Allentown, PA (PRWEB) March 27, 2009
Stanley Vidmar, a manufacturer of premium custom storage solutions for use in a wide range of industries, recently partnered with Sea Box®, Inc., of New Jersey, to provide adjustable shelving for integration in containers (known as Quadcons) for the U.S. Marine Corps. The collaboration resulted in Sea Box being awarded a five-year $8.3 million contract last fall. Sea Box is a leading supplier of ISO and other types of containers to the military and other markets.
"Sea Box approached us because of our expertise at maximizing storage space with creative, custom-configured solutions," said Jim Cannon, president and general manager of Stanley Engineered Storage Solutions, which oversees operations of Stanley Vidmar.
To utilize every available inch of storage space, Stanley Vidmar engineers created a brand-new cabinet width (53-1/4 inches) using a frame-style construction. "This design provides an affordable scalable solution (up to 7 feet) that maximizes the left-to-right dimension of the storage container," says Stanley Vidmar engineering manager Steve Lung. To ensure Sea Box's competitiveness in responding to its RFP, Stanley Vidmar needed to meet an aggressive schedule. "We went from prototype to ready to order in 13 weeks," Lung says.
Used for deployment, the Sea Box/Stanley Vidmar Common 12 Quadcons were designed "to store general mechanics' toolboxes and various items under a variety of conditions," according to contract specifications.
Due in part to the durability of the Stanley® Vidmar® cabinets, the Quadcons passed the drop test critical to ensuring the safety of transported materials stored within them.
To date, Stanley Vidmar has had two releases to Sea Box, totaling 90 cabinets of the 350 on order.
