SMH Elevated Work Platform Project CompleteFriday, April 17, 2009
SMH’s new Elevated Work Platform (EWP) expansion project at the Kansas headquarters has been completed. The project consisted of building a 37,000 square foot mezzanine complete with automated conveyoring to assist in product replenishments and order pulling. The new EWP consists of 3,460 new beams and close to 65 tons of steel, adding 20,000 new stocking locations and increasing the length of the automated conveyor system to over two miles.
Additionally 17 new check-pack stations were added to bring the total number of stations to 33. These additional stations will increase order packing efficiency and help to prevent shipment errors.
