Geotechnology Cantilever Rack: Case Study


Geotechnology is a professional engineering and environmental services corporation that works on a broad range of projects in applied earth, environmental sciences and geotechnical engineering. 

Cody, Drilling Manager with Geotechnology, contacted Industrial Shelving Systems (ISS) to help find a solution to store their industrial augers at their Kansas City, MO location. Storing long or odd shaped inventory can take up a lot of space and be quite difficult to store, a problem that the team at ISS is always excited to help clients solve.


After assessing the size and quantities of Geotechnology’s equipment, Tom of ISS, determined that a Meco Cantilever Rack would be the best option to store the large augers.

Cantilever Racks are the perfect solution for holding longer, heavy, and odd shaped materials - such as augers - that are too large to be stored on traditional pallet racks. Uprights, arms, and brace sets are the 3 components of the Cantilever Rack. Additional arms, uprights, and cross braces may be added at any time to add to an existing Cantilever system providing room for growth as well as inventory changes.

The lack of front posts allows for easy movement and placement of large, hard-to-handle items. Different sized arms may be interchanged on the racks to allow for future equipment changes. Forklifts can easily load on and off arms and bases. 

Thanks to the team at ISS, Geotechnology now has an organized, efficient, and accessible Cantilever Rack Storage for their augers.
