In a country where two day shipping is almost considered the norm, it’s easy to forget about the facilities that make it all possible. When one shipping facility’s main chiller system broke down, and the workers’ union threatened to strike if cooling was not restored in a timely manner, it became crucial to quickly provide temporary cooling while repairs were made.
The mechanical contractor hired to repair the system quickly called American Spot Cooling & Power Rental, who responded promptly and was on site the same day. ASCAPR coordinated with the facility’s trucking department, and rental equipment was delivered the next day without blocking loading bays or interrupting the overall hustle and bustle of the facility. This was imperative because shipments could not be delayed, yet cooling needed to be restored as soon as possible. ASCAPR’s fast response time and ability to provide turnkey solutions meant that these needs were met. With a team of four technicians and one project manager they were able to install the rental cooling equipment in just two days.
The site included 8 80-ton rental air conditioners, as well as rental distribution panels and transformers in order to use the facility’s own electrical supply. From June until August of last year, the rental air conditioners provided cooling while the mechanical contractor was able to repair the broken system. During that time, technicians performed routine maintenance such as oil changes and air filter replacements. With the help of American Spot Cooling & Power Rental, this facility was able to keep up with all of their shipments of office supplies, BOGO jeggings, and more.
