Wolverine World Wide, a leading manufacturer of casual and work footwear, asked Rockford Construction to build a new distribution center. The center was designed around the large order picking equipment necessary for distribution.
The pre-engineered metal building with a 35-foot clear ceiling height features 112,000 sq. ft. of super flat floors to accommodate the wire-guided order picking system. Three conveyor lines serve 12 truck docks. The project also contains a mezzanine, trash conveyor, and expansion capabilities. A 133,000 sq. ft. expansion project was completed in 2003, bringing the total square footage to 360,000.
