Message from our President for Marijuana Growing Operations
Before Marijuana Growing Operations...
" Twenty-five years ago, we were providing mobile shelving solutions to law firms, government agencies, and into the health care market for records storage. Since then, the computer has become an enormous success, and those paper records would primarily become digitized. Since then we have moved our focus to storage, primarily warehouse storage solutions being pallet rack and boltless shelving. It was an excellent find and a significant segment of business growth.
We also learned there was a need for security cages, modular buildings, automated storage solutions, and much more, which has provided much more impressive growth to our business. Discoveries in the warehouse and the attached market have lead us places never dreamed of, including lab opportunities. It spawned a vast new industry for us, Labs USA. "
After the Discovery of Mobile Shelving for Marijuana...
" Now NationWide Shelving will be sellingmobile shelvingfor growing operations, so far fetched, but here we are providing mobile shelving so that marijuana growing operations can maximize the harvest. Not only do marijuana growers use mobile shelving but growing operations of all kinds are finding the need for shelving solutions to optimize the use of space. "
Jim Gault President
Planning Space Utilizing Mobile Shelving for Marijuana
Growth in marijuana being recreationally legalized calls for an increase in competitors making it harder to compete with other dispensaries that also grow marijuana, some clinics promote new strains or come up with unique sales tactics to get more customers — the best way to be able to compete in producing the most marijuana to sell.
Nothing competes better than numbers. With most weed facilities taking place in ground-level warehouses, it limits the amount of growth. A way around this is to look for multi-floor warehouses or to build a second floor. Not only is it costly, but it creates a new work environment for employees that isn’t time-efficient. With pricey real estate markets even, a single warehouse is expensive.
The most critical consideration in evaluating a potential grow space is ensuring proper ventilation for your crops. Marijuana plants require much light, which typically emits a tremendous amount of heat. Without adequate ventilation and air exchange, producers risk cooking their harvest or limiting yields due to excess humidity, temperature, or oxygen.
Our Solution for Growing Operations Using Mobile Shelving for Marijuana
Mobile shelving can allow each leaf to keep in direct light, as well as having enough space to create constant airflow. Mobile shelving avoids crowded marijuana plants that inhibit air movement, which can result in the growth of mold, mildew, and other pests.
Mobile shelving’s unique space-saving design provides marijuana plants the extra care and attention it needs. The shelving offers accessibility from a full 360 degrees around the plant. The aisles need to be wide enough to allow multiple employees to work from all angles.
Typical shelving has aisles between each unit, taking up precious space. Mobile shelving eliminates the need for numerous aisles, thus adding more space to plant additional marijuana and increase profits.
Proper spacing ensures they get the most exposure to light to produces bud formation. Indoor marijuana growing operations must be in an enclosed and secure facility with functional windows, doors, rigid or semi-rigid walls, and a roof. Running successful commercial weed growing operations is a challenge because growers must maintain a higher level of control over humidity, available light, and pests in an indoor environment. Maintaining proper light levels, staying as energy-efficient, and saving valuable space are top priorities for commercial marijuana production operations.
