When reviewing sawing service productivity in Autumn 2022, The Alternative Steel Company found that improved loading and unloading facilities would speed up its end-to end process and impact on cost of service. As a result of this assessment, we have recently invested in three new dual hoist cranes.
The image above shows the latest crane leaving the Taurus Cranes factory and starting its journey towards installation at The Alternative Steel Company.
This investment ultimately makes The Alternative Steel Company’s operations more efficient, safer and less time consuming. The new cranes give us additional availability to cut more steel. Saws have been repositioned so that we can utilise them more efficiently, and new racking gives us a 40% greater stock density – allowing us to carry 40% more stock in the same warehouse space, at the same warehouse cost. In turn, the new dual hoist cranes make accessing the new racking safer and quicker.
Safer, faster, better!
