Dealer: Hagemeyer North America - Charleston, S.C. Project: BMW Automotive Facility - Greer, S.C.
We Only Represent The Best
Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, Hagemeyer North America is a distributor of products and services focusing on B2B markets in electrical materials, safety products, and industrial products. Customers like BMW expect their vendors to supply them with only the best quality products available. Hagemeyer NA understands quality and for that reason they worked with Strong Hold Products when the storage of parts and tools became an issue on the BMW production floor.
Thinking Outside The Box
BMW's production line, like many automotive facilities, has an abundance of parts and tools that must be stored efficiently, effectively and most importantly, close to the work area. Strong Hold heavy duty industrial cabinets were the perfect solution for Hagemeyer to propose to BMW. However, there was a challenge... A typical 48" wide cabinet has two 24" wide hinge doors that swing outwards. BMW did not want to lose aisle space and with a high volume of these cabinets, they did not want doors left open causing potential hazards in active aisle ways. The issue was brought to Strong Hold by Hagemeyer NA and we designed a roll up door cabinet which allows full access to the cabinet but achieves BMW's goal of keeping aisle ways clear of obstacles. The roll up door is clean, neat and eliminates any chance of an accident in high volume production areas.
One Thing Leads To Another
Because of the successful solution, in addition to the roll up door cabinets, BMW has also turned to Hagemeyer and Strong Hold for many other industrial product requirements. Within the Greer, SC facility you can find Strong Hold tool carts, shop tables, shop desks and the original 46-244 heavy duty industrial shop cabinets.
Why Take Chances With Your Best Customer
Hagemeyer knows there are other cabinet manufactures out there that make a cheaper cabinet, but finding another customer like BMW is extremely difficult. BMW expects the very best workmanship on the products they produce and they expect that same quality from their suppliers. Hagemeyer is proud to represent Strong Hold for the quality of the product and the excellent service that goes along with it.
