  • Representatives of Shell Office Systems and SpaceGuard Products worked together to collectively supply wire mesh caging to a new Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) at the Naval Air Station near Jacksonville, FL. The three cages will secure mobile shelving units for several departments.

    This order was the first for Shell Office Systems as a SpaceGuard distributor, and a first wire mesh caging project for its in-house installation team.

    SpaceGuard’s engineering team scheduled a meeting with both sales and installation representatives from Shell Office 2 weeks before the materials delivered to the job site.

    The meeting, held virtually via Citrix’s GoTo Meeting platform, covered everything required to receive and install the product, including a review of the packing slip, how the materials were to be packaged, the hardware included, and detail of every step from the first bolt connection to the final anchor in the floor.

    Careful consideration was given to explain the slide gates and locks and how to install the various components involved. The goal was to spend 30-45 minutes on the meeting, with the intention to save several hours of confusion, unnecessary staging, and rework during the installation.

    Scott Jump, Product and Sales Engineer spearheads the scheduling and training involved. “Look, I’m a guy, and I’ll admit I don’t always read instructions until I get stuck. Our intention with this new offering is to provide tips and tricks to get your installers off the job site quickly while ensuring the installation is efficient and built as designed. We can scale the level of detail involved by project, per customer.”

    Robert Shell, who was introduced to SpaceGuard Products through the International Systems Dealer Association (ISDA Network) to which his company belongs, “As a business executive and salesman, it was refreshing to know that I could turn my attention forward to the next job, confident that my installers were well prepared to work with a new product. My team of installers was able to knock this installation out quicker than expected and without any problems. It’s a testament to the dedication that still exists with suppliers like SpaceGuard.”

    If you are interested in participating in a preinstallation meeting, please notify your customer service representative when placing your order, and they will coordinate the meeting prior to installation.

    It’s a hot summer’s day, and you check-in on an install for one of your best customers. They ordered a BeastWire Tool Cage. And of course, you hired the best installers because it’s important that everything goes as seamless as possible.

    After signing in at the front desk, your customer hears your there and he flies around the corner, red in the face with his eyebrows curled together. He spits every other word as he screams.

    The installers assembled the door on the wrong side. He reminds you that he specifically said the access door needed to swing out and hinge on the left. The “blanketly, blank” installers you hired installed the door swinging in and on the right! He wants to know what you plan to do to fix it.

    “And, I won’t pay for another door! That’s on you!”

    You remain calm. You sold your customer a BeastWire cage with a universal door. You ask him to give you five minutes to speak with the install crew, and you assure him it’ll be taken care of in no time.

    “Five minutes that’s all you’ve got!” He pivots on his heels and takes off down the hallway.

    After talking with the installers, they immediately unbolt the door assembly, flip the door around and then re-bolt the hinged door on the left and set it to swing-out.

    A few minutes later after straightening your tie, you swagger into your customer’s office standing taller, and with arms stretched out you burst with, “All fixed!”

    You become a hero. You can do no wrong. Life is good again. You make salesman of the year and move to Bali! All because you ordered BeastWire with a universal door that can swing in or out and hinge left or right. You felt confident that if there were any problems, your installers could fix it on the spot.

    And you were right! Yeah to you!

    GSA Teaming

    Representatives of Robinson Steel Company and SpaceGuard Products worked together to collectively supply wire mesh caging to the Marine Coatings and Corrosion Facility within the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Philadelphia. Three new caged areas were required to be built starting with some existing cage material on site.

    The customer required materials to be sold on SpaceGuard’s GSA Schedule, GS-07F-9907H to ensure the most competitive price available using pre-negotiated terms with US General Services Administration.

    To comply, SpaceGuard and Robinson Steel developed a comprehensive design that incorporated all standard sized (and therefore stocked) materials allowing the bid to qualify for GSA pricing, absent of any open market items.

    Robinson Steel’s proximity to the customer allowed for field verification which ended up saving both parties. There were several building columns and a plate on the floor that would have been impacted by the initial design. SpaceGuard’s engineers revised the drawings to account for these issues before RSC submitted the bid.

    “The SpaceGuard team offers the best solution for my customer’s needs and always provides us with layouts we can use with our quotes,” commented Zielger when asked about working with SpaceGuard, “this makes the sale a little easier and allows the customer to see these solutions in a professional drawing.”

    It was also determined during that same site visit that delivery via truckload would have caused several problems because. The material was instead delivered to Robinson Steel’s local warehouse, broken down, and hand delivered to the site by its installers.

    “There is nothing quite as important as having a local presence on these jobs as there so often are details that aren’t captured on prints or written requests. And in some cases, (like the NSWC project), having local warehousing space can make the difference between a good and rocky start to an installation,” commented Eddie, President of SpaceGuard Products.

    Once field verified and revisions completed, the order was processed through the Federal procurement system with shipments and invoicing tracked through the Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) information system.

    Materials were successfully delivered and installed by Robinson Steel’s installation team, and SpaceGuard promptly processed payment for installation plus distributor commissions.

    In the three months since this first successful installation, Robinson Steel and SpaceGuard have been called back out to quote three other projects in various facilities within the NSWC Philadelphia.
