Tremec gets more out of tool crib storage with LISTA storage solutions November 14, 2014


Tremec, Querretaro, Quertaro, Mexico. Leading manufacturer of high-quality manual transmissions for high performance vehicles and small trucks.


With no room to expand, but needing more space in their tool crib and tool pre-setting area (machine shop), Tremec needed help.


Replace inefficient open shelving, which housed items stored in boxes and steel bins; improve organization and inventory and parts tracking capabilities; make maximum use of limited square footage.


Tremec turned to LISTA for space-efficient tooling storage and workspace solutions. The company purchased shallow depth HS drawer storage cabinets and added counter tops to create multi-purpose, highly organized storage of CNC tools, components, extensions and tool clamps. A LISTA Storage Wall® system with vertical drawers is now home to Tremec's massive broach tools. Mobile CNC tool transporters safely store expensive cutting tools while allowing employees to easily move tools from preset to the machining center.


"LISTA worked closely with us to provide a complete storage and workspace solution that included modular drawer cabinets, Storage Wall® systems, CNC tool transporters, and workbenches. We've made the workspace substantially more user-friendly. We've also gained a new sense of organization, which translates to increased productivity."
