Golden maximizes space
LAFLIN, Pa. – Golden Technologies has installed five sets of racks, each 100 feet long, at its primary lift chair distribution center here to improve efficiency. “With our new system of power conveyors, racking and re-organization of the entire floor, movement of product through the building will be much more efficient and faster,” said Dave Leiby, vice president of finance, in a release. Before the renovation, employees walked between 17 to 22 miles a day moving lift chairs from freight trucks to the floor and then loading docks. Now they are able to use a special forklift to select the desired chair. Golden moved into the 100,000-square-feet location a year ago.
