What Are You Selling Today by Greg Brown, President of W.W. Cannon in Dallas TXWAYST-What Are You Selling Today – Seriously, waste no space or time with a modular in-plant office solution from Starrco.

Greg Brown, President of W.W. Cannon, is off to Houston TX to provide a custom solution for one of our manufacturing clients serving the energy industry.

Guard Rail and Starrco BldgTheir growing needs required a solution for office space to accomodate additional employees without permanent construction.  Within a busy company, rapid turnaround plus very little production interruption on their manufacturing floor was a top priority.  Starrco modular office buildings provided just the solution.  Easily relocated office structures with unlimited flexibility to respond quickly to evolving needs.  All building systems are easy to configure, relocate, assemble and wire.

Taking advantage of the facility’s ceiling height, the new modular office space will be located on a Cogan mezzanine steel storage platform within the manufacturing plant floor giving them additional space above and below.  Rows of steel shelving manufactured by Rousseau Metal will be part of the solution to provide for their growing storage needs.

Modular In-Plant Building Features:

  • Vinyl covered gypsum board walls give a professional, clean appearance.
  • Panels need no mud, sanding, painting (translated: less mess and limited work disruption).
  • Typical installation – 1 Day for a 12′ x 12′ (144 sqft) office – 3-4 Days for a 30′ x 12′ (288 sqft) three room office.

  • Electric “plug and play” system includes receptacles and lighting with pre-wired breakers.  System easy to unplug/plug back in when relocating structure.
  • Considered tangible property, there is a significant tax benefit.  Tangible property is depreciated over a 7 year period.

The Eagle VI moves air with less energy. Lower energy costs up to 30% with the Eagle VI six-airfoil system. Air velocity is increased in the hot summer months and de-stratifies hot air pockets in the winter.

Limited space? No worries!  The Falcon III, which is built for smaller areas, may be right for you. If you have a compact environment, consider the Blue Giant Falcon III system to optimize temperatures.

Eagle VI – Six blade fan from 12′ – 24′ blades designed to increase air velocity.

Falcon III – Three blades from 6′ – 14′ moves air up to 12′ in small to medium areas.AutoPilot_MultiFanController_300px

AutoPilot – All fans can operate together or separately with the AutoPilot remote control.

With the LCD touchscreen display panel users can adjust individual fan speeds and change fan rotation with just one touch.

For added safety, the AutoPilot controls tie into the building fire system and will shut down in case of an emergency.

Loading Dock Bumpers – Entry Point Dock Safety!

Loading dock safety with dock bumpers in Dallas TXDid you know that the force of impact that a backing up semi truck can generate is about 300,000 pounds of force?  That’s why loading dock bumpers are one of the basic, most important safety components of the loading dock area.

Loading Dock – Entry Point Dock Safety

At the very beginning or end of every trucking journey, there is a loading dock in which they need to pull in to.  Having a point of entry that protects truck, trailer, product, and dock is essential.  Rubber dock bumpers have impact resilience and strength to withstand the awesome impact from daily truck stops.

But over time, the rubber wears and tears becoming a potential safety hazard.  Fortunately, they’re one of the most cost effective safety components to replace and install in your loading dock area!


When Should You Replace Your Dock Bumpers?  

The dock bumpers you see in the top picture belong to a busy customer of ours in the pollution control industry.  Perfect example of wear and tear over the busy life of a rubber bumper.  Once you see large rubber chunks dropping off, it’s definitely time to replace.

We know there are a few factors that affect dock bumper selection such as dock height, dock approach, truck bed heights, general truck/trailer volume, and what dock equipment is being used such as dock levelers or standard dock plates.

Dock Bumper Replacement = Safety

after-bumper-installSales account manager, Chris Bewley, knew the exact bumper they needed for efficient and safe un/loading.  Always ensuring proper and safe equipment installation, install tech Jody Rogers increased safety at their point of entry.  Bewley was also able to evaluate any other potential safety issues within the loading dock area.  This helps provide the crew with current operational equipment status and awareness of any potential hazards.  Having a consistent loading dock maintenance and repair plan is a great way to preserve the life of your equipment while keeping a consistent eye on safety.

Auto Parts Storage Solutions in Dallas TXWe’re all busy trying to get done what we need to do, right?  What happens when we’re busy, running out of space, and have additional product to store?  It gets stored on the floor – and we all know how fast that can get messy if not handled soon.

Our friends at Ancira Volkswagen in Laredo TX needed extra storage space within their facility.  Their growing demands called for some strategic storage planning.  They already had a great start on facilitating space with their mezzanine system but needed a quick installation of some basic shelving units to expand their storage capabilities.RiveTier boltless style shelving in Dallas TX

There’s nothing quicker than RiveTier boltless style shelving.  With the rivet snap-in and lock connection, setting up several rows of shelving units was quick and painless – no bolts, no cross-ties, no mess.  No toolbox either, just a rubber mallet to tap the rivets into place.  With weight capacities of up to 2400 lbs/shelf, these units are sturdy and reliable.

Up to 40% More Space Utilizedafter-in-process-rivet-shelving

The new boltless shelving units allowed them to efficiently store 40% more automotive parts.  Our friends immediately experienced reduced damage to product, increased productivity, and picking efficiency.  Ergonomic issues were also addressed by adding the shelving units – no more stacking or lifting from the floor.  We even added a few more rows of RiveTier for their records storage.

Our friends at Ancira Volkswagen were extremely pleased with their increased storage capabilities.  We plan on helping them to keep on top of their future storage needs as they grow.

Two Companies Value Safety – W.W. Cannon Provides Safety Solutions in Garland, TX

Warehouse Collision Prevention Equipment - Dallas TX

Bollards and guardrail protect equipment and personnel from heavy traffic areas - Dallas TXSafety is a priority for our loyal customer and W.W. Cannon offered a safety solution for their productive manufacturing plant.

Plant manager, Eli needed his pallet rack relocated quickly into their brand new add-on facility. Our Warehouse Lifeguard, Doug Hutchins, went into action to provide the safety measures and equipment they required.

Guardrail protects personnel from heavy traffic areas - Dallas TXTo ensure the safest environment, Doug suggested adding guard rail, end of isle protectors and bollards to protect equipment, and ensure employees can move in and out of the isles safely.

Implementation and configuration of safety products included: 

  • protecting new pallet rack
  • the building walls
  • electrical panels
  • bathrooms

Column protectors keep columns safe from collision. Dallas TX Guardrail keeps your equipment safe from forklift damage. Dallas TX Guard rail was added outside the building to protect the building itself and the offices that large delivery trucks are being driven around the area.

Bollards were strategically placed: 

  • next to door ways
  • building columns
  • around battery charging area for their forklifts and encircled around the area for maximum safety

End of Aisle protectors were added to pallet rack to ensure the safest possible solution for product and avoid unnecessary fork lift damage.

Since getting the job completed safely was a #1 concern, our crew worked quickly at night. Productivity in the manufacturing and shipping areas ran smoothly without delays during the installation project. Our installation foreman, Frank Guevara, managed the project from beginning to completion with speed, safety and excellence.

Two companies that value safety come together and get the job done!
