Having additional freezer capacity gives us the ability to manage shelf life more efficiently for frozen adhesives and other materials with manufacturer-specified expiration dates.
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Graco Supply, a nationally recognized supplier for the aircraft and industrial markets, is pleased to announce the addition of a new freezer unit at the company’s Fort Worth, Texas, location. There are already walk-in freezers at the Wichita, Kan., Tulsa, Okla., High Point, N.C., and Fort Worth locations, but this new freezer, installed March 30, 2012, will double the freezing capacity at the Fort Worth location.
The new freezer brings the total frozen storage capacity to 15’x20’x8’ for a total storage space of 2,400 square feet. Products such as frozen film adhesives, prepregs, associated primers and other materials used in composite manufacturing are stored at minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit for a longer shelf life.
“Having additional freezer capacity gives us the ability to manage shelf life more efficiently for frozen adhesives and other materials with manufacturer-specified expiration dates,” said Steve Novakovich, executive vice president of operations for Graco Supply.
Added storage capacity also provides the capacity to stock inventory in bulk, which gives Graco Supply the opportunity to expand the services within the industries they currently serve. Customers of Graco Supply can expect to find products from several trusted manufacturers, including 3M, Huntsman, Henkel and Hexcel. Many products from these manufacturers will now be stocked in bulk, thanks to the new freezer that is already up and running at Graco Supply’s Fort Worth location.
