Since 1963, Lipari Foods has been a wholesale distributor of dry, refrigerated and frozen foods, today serving fourteen states across the Midwest. Headquartered in Warren, MI, Lipari recently completed the development of a new 260,000 square foot warehouse to support the company's rapid growth.
When taking on a significant project like the development of a new warehouse, Lipari Foods wanted to ensure it made smart business decisions about the warehouse design, racking and material handling equipment needs for its operation. Lipari had never adopted an engineered standard for its racking system, simply adding uprights and rails on an as needed basis. The company also experienced frequent damage to its rack, requiring replacement of at least one rack per week on an ongoing basis. The new warehouse provided the opportunity to do things a better way but the company wanted the advice of a trusted supplier to help make the right decisions.
