Safety should always be a chief concern among business leaders.
Protecting employees from accidents in the workplace is not only the right thing to do morally, it’s one of the most cost-effective commitments an employer can make. According to research from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, American businesses spend an estimated $1 billion every week on workers’ compensation payments alone. Yikes! That can’t be good for the company checkbook or a brand’s reputation.

We’re especially proud of the mobile shelving we installed for the Badgers, so much so we could go on and on about it. That said, we’ll let Assistant Equipment Manager Sam Wrobel tell you exactly why he’s happy to see better, smarter storage capabilities in his locker rooms.
Even in a technology-driven world where digitization rules, there’s still a place for hardware stores selling real tools to solve real problems and build real things.

These retailers must sell smarter to the do-it-yourself crowd, as well as make changes to the kinds of equipment and resources they stock. Smarter storage solutions for hardware stores like high-density shelving/racking and mobile storage installations can strike at the heart of these issues, helping these retailers develop a greater presence in the marketplace.
