Rousseau Solution for Crescent Towing

Crescent Towing is responsible for running the harbor assist tugs that tie up the ships at the Port of Savannah, one of the busiest in the country. It’s imperative that they keep their tugs in top running order, 24/7. So, you can imagine that having an accurate, well-organized, and efficient inventory is very important to their success. In their warehouse they had installed a self-supporting, shelf mezzanine system. This is a very inexpensive way to maximize your storage capacity by taking advantage of your overhead space. However, when it comes to smaller parts and basic inventory control, “drawers-in shelving” is the optimum solution. In an ongoing project, Q Material Handling was able to install Rousseau’s modular drawers into our competitor’s shelving. I could go on and present the math of how this would improve their inventory system, but these pictures do a much better job:

With two banks of drawers consisting of eight 3″ drawers and four 6″ drawers, we were able to open up five shelving units.

Armstrong State Install

We recently finished an installation for the Mechanical Engineering Lab at Armstrong State University in Savannah, GA. Q Material Handling was excited to contribute to the college’s expansion and wish Dr. Coates and his team good luck. Go Pirates! Here is what the lab looked like when we started:

Nice folding tables, huh.

They ordered six 72” L x 44” D student tables with adjustable legs. They chose painted (black) steel tops, which we covered with rubber to act as a sacrificial cover. Four students are at each table, so to save space we put two of the computer articulating arms to one post and mounted them centered on the ends. They also got a teacher’s table and several odd-sized tables.

The computer supports are very well designed with stainless steel posts. These have a very clean look and are compatible with a stainless steel or painted steel cover that could house electrical outlets.

Armstrong also chose to purchase electronic workstations, complete with grounding kits, for their lab that will be ready for next year.

Electronic Workstation is dissipative tops and shelf.

Do you have metal shelving? Does the space in the back of the shelves feel wasted? Do you ever “lose” parts or supplies that are hidden by the stuff stored on the front of the shelf? Q Material Handling has a solution that will enable you to access the entire depth of your shelving unit and it will help with inventory control and efficiency. Using Rousseau’s Drawer-in-Shelving System, we can install their world-class, 400-lb. capacity R Modular Drawers in more than 35 different brands of shelving. Drawers come in 36″, 42″, and 48″ widths at depths of 18″ or 24″. Roll-out shelves, as seen on the bottom the featured shelving unit, are also available. You can choose from four different bank heights: 18″, 24″, 36″, & 48″. If you need a complete setup you can get Rousseau’s shelving with drawers. The picture on the left is the Rousseau unit (42″ x 24″ x 87″) that we put in the Savannah showroom. If you are interested or want more information then give us a call at 301-745-8908.
