Mobis Parts America (MPA), the aftermarket parts distribution arm for Hyundai and Kia Motor America's dealer network was challenged to meet the growing demand of parts for both their Hyundai and Kia brands in 2013. In order to meet this demand, (MPA) contracted with Storage Systems Midwest (SSM), a Waukesha, WI based material handling engineering and integration company, to design/build (2) new Fullfillment Centers, both with very aggressive and concurrent build schedules. The first in Ontario, CA (500K S.F) started approximately (1) month ahead of the second in Columbus, OH (400K S.F.) and both would require a 24/7 build schedule in order to meet (MPA's) "Go Live" schedule.
After considering all options, (SSM) selected WEIS, LLC to perform the installation for both projects based on their quality of work and performance on past (MPA) projects with similar work conditions and circumstances. Although it took an herculean effort on our part to pull it off, our unbelievable and commited team professionals were able to complete both projects on time and schedule. The following pictures depict a small glimpse of the work that was performed.
