Client Background

Based in Bellwood, Illinois, this is not just another candy company; it is an organization driven by passion and determination to lead the future of sweet snacking globally. Their aspirations are anchored in a dynamic and ambitious team with resources that can cater to a global scale.

Facility Description

The facility in Bellwood is a food-grade storage site that seldom ceases operations - only shutting down during holidays. A crucial component of this facility is its bustling dock and storage area. With numerous lanes and dock doors, this section sees a significant amount of activity, making it pivotal for operations.

Requested Maintenance

During the Labor Day weekend, spanning a mere three days, the company was in urgent need of redefining its dock area. The challenge? Their previously employed contractor couldn't accommodate such a vast project within the limited shutdown window.

Decision Driver and Timing

The main driving factor for the client was the disorganized dock area, which could potentially hamper their storage and delivery operations. Furthermore, the need for a robust coating system was essential to withstand the consistent fork traffic and help organize lanes and products more effectively.

Scope of Work

  • Comprehensive preparation of the dock area for line striping.
  • Application of a new, durable 3-coat dock line striping system.
  • 2,200 Lineal Feet of 4" line marking to distinctly demarcate various sections.
  • Ensuring the coating can endure the regular fork traffic.

Notable Details

Limited Shutdown Window

Despite the brief three-day Labor Day weekend being the only window available, our team, consisting of eight dedicated professionals, worked meticulously side-by-side to ensure the timely completion of the project.

Robust Line Striping

Understanding the needs of a food-grade storage facility, a three-coat dock line striping coating system was introduced. This ensured not only clarity in demarcation but also long-lasting durability against constant fork traffic.

Partnership and Understanding

Given our past engagements with multiple client locations, we had an inherent understanding of their needs and requirements. This pre-established rapport allowed for smoother communication and efficient work execution.

Safety

Safety remained paramount. Our team adhered to stringent safety guidelines, ensuring the well-being of everyone involved and that the work was in line with the company's core operating principles.

Client Satisfaction

The candy company's need for an organized dock area was met precisely, efficiently, and within the stipulated time frame. Their trust in us was validated by our commitment to delivering top-notch quality, ensuring their operations can run seamlessly without any hitches. This candy company now boasts a redefined and robust dock area, ready to meet the demands of its global snacking aspirations.
