Together with Crown Equipment Corporation and Conveyor Solutions, Inc., Alpine Supply Chain Solutions Helps Hy-Capacity Remain in Their Current Space for Two Additional Years

Alpine Supply Chain Solutions, a boutique consulting firm focused on maximizing supply chain investments, today announced the successful completion of a facility design project for Hy-Capacity Tractor Parts. When Hy-Capacity, a leading provider of new and remanufactured agricultural equipment parts, began to run out of warehouse space, they contacted Crown Equipment Corporation and Conveyor Solutions, Inc, who brought in their long-time partner, Alpine Supply Chain Solutions, to help them analyze the company’s storage and layout needs.

Alpine Supply Chain Solutions took a data-centric approach to determining layout options that would create more storage space for Hy-Capacity in their existing location. They started with a Storage Type Analysis to fully understand the warehouse environment. They also conducted an ABC analysis to determine the value of inventory items based on their importance to the business. With that information in hand, Alpine was able to create a plan that would increase Hy-Capacity’s space by 85 percent without interrupting operations. This was accomplished by splitting the warehouse into four zones which allowed for changes to be implemented zone by zone with little to no impact on customer service.

Before the project, Hy-Capacity was planning to expand their operation into an overflow facility in 2022. However, the new layout and increased storage capacity mean that Hy-Capacity can remain in its current space for several years. Once Alpine completed the analysis and design, Crown and Conveyor Solutions secured the required material handling equipment.

According to Chad Vaudt, Production Manager at Hy Capacity, “Alpine asked all the right questions and made meticulous use of our data to create a plan that bought us two more years in this location. Simply put, they went above and beyond, showcasing their ability to maximize space, equipment, labor, and control.”

“Helping companies get the most out of their supply chain solutions is what we do best.” Shared Alpine’s Managing Principal, Michael Wohlwend, “Ensuring Hy-Capacity could continue to do business as usual and supply the farmers who feed us has been a really great challenge.”
