This project was completed in Vernon, CA for Whole Foods Market Refrigerated Distribution Center. We provided complete design assistance, as well as, loading dock equipment to provide the safest, best insulated, and most efficient dock operation possible while keeping the low maintenance cost for the owner.  The most challenging part to this project was the opposing temperatures of SoCal between the refridgerated docks and the trailers.  Their were also some inconsistencies with the trailers, some had lift gates and others didn't.  Upon completion of this project both of these challenges were resolved and the finished product was a success!

Equipment Installed:

  • Poweramp VS levelers
  • CentraPower, operating several levelers from one source
  • All embed steel
  • Dock Seals
  • Metal Dock Hoods
  • GMR Safety Chocking System
  • Insulated Dock Doors
  • Door Operators
  • Control Stanchions
  • Integrated controls for equipment operation sequencing, safety, and durability

As we always do, Pace Material Handling partnered with Systems Poweramp to take ownership of all recommendations for the best solutions.  Systems Poweramp intergrated all dock designs, including embed steel, electrical conduit, hydraulic chases, ect., into the architectural CAD drawings, color-coding each trade's responsibilities.  Pace was then able to provide project management assistance for the dock design and construction, working closely with the architect, general contractor, and subcontractors to make sure all aspects of the project were in the owner's best interest.  And, Pace provided installation, startup and training for all dock equipment.
