Concern: Countrywide Supermarket Backroom Storage Needs

Backroom ShelvingA rapidly expanding supermarket chain was running into issues with managing and maintaining a reliable source for their backroom rivet shelving needs. With numerous locations across the US, the company was taking on the time-consuming task of managing an expansive list of manufacturers and suppliers needed to fulfil their needs.

Rather than go through multiple companies to fulfill each location’s needs, they sought to partner with one company who could handle it all. That company would need to accommodate increasing demands as the company expands.

Solution: Countrywide Project Management

The company partnered with REB Storage Systems to project manage their backroom storage needs across the US. Working with REB is advantageous to the company because REB handles every aspect of each project, giving the customer the convenience of utilizing one company for all materials, freight management, and labor as needed.

The company now only has one point of contact when expanding their backroom storage. As a systems integrator, REB has an expansive network of manufacturers and installers. This allows REB to source all products for the company’s backroom storage, including shelving, decking, and post protectors. The company no longer needs to work with a network of manufacturers and installers firsthand. REB works to find the best fit for each job.

REB’s 100,000 square foot stocking facility is centrally located, allowing REB to store, pack, and ship all inventory directly to each location across the US, even within tight timeframes. It also allows REB to alter the standard size units to fit uniquely sized spaces so that each store can fully utilize their backroom.

As the company’s stocking distributor, REB works with them to determine growth projections. This allows REB to purchase the products in bulk ahead of time, which results in time and cost savings for the company. This ability to stock, in bulk, the products the company requires provides cost and time savings for the company.


Outcome: Increased Selectivity and Storage Density

Coverage map of where REB completed jobs for the customer.

Since April 2012, REB has provided turnkey backroom storage solutions to the company. REB has completed 4,280 jobs across 38 states.

As a full-service provider, REB handles every aspect of each project, giving the customer the convenience of utilizing one company for all materials, freight management and labor as needed. REB houses all inventory in one central location, which ensures the safe and on-time delivery of materials to each location.

The rivet shelving was implemented to help increase storage density and selectivity. This solution continues to allow the company to store their in-store inventory vertically, which provides optimal space utilization.
