The 30ih anniversary at Defense Depot Ogden finds thel big installation in (he midst of| modernizing its storage facilities fo an even higher degree of efficiency. •A Conversion of storage racks in Area Control Branch 2 is in the final stages. The number of storage locations in each warehouse has been greatly increased. The change began early in 1970. It resulted from, a ne^d of more storage space for items too large in size or quantity for the mechanized system, or of insufficient quantity to warrant bulk storage. When the work is completed, five warehouses will hold more than 200,000 storage locations «nd approximately 195,000 line items. The new racks are of a variety of materials. In some areas, box pallets have been banded together to form rows of racks. Some commercially built racks have been assembled, and others have been built of slotted steel, cut to size and bolted together. HEIGHT FEATURE An unusual feature is the height. In the middle section ol the warehouse, racks stand as high as 20 feet with as many a: six storage levels. Aisle space has been narrowed to five feet between "Ihe racks. A special machine, £ stock selector, is used to "pick' items. This machine is operated by one person and ranges from floor level to 20 feet in the air. A 12-foot safety ladder is also used for obtaining smaller items. Most of the items which meet requirements for rack slorage are also suited for shipment by parcel post. A packing area is situated in Warehouse 13A, with concentration of a large number of line items in a relatively small slorage area close the packing facilities helping to cut "vcosls. Erection of (he new racks should ba completed near the end of this year. New lighting fixtures will soon be installed.
