At Corporate Jet Support, the ceiling’s the limit for storage thanks to LISTA® cabinets February 05, 2012
Corporate Jet Support (CJS) is a wholesaler of high-quality airplane parts in Moonachie, NJ.
Chris Breitweiser, owner of CJS, says it best; “We ran out of room. We had grown out of our existing storage space and were forced to contemplate either moving or expanding our warehouse through expensive construction.”

The problem, as it turned out, was not one of insufficient storage space. CJS’s antiquated, conventional shelving and pallets were not making the best use of the available 10,000 square feet.

Replace low-density storage with a modular storage system that could take full advantage of CJS’s available underutilized vertical space, while providing secure, dust-free, organized, and highly-flexible storage for the company’s entire inventory.

CJS purchased a full squadron of 250 storage cabinets, plus two Storage Wall® systems from LISTA. The high density 22.5” deep cabinets are designed to make item retrieval easier and reduce reach and strain, with drawers that extend completely from the housing to allow easy access to all the contents. The cabinets’ 18” deep drawers require only 36” of aisle space for full drawer extension, so required aisle space is minimized.

“We were able to maximize our warehouse height and maintain the flexibility to put thousands of items in a very limited area. We can now hold in one drawer what we previously were storing in three units of conventional shelving. We now have 35,000 different locations in which to store inventory. With our old method, we were only able to store one third of that amount,” said Chris Breitweiser.

Breitweiser particularly likes that our cabinets come with a built-in highly secure locking system. He said, “We deal in used aircraft parts for planes that are no longer being made, so many of the parts are difficult to find and very valuable. It’s important to keep a close watch on inventory and to maintain a worry-free security system.”

CJS captured 10 feet of vertical space by stacking two cabinets atop each other. LISTA custom-configured the cabinet drawer interiors using its flexible, modular dividing and partitioning accessories to accommodate the items CJS would be storing─everything from small washers to valves, generators, and actuators.

“All the units we purchased from LISTA are rock solid and very easy to keep well organized. With the combination of the different sizes of LISTA cabinets, CJS is now able to segregate different types of inventory, while maintaining plenty of room for growth in an area that we thought we had outgrown. I am extremely pleased with the benefits we’ve gained after switching to the LISTA storage system ─ benefits of superior organization, inventory control, and fast retrieval that have made us a lot more productive. They are a great company, and they make a strong, durable heavy-gauge steel product. It’s a relief knowing that, with proper care, our LISTA storage system can truly last forever,” said Chris Breitweiser.
