet their updated needs.
LESS TIME SPENT SEARCHING FOR TOOLS AND MORE TIME USING THEM
In order to best address their concerns, the Southern Power Company designed a custom cabinet specialized for their environment. The cabinets were enlarged to accommodate larger pieces of equipment such as PPE (personal protective equipment), power tools, and battery chargers. Dimensional alterations are always possible when designing a custom product with Strong Hold. Drawers and shelves were added for storage versatility and advantaged organization. Next, they added an internal power strip for use with battery chargers, so technicians could charge their tools at their own personal locations from within the secured cabinets. Lastly, they added LED lighting to increase visibility of stored items. “Less time spent searching for tools and more time using them,” a motto we love!
