Viega will be adding another storage facility in McPherson and work will begin in March. This will be a 70,000-square foot building, which will act as a storage facility.
“They are calling it a racking system,” City Building Inspector Ryan Rank said. “It’s basically racks of storage and then it’s fully automated. If they need something from Rack 7 they just push a button and the robot gets it and brings it to them. It’s a pretty neat little system.”
Viega is using McPherson as its logistic center, which is why they want to add this storage facility with the racking system.
They will start working on building this storage facility probably in March, but they’re working on acquiring their city permit this week.
