Design and Installation During Construction
Building on their years of success, Hall Buick GMC recently struck ground on a new and improved auto body and parts facility. As their business and reputation grew over time, they had come to realize that their existing building couldn’t handle the growth in business they were experiencing.
New construction meant they could design the perfect collision service center to accommodate their growing clientele while better organizing and laying out their auto parts storage and service.
As construction moved forward, Hall Buick GMC had not yet found a warehousing expert to partner with for the design and installation of their new parts storage. Fortunately, Rode Chambers, Automotive Specialist for W. W. Cannon, was in the neighborhood and stopped by.
“Everyone knows Hall Buick and GMC. I just happened to be going by and saw they were doing some construction,” said Chambers. “I thought I’d check in and see if they needed a hand.”
With the construction still ongoing, Hall Buick GMC took Chambers up on his offer and he sat down with the blueprints for the new parts department to assess the situation and offer a solution.
“I knew we could provide them with exactly what they wanted even though construction was still ongoing,” said Chambers.
Listening to Their Needs and Designing to Maximize Workflow
Customized storage for auto parts and service centers is old hat for W.W. Cannon. Since 1938, they have been the name to trust for automotive storage solutions, material handling systems, and industrial storage equipment in Dallas TX and the surrounding region. Chambers in particular has a strong history with the automotive industry and knew exactly how to tackle this challenge.
With a clear understanding of what Hall Buick GMC needed, Chambers designed a system that stored parts in a location that allowed for a much smoother flow from storage to technician. The brand-new building meant they could keep large parts in an area of their own, easily accessible by employees and easy to move by a small fleet of carts.
To take advantage of vertical storage space, a mezzanine work platform was installed above auto parts shelving units. Modular parts shelving, bin units, and customized auto storage equipment installed on the main floor were designed around the exact parts needed for all Hall Buick GMC customer’s automobile care.
Ready for Today and for the Future
Hall Buick GMC’s collision, auto body service and parts center is now a highly organized and custom designed storage system, making it a much more efficient player in the business.
“We developed a really good relationship and we’re looking forward to helping them in their next phase of growth,” said Chambers. “Customers of Hall Buick GMC in Tyler, Texas can expect to see their already great service get even better.”
