Power Plant Sees 70 Percent Space Savings with Vidmar

STAK® System and Cabinets make storage more efficient

Allentown, PA — Generating electricity on a full-time basis throughout the state of Nebraska is a demanding job. So when Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) added a new warehouse to their four base-load plant system they partnered with Vidmar to outfit the facility for ample growth.


By using custom-built Vidmar cabinets OPPD benefitted from a 70% space savings, increased storage in less space, and improved organization with their workbenches.


The addition of a STAK® System improved workplace efficiency by providing ample storage space and the versatility to store a host of items. With the space that was saved by using the STAK System and cabinets, OPPD was able to implement the use of pallet racking.


“Now that we have proper storage, everything is consolidated into a smaller footprint, so there is less walking around, with stored parts always within easy reach and full view," says Chris L. Rush, North Omaha Stores Material Management Division. "This means an improved bottom line for Omaha Public Power and fast, effortless retrieval for the craft guys.”

Because of the results, OPPD decided to incorporate Vidmar product in two more plants. OPPD has since hosted several tours with other facility management seeking insight on how to improve work areas and make employees more efficient.
