CASE STUDY: MOTHER MURPHY’S FOOD & BEVERAGE
Mother Murphy's purchased a new facility that is being transitioned into a distribution center plus a new manufacturing area. Due to the nature of their business they have a large volume of Class 1B flammable on hand at all times. At the old facility the client was storing large amounts of these flammable liquids in an area not designated for flammable storage. They were in compliance with the local authorities because the storage area was “Grandfathered” in.
For the new facility U.S. Chemical Storage provided two large 4 hour fire rated units that are designed to store totes and pallets. The two fire rated lockers feature additional accessories, including push back racking, optimizing access to a two-level, three-deep approved storage area. Using this design there is no wasted space and they are able to store the proper amount of material needed.
Our client is now able to store their hazardous material close or inside their facility, therefore providing our client with increased operational production within their manufacturing operations. Both flammable storage units are temperature controlled, ventilated, and protected with approved fire suppression systems. With the addition of these new units the client is now in compliance with current State & Local Codes.
