The wedding. On October 22nd, Carl Greeno watched his wife, Erin, walk down the aisle. The wedding was at Mustard Seed Gardens in Noblesville, IN. Carl and Erin had dated for 6 years before getting engaged. Carl, we wish you and Erin a lifetime full of love and happiness!

The babies. Andy and Nicole Goebes were given the opportunity to adopt a beautiful little girl, Riley, in May.

Billy and Jenna Powers welcomed their 2nd little one, Madison, into the world in June. She was 7lbs 15oz and 20 inches long. Kennedy, the big sister, has been over the moon with her little sister.

Nate and Jen Storey had their 3rd child this year. Samuel was born in September weighing 8lbs 6 oz. and 21.5 inches long.

Finally, Dan and Becky Storey also welcomed their 3rd bundle of joy to the family this year. Luca was born in November weighing in at 8lbs 2 oz. and 20.25 inches.

Holiday Card & Inventory Hours

Storage Solutions Inventory & Holiday Hours

Inventory and Holiday Hours

We cannot believe that it is already December, and we want to thank you for a great 2017! Without you, none of what we do would be possible. As we approach the end of the year, we are now looking to set up an even better 2018! With the end of the year comes everyone’s favorite time of the year, time to count inventory!

Why is it necessary to count inventory every year?  We take the time to count each and every one of our products manually to ensure quality and accounting accuracy. We do this to ensure that we can be the best business partner we can be for you.

While we are busy counting inventory at our headquarters in Westfield, IN, our response time may be slightly delayed as we prepare to serve you in 2018. Physical inventory will take place on Tuesday, December 19th through Thursday, December 21st.

In addition to physical inventory, we will be out of the office Monday, December 25th in observance of the Christmas Holiday, and will return to the office on Tuesday, December 26th. Finally, we will be out of the office Monday, January 1st in celebration of the new year and will be returning Tuesday, January 2nd.

While we may not be in the office, we are still eager and ready to serve you and will follow up on any inquiries as quickly as we can. While we are out, you can still check out all of our great products here! We look forward to working with you in 2018, and Happy Holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving From Storage Solutions!

It’s unbelievable that it’s almost the Christmas season, but that can’t start before we celebrate Thanksgiving! This holiday is a great time to relax and recharge around friends and family members with a nice meal and some football.

Whether Thanksgiving means watching football, eating turkey, crazy family get-togethers or kicking off Christmas shopping on Black Friday, we hope you take the time to enjoy those that mean the most to you. We are thankful for our amazing staff, great clients and wonderful network of partners. Without these groups of people, none of what we do could be possible. So thank you for your tireless efforts, continuous dependability and belief in us.

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, our office will be closed Thursday, November 23 and Friday, November 24. The office will reopen on Monday, November 27. We hope you have a wonderful holiday! We also look forward to helping you wrap up 2017 on a high note!

Tight Deadlines in Flint Michigan

Project Spotlight: Tight Deadlines in Flint, Michigan

Have hard deadlines? Need to continue operations during install? No problem! Storage Solutions is here to accommodate all of your warehouse needs and make sure your project goes off without a hitch. Let us be the ones to take on your project!

Our latest warehouse project took us up north to Pure Michigan. With tight deadlines and the need to stay open during installation, we had our work cut out for us.

Products Installed:

  • Pallet Racking with Skatewheel
  • Carton Flow
  • Wire Mesh Backstops
  • Wire Decking

Project Details

The customer had a firm deadline for the project’s completion. Storage Solutions had to install runs of racking in one area, then move to another area to install. This was so the customer associates could load the racking and train on picking while we completed the install. This was an active facility throughout the entire project.

SSI install leaders and project managers worked directly with the customer to ensure a fluid transition.  This allowed us to keep install moving along efficiently while the customer could also stay up with daily operations. In the end, we were able to complete the project 4 days ahead of schedule!

The days are getting shorter, while the nights are getting colder! Winter is coming… As winter rolls in and brings the winter blues, this season’s sports bring the fire! From basketball, volleyball, and cheerleading, here at Storage Solutions, we have some amazing employees who work as coaches as well. With that, we would like to highlight the winter sports coaches by showcasing their dedication!

Q3 Employees of the Quarter

Congrats to Employees of the Quarter: Kip & Serafin!

As the weather starts to cool off, we would like to extend huge congratulations to our employees of Q3, Kip Lacy and Serafin Rodriguez! Their outstanding work and achievements are what make Storage Solutions such a great company!

Kip Lacy, Installation Project Manager

Kip joined SSI in January of 2017 as the newest member of our WSI installation team. As one of the leaders of the WSI team, Kip has proven to be an invaluable member of Storage Solutions. Kip has proven time and time again that he is willing to go above and beyond to make sure projects go off without a hitch.

In his downtime, Kip likes to spend time with his wife, two daughters, and his Boston Terrier, Frenchie. You can also find Kip outdoors, traveling or eating Indian food. Even though he sports his Michigan Wolverines hat, he says that he is open to supporting any college team.

Serafin Rodriguez, WSI Crew Leader

Our other employee of the quarter also comes from the WSI team. Serafin Rodriguez is a Crew Leader that has been with SSI since 2012. Serafin stepped up when we needed him most, and we couldn’t be more proud. When asked to become a new crew leader in August, Serafin jumped on the opportunity and has flourished in his new role. As a Crew Leader, Serafin demonstrates on a daily basis why he is such a strong leader and a great employee.

While he’s not at work, Serafin says that he likes to relax and spend some quality time with his family.

Above all, Storage Solutions loves to recognize our employees for their determination, so thank you to Kip and Serafin for their outstanding work!
