Refinery Corporate Facility, Merger and Expansion
October 10, 2019
Following a sizable merger, a U.S. refinery needed to find space within its corporate facility for 80 additional workstations and corresponding files. The department expanded to include seven work groups that all needed convenient central access to corporate tax documents. Previously, the department relied on lateral files, rotary cabinets, and vertical filing cabinets to manage its file storage needs, but with the addition of the workstations and limited floor space, the client needed a new alternative.
To maximize the existing space, individual workstations were reduced in size and lateral files at individual workstations were eliminated. Datum installed two MobileTrak5® high-density mobile storage systems to replace the previous file storage units and to expand file storage capacity for the entire department within the existing footprint. The centrally located MobileTrak5 units organize and secure tax records in file folders, binders, bound journals, and red rope folders, and files are only accessible to authorized employees. Each MobileTrak5 carriage is 108″ long with laminate end panels, and shelving is 88 Â¼” tall with posting shelves. Both systems lock independently.Â
Not only did the mobile systems free up floor space for additional workstations, they also helped support the company’s new healthy incentive program.Â
Said one employee, “Now that the system is finished and I have been using it, I love it. It looks great in the office.”
