Whenever a company grows beyond its current warehouse capabilities the first thought is “We need to move to a larger warehouse” or “We need to purchase more warehouse space”. However, many people don’t realize there are other solutions to maximizing one’s current warehouse space without having to move from your current location. Mezzanines are the ideal solution for those who want to increase warehouse space in a cost-effective way, without the hassle and expenses of moving.




There are five major benefits of choosing to install a mezzanine in your warehouse:


  • Easily increase floor space by installing a mezzanine in your warehouse or storage facility. This will allow you to reduce the number of items that may get in the way of warehouse operations on the main floor.
  • Cost-effectiveness. Mezzanines are almost always less expensive than deciding to buy or lease a larger warehouse. Especially when you factor in the cost of moving all your product and equipment from one location to another, which may slow down or even halt production. Mezzanines can be installed while a warehouse is still operating at 100% with little to no disruption to a normal day. This will allow employees to continue to operate at the maximum productivity level.
  • Mezzanines have many purposes, and various uses outside of the warehouse. They can be used to increased retail space, used to set up product displays, create sample areas, used to create new office spaces, or even use to create a separate area for meetings with in-plant offices.
  • Mezzanines are modular and customizable making them ideal for any warehouse or storage facility. No two warehouses are the same and will have different needs depending on their inventory or services. Mezzanines can be customized to your facilities particular needs making them the perfect solution.
  • Increased productivity and efficiency in your warehouse or storage facility with a mezzanine. Appropriate storage space allows warehouse floors to be clean of clutter, debris, and inventory, giving sufficient space for forklifts and workers to fulfill day-to-day duties with the speed and precision needed for ideal warehouse functions.

As you can see there are numerous reasons that selecting a mezzanine may be an ideal solution for your business and your warehouse. Mezzanines are flexible and can be used for both storage, possible office space, and a variety of other solutions. They can double the functional square footage of your building if you choose to build one. Should you need more space overtime, mezzanines can expand, adapting to the specific needs of your business.
