Challenge

  • 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.

Strategy

  • 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.
