It was planned on the very first blueprint. Installing heavy-duty technician workstations and workbenches in every service bays was a smart investment and the end result is stunning. In the 8 service bays of the 16 000 ft² facilities, no tools are left on top of toolboxes and no cluttered and dusty shelving can be seen. The workshop is a reflection of the company's brand new headquarters which is, simply put, stunning. Another amazing project lead by local Metalia distributor Groupe Maska.
Metalia's industrial workstations and workbenches are more than simple tool chests - they are the starting point toward an outstanding workshop organization. Each heavy-duty drawer hold 440 lb of tools, equipment and accessories. Top cabinets hold cans and bottles. Tall storage units are ideal for larger fluid containers, special tool case or the technician's clothing. For Accès Location+, every technician is more productive when they have all their tools and equipment at hand. This translates to less time loss, more maintenance per day and more profits - the essence of the well-known 5S organization method.
It's no secret why car dealerships are all leaning toward uniform and standardized workbenches. Since transparency brings customers to see inside the garage through glass walled waiting area, the dealership's manager strives to keep the shop looking as tidy as possible. In this way, Accès Location+ is ahead of the heavy equipment industry. Gone are individual, mismatched toolboxes. When everything is stored in its place, the whole workshop looks much cleaner, impressing customers and keeping the general working environment much more positive.
When the owner invest to improve the work environment, everyone notices it. In the case of Accès Location+ , technicians benefit directly from this major improvement. Not only do they get a private and secure space to store their personal items, but having a supplied tool box means that younger technicians don't need to invest thousands of dollars to buy one - That is a strong incentive to join the company. Metalia also had Accès Location+ logo laser cut into the stainless steel back panels, improving brand recognition and sense of belonging.
