Recent Comments from Our Clients

Pipp Mobile Storage Systems, Inc.

“I just wanted to let you know of the great team effort that took place last month for some of our new racking system.  I placed a call into Will Tooker and within 3-4 hours we had purchased Interlake racks with Waterfall grid for our plant.  We negotiated pricing and are thrilled at the new racks put up effortlessly.  Your company was very easy to work with and we are looking forward to purchasing twice as much racking next year as this year.  Keep up the great work.” – Kim Glynn

Hommer Tools & Manufacturing, Inc.

“We sincerely enjoyed working with the team at DAK Equipment & Engineering.  We were in the midst of a large expansion and remodeling project at the time that we contacted DAK.  We gave the people at DAK the space requirements and they were able to help us come up with a modular unit that was not only functional but aesthetically pleasing.  DAK was one of the contractors that were a joy to work with since they took care of their project and executed on their deliverables from start to finish without our intervention or management.  The installation was completed on time and in a very professional manner.  That project was nearly eight years ago and the Starrco unit DAK sold us still looks great and functions well.” – J.R. Hommer

TH Foods

“We had inherited an older racking system in a part of our warehouse that needed to be changed.  We called DAK; they took down our old system and put up a brand new racking system that was designed for our needs.  As result of their work, the area is much more organized and our pallets are more accessible for our employees. We have had lots of compliments since we started using the new system.” – Rex Lorance

Five Fresh Ideas for a More Productive Warehouse

It’s the goal of every warehouse manager: make the warehouse more productive while managing to lower costs. If you can do that, you are worth your weight in gold. Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do to make your warehouse run faster and more error-free than ever. Check out these five tips from our warehouse consultants and see if they could be right for your warehouse.

Know your numbers.

You can’t improve on your numbers if you don’t know what they are in the first place! Make sure that you have a clear understanding of the metrics at work in your warehouse. Know what numbers are important and what needs to be improved upon first. This can help you streamline your thinking and focus in on what really matters to your warehouse instead of taking the scattershot approach and not making any real, significant changes.

Automate your inventory.

So many warehouses are avoiding the automation of their inventory. It’s something that can make a huge difference in the efficiency of your warehouse. There is no danger of an automated inventory system putting you out of a job, either. Inventory is one area that will still require a human touch on occasion. But automation can take a lot of the little things off of your plate and make reorders a quicker, easier process.

Maximize your space.

Don’t think of it as running out of space…think of it as an opportunity to maximize the space that you have. Many warehouses fail to make use of their vertical space and just complain that there is no floor space left. DAK warehouse consultants can work with you to create a layout and design of your warehouse equipment that maximizes every inch of your warehouse. You’ll be amazed at how much space we can find!

Keep your inventory lean.

A lean inventory is one that’s not being wasted. Practicing inventory that’s just enough and just in time helps you keep the shelves clear, maximize on what’s in the warehouse already, and create a system that’s quick to respond without bogging down in materials. Slotting and automated inventory can help you reduce your overhead inventory costs, too.

Optimize workspaces.

Your warehouse is only as efficient as your team. Make sure they have the tools they need to get the job done. This means keeping all workspaces organized and optimized with everything they need for their job, whether it’s job, a pen, a forklift, or other tools. Optimize your employees’ workspaces and see how much faster things get done.
