Meca Racking Solutions recently completed a replacement project for Qld-based George Weston & Sons which has significantly increased the firm’s storage capacity.

George Weston’s previous pallet racking system was configured with insufficient capacity for its cubic volume resulting in reduced usage and constant monitoring of system.

George Weston & Sons is one of Qld's leading non-ferrous metal suppliers specialising in all types of copper based alloys, specialist metals, mainly brass and copper sheeting and bar products. 

The business was using an alternate cantilever system for storage and dispatch in their main warehouse facility however the system was under engineered and lacked the required capacity for the day-to-day business.

On review, Meca Racking Solutions replaced the system with a heavy duty, 60 tone capacity Cantilever system with more capacity than cubic volume. This now gives George Weston & Sons increased efficiency and a safer structure for current business needs with the capacity for future growth.

Robert Lund, Manager of George Weston & Sons said: “The new warehouse configuration has solved our storage problem with its superior design and weight holding capacity and at the same time created a safer environment for our staff. It has increased our holding capacity and stream lined our receiving ability.”

Meca is Australia’s leading supplier of cantilever racking. It offers a complete solution across warehouse storage services and products to ensure an efficient and effective warehouse system.
