McMurray Stern, known for their integrated design-build process and projects, is a storage company based in Santa Fe, California. They have created modern storage expertise that works for every industry, from agriculture and business to military and retail – they truly do everything.

At McMurray Stern, projects are managed by teams responsible for design, order placement, planning, site meetings, installation, and service and maintenance. McMurray Stern’s micro-fulfillment solutions are making it possible for smaller retailers and grocers to not only compete with the corporate giants, but exceed the customer expectation for convenience, speed, and accuracy.

This storage company has recently seen tremendously fast growth in automated solutions. Automated solutions are business solutions that are designed to replace slow, outdated manual processes with streamlined, automated workflows, leading to increased efficiency and accuracy. Companies need more shelf-life and storage space, and with the rise of e-commerce and technology, automated solutions are the perfect fit.

McMurray Stern has designed a few different techniques that are useful to any company and industry, such as AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles), Conveyors, VLMs (Vertical Lifts by McMurray Stern), Miniloads, Carousel Systems, Shuttle Systems, Picking Systems, Cranes, and Lift & Run Machines.

The organization uses these automated solutions with help from AI learning, which is used to provide personalized customer experience, faster turn-around time, error-free back-end processes, which run without human intervention, and security and compliance.

McMurray Stern’s Vertical Lifts (VLMs) are perfect for retail companies as they are designed to handle small materials and parts. They can handle anything from books, beauty products and medicine. They are known for being the most reasonable and fair-priced storage solution for businesses. They use 90% less floor space and require little to no training to operate.

Mini loads are also designed for smaller parts and materials. They are a type of storage-retrieval machine designed to hold lightweight whilst being relatively light in weight. Mini loads are perfect since they maximize space and can adapt to any storage or warehouse unit.

Designed to be efficient, reliable, and safe, Stern’s Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are perfect for big warehouses. They keep productivity fast while also incredibly safe and fast, and are made to transport heavy-duty materials and parts. Another plus is that AGVs are relatively low-cost in investments and flexible, making them the perfect storage system for big companies.

McMurray Stern and their automatic solutions are the future of storage. Simple storage, such as putting things away in cubbies, lockers, or on shelves, is starting to fade because solutions bring more opportunities and generally just more advanced ways to store things. Technology has become the new wave, as most companies are cost-conscious due to COVID but continue to grow at fast speeds. Robotic advancements, automatic solutions, VLM, AGV, and any of Stern’s techniques are the perfect way to maximize space but keep costs down.

McMurray Stern and their many respected partners have created a way to appeal to every company and industry’s needs. Their automatic solutions and many technological advancements are efficient, reliable, and productive.
