There are times when an “off-the-shelf” item or standard size product is not the best solution to your material handling or storage requirement. In these instance the custom fabrication abilities of Material Storage Systems (MSS) can be an invaluable resource for your company.
MSS has over 30 years’ experience in the material handling industry. In addition, we have in-house engineers (structural and mechanical). This allows us to work with you (and your engineers, when applicable) to design the material storage or handling solution which is unique to you exact requirements. Or in some cases we have previously designed a product that can be modified (if necessary) for your particular needs.
The design process starts by listening to your requirements and concerns. You are the experts in your business as we are in our field. We will then develop an initial design, taking into consideration your specific requirements, the engineering feasibility, the ergonomics of the design, safety considerations, and the cost. This initial design will lead to a back and forth exchange of ideas and concerns, as we “tweak” the design until we both agree that we have come up with the best solution. When necessary we will build a proto-type that can be tested at your facility and modify the design based on your experiences with the proto-type.
MSS will then manufacture the designed product in our fabrication facilities located in Humble. Texas. We are an AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) and City of Houston certified fabricator and employ only certified welders. All design capacities are tested utilizing a computer simulation program and manufactured products are delivered with an affixed plate stating the model number, serial number and capacity.
