Going Large at SPF

MRC Global, previously SPF chose Emrack to deliver a specialised range of High-Level, Heavy Duty Storage Systems to be installed at the custom-built Jandakot, Western Australia facility. The site includes four warehouses totalling 20,000m2 and services clients throughough Australia and the Asian-Pacific region. The range of products offered by SPF is predominantly a wide variety of high-value, long-length product pipe and tube product – and specialized fittings, which can often be hard to manage and handle.

With operational procedures and future capacity being driving factors in the facility’s development – the building was designed with the Racking placement and subsequent material flow as a core priority. Several building features were dictated by the finalized racking layout.

340 tonnes of specialized storage systems were delivered in twelve containers - and installed by the highly-experienced Emrack installation team

The 20,000m2 site was focused on maximum selectivity and stock visibility. Over 2000 pipe bays and 5300 Pallet Spaces were delivered – with a Heavy Duty design applied to provide 18 Tonnes of Capacity per bay!

With steel fittings and extremely heavy items being stored in custom timber crates within the Selective Pallet Racking bays – the correct engineering specification was critical to meet the site’s growing requirements of the large scale project.

The SPF Management Team Stated “The assistance provided by the operations team and dedication of the installation teams, ensured that the project was brought in on-time and on-budget. The quality of the product and the significant savings we achieved were matched by the professionalism and dedication to engineering compliance. We found that Emrack's focus on compliance and independent engineering certifications very reassuring, and this gave us great confidence that the racking system would meet our requirements”.

Further, the MRC Global Operations Manager commented “To date the racking system has performed faultlessly, and Emrack is our exclusive National Storage Systems Partner; we have installed Emrack systems in all Australian warehouses and will be using their systems for all future acquisitions. My experience with Emrack has been both beneficial and enjoyable”

The overall project was specific in respect of its product capacity requirements. The primary requirements were Selective Pallet Racking and heavy duty Cantilever racking systems – although volume of material being stored and handled was considerable, which in-turn, required extensive consultation and design work. By working in conjunction with MRC Global during the entire design, delivery and installation process, the large scale project ran seamlessly from production to project delivery.
