Value matters at every facet of Ocean State Job Lot. As opportunistic merchants, Ocean State provides various manufacturer retail offerings from closeouts, overruns and packaging changes. In this project, VARGO was asked to validate the assumptions and design criteria provided by another firm. After value engineering the system, VARGO was able to alter the design and reduce the overall cost of the system.
VARGO designed a turnkey system including pallet rack, conveyor equipment, high speed sortation and multi-level pick modules, all previously owned. The equipment was de-installed at the existing site, transported to the new facility and re-installed. Services also included project management, installation and commissioning. The new system began providing the customer with enhanced performance and increased customer satisfaction.
