Case study – Integral Memory

Published on: Tuesday 19th November 2019

“The mezzanine lift provided by LLM was the ultimate solution for our warehouse: it was installed with minimal disruption and was built to fit our exact specifications. It has ensured we can continue to provide state-of-the-art memory and storage solutions to our resellers on time, every time.”

James Ockwell, Logistics Manager, Integral Memory

The project

Integral Memory required a mezzanine floor lift to maximise its warehousing space and flow of goods within the warehouse. The company needed a bespoke solution that would fit four boxes at a time, with a maximum weight capacity of 200kg, that was durable and comfortable for its operators to use.

The right solution would ensure the flow of goods was as efficient as possible.

The results

LLM designed and fitted a mezzanine lift customized to Integral Memory’s requirements; carrying four boxes at a time. The free-standing lift shaft was installed within the mezzanine floor opening and secured, minimizing the installation time and causing minimal disruption to the production line. The footprint of the lift is extremely compact so the transportation of goods from floor-to-floor production can flow seamlessly. Finally, the loading platform was designed to maintain a working height of 700mm (waist height) on both ground and first floor. The solution provides the most ergonomic and comfortable working environment for the operators, as they no longer need to lean or bend down to load the lift – preventing injuries caused by stretching and straining within the workplace.

The client

Integral Memory produces a wide range of memory and storage products including DRAM, memory cards, USB drives, Solid-State-Drives and industrial memory solutions. The company operates all its design, research and development and testing from its warehouse and offices in the UK, with sales offices in France, Spain and the Netherlands. Its products are sold by resellers in more than 50 countries and are used by governments, large corporations and educational institutions.
