Walmart Distribution Center in Seymour, Indiana, is a crucial hub in Walmart’s supply chain, ensuring that products are efficiently received, stored, and dispatched to various Walmart stores. The facility operates 24/7 to meet the demanding logistical requirements associated with serving a vast network of retail outlets.
The Distribution Center encompasses a fuel island that is integral to the facility's daily operations. This fuel island, with a concrete floor measuring 2500 sq. ft., experienced wear and tear over time due to the continuous fueling activities and heavy vehicular traffic. It exhibited visible damages including, but not limited to, diesel soaking, oil spots from trucks, and a deteriorated appearance due to aging, thereby necessitating a swift and effective floor rejuvenation process.
The client approached us with the need for a meticulous floor refresh for their fuel island. Given the significant damage, staining, and outdated look, it was imperative to not only enhance its aesthetic appeal but also to improve its safety features with appropriate grip and clear markings. Furthermore, the client emphasized the importance of minimal disruption to their operations, requiring that only one bay be non-operational at a time during the maintenance process.
Decision Driver and Timing
Several factors drove the client to prioritize this project for the budget year, key among them being the state of the damaged concrete floor soaked in diesel, oil spots from trucks, and an overall dated and dirty look. These conditions not only presented a safety concern but also did not align with the corporate image that Walmart aims to project at all its facilities.
Scope of Work
- Application of Floor Urethane Cement for a durable and resilient finish.
- Facelift to the fuel island floors to enhance the aesthetic appearance and improve safety through added grip and clear markings.
- Quick turnaround with a commitment to efficiency, ensuring that only one bay would be out of service at a given time to accommodate the center's 24/7 operations.
- Collaboration between our crew and the client’s team for a seamless and efficient work process, demonstrating expertise in product selection and application methods.
