Great Openings Product Additions

As we transition back to a more populated office environment, we have added a few items and made some product changes we want to share with you.  Pricing is updated in sell sheets and Price List.  2020 and other e-catalog updates will follow at a later date.

Trace Mobile File Center – we have added 5th wheels to this unit to replace the counterweight. This allows for easier movement in the work environment with a lighter cabinet. We are also providing an option to use the smaller caster size to match up aesthetically with other Trace storage products.

  • $150 List Price reduction!
  • Added a 37mm caster size to sync up with other GO Storage product heights
  • Removed 60lbs of counterweight – more environmentally responsible
  • A better, smoother operating cabinet without the extra weight
  • Starts at $1340 List

Pedestals – we have added a 5th wheel option to the cushion and metal box/file pedestals. Provides a lighter weight cabinet for user to position in the workspace.

  • Lighter, easier to position for the user without the counterweight
  • More environmentally responsible
  • Current pedestal with counterweight will remain as an option
  • This option is only on the box/file configuration

Height Adjustable Tables – More competitive price point for these products within the Great Openings offering. Perfect with our complementary Marty and Bill products.

  • Average $453 reduction in List Price
  • Programmable handset is included
  • Match the paint colors with your GO Storage products

Great Openings is expanding its manufacturing facility in beautiful Manistee, Michigan!

 

 

It has been 25 years since Great Openings has needed to expand its manufacturing facilities. We have done a fantastic job over the past decades utilizing lean manufacturing principles which enabled the company to grow and operate within our existing facilities. However the time has come to expand our facility that manufactures our locker product line. The growth we see in our locker product line over the last several years is the reason for this expansion.

 

 

We will be expanding our facility in Manistee (Fab Lite) by 40,000 sq., this will double the size of this facility. We make many of our Great Openings products at this plant which include Lockers and Large Case-goods. By adding an additional 40K SF of space, we are growing our capacity and our Locker offering to meet the increasing demand for Lockers in office, education, and healthcare applications. Facility expansion completion is December 2019. Stay tuned and we will keep you abreast of the building progress and expanding product offering.

 

By the way, this site has breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. If you are in the area, we would love to show you around.
