Very Narrow Aisle
Since the economy is easing and employment is on the rise, consumers are feeling better overall and the stock market is showing promising signs of strength. Most indicators are pointing towards economic recovery. There are lots of businesses who are seeking to expand and are feeling this growth, though they might be a little hesitant in making the capital investment. They might find it very hard to invest in more space until the economy is on more solid footing and credit is more accessible and available.
Other than the obvious real estate savings, there are other savings to be incurred by not moving. Like for example: the utilities like air conditioning and heating, sewage, electric and water; Moving; Property taxes; Maintenance Personnel and Equipment are some of the main areas.
Also, if you incorporate increased travel for lift machines, this obviously leads to much higher fuel expenses, accelerated depreciation due to increased usage, that leads to increased maintenance expenses and additional labor costs.
Expansion is not only based on warehousing. TFA provides options for office space by using modular office solutions. These solutions comprise: containment rooms, tax benefits, clean rooms as well as flexibility in location.
One more great expansion alternative is portable mezzanines. These could be used to hold modular offices and offer vertical space for items located on the ground floor. Newly acquired extra floor space can then be utilized for product storage also. Another alternative for freeing up more valuable floor space can be accomplished by having a mezzanine area on top of your modular office.
