In 2005, the Operations group teamed with Shaver Industries to install InsulWall to zone their cooler areas.
In 2010, the Operations team determined that a larger 36° F cooler and a new ice cream room was needed.
Reconfigure the two cooler areas into one to create a more efficient pick/ pack process.
Create new -20° F ice cream room within the freezer reusing existing InsulWall panels from the cooler and purchasing additional panels.
“We have been waiting to build our ice cream freezer until we reconfigured the cooler area — knowing we’d have extra InsulWall panels available from the cooler. We were able to reuse all of the panels and order just 7 InsulWall panels to complete our 35’ x 60’ ice cream freezer,” commented the Director of Facility Operations.
Many factors affect price including labor, freight, facility, etc. This is an average cost comparison of removing a 31 ft. wall and building a new 60 ft. wall.
