It seems every time the medical or laboratory community needs a new kind of shelving. Well they release it! Its like they invent it before anyone even knows they need it.

Alright here we go.

I’m sure I had heard of metro before but it was at an ISDA meeting I got a better feel for who they are and what they do. We had a dealer in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania that was friends with the guy who invented metro. As I recall the story as the deal was inked for ISDA and Material Handling USA to handle the line our executive director and a board member even went to his house to chat and work out the details. 

And gosh what a great surprise after all these years! i mean day after day year after year they think of innovative ideas and new products that meet real needs in the marketplace. I always wondered how someone could improve the bicycle or snow skis so radically every year. but never knew anyone in the shelving industry that was doing  the same. i mean most shelving manufacturers big deal is a new color. is it a little more expensive? maybe, but not always and sometimes it fits the need the best of all choices so there really is not anything to compare it to. in that case i guess it is highest and lowest price. 

we are very grateful for the opportunity to be an authorized dealer and take this responsibility very seriously. it is quite an investment on our part as well. it takes a great deal of time to keep our marketing material up to date because of how innovative and how large their product offering is. updating the Material Handling USA website is one thing but we also have to keep our shopping cart updated as well as our marketing and sales staffs.

metro general
We are located in the city of Cuauhtémoc Chihuahua, near the US border, a dynamic city with important education centers and a transportation network allowing for easy transfer of raw material and finished products. Within our plant, every area is a reflection of constant innovation and development with state of the art, technology and automated equipment integrated for efficient lean manufacturing. Our production processes, along with the skill of highly trained personnel, allow us to obtain optimal results in our cutting, welding, finishing and plastic injection processes. At the cutting in welding equipment. We cut, prepare and pre fabricate one by one the parts forming the shelving units. Afterwards. During the manufacturing process, we perform subassemblies and weld the collars that will join the trays. In the accessories area, we weld pre-fabricated metallic components for every product and adherence to engineering drawings and specifications. In the post area, we groove one inch steel posts and cut them to the customer’s required length. Thus, once we have made the shelf posts and metallic accessories, we send them to the finishing area and there we apply the final finish. It is a versatile process with multiple capabilities. Currently, our products receive either powder coating, electro polishing, nickel and chrome plating zinc process in olive drab or bright. Another important process area at Inter Metro Mexico is the injection molding area by using modern presses with capacities ranging from 280 to 1000 tons. The plastic subcomponents that are added to the metal shelving units we manufacture are molded, giving our products the versatility required by the customer.

Once the manufacturing work is finished, the products are sent to the packaging area. They are packed in cardboard boxes with their components and assembly instructions. Then they are placed on wood pallets and moved to the shipping area and are placed in trailer containers that will be shipped to their corresponding distribution center. We ship approximately 24,800 pieces daily. The City of Acuna is located in the Mexican state of Coahuila. It stands next to the Rio Grande River, which separates it from the city of Del Rio, Texas. Blow molding is a process where the material is accumulated in the heads of the machine and then it’s expelled inside the machine for the blowing process. And then pressed by two cavities, the conveyor arm enters the blowing process to hold the pieces. Once the blowing cycle is finished, the conveyor arm removes the parts from the machine and delivers them to the operator. The operator removes the plastic surplus and inspects the part. Debris is it and then packs it in the container. Metro Mac’s shelf assembly process consists of a continuous line flow through our frame assembly machine. Once the ends are inserted, it is then placed onto the conveyor until it reaches an automatic screwdriver for the placement of stainless steel screws and continues with the assembly of the central beams, grids or solid shelves according to the preference of our customers. Our Med and lifeline cart assembly lines are very efficient assembly lines where our employees, through the performance excellence process, have made significant improvements in quality and productivity.

The main structure of the car is formed with the frames from which four sizes are derived and the tires are added. The corners and the car closing system are added to the unit, followed by the assembly of the plastic side panels. Once fastened the drawer, slides and drawers are installed, meeting the customer’s specific configuration. Here the card is cleaned off and then the respective manuals and labels are added according to the car model. All the accessories that the customer requested are placed onto the cart. Each cart is validated such that it is built according to the work order and that it contains all the accessories requested by the customer to finally pass it to the packing area. In Acuna, we have 13 injection molding presses ranging from 100 to 2000 tons. The raw material is raised by vacuum to fill the hopper. The pieces then formed by injecting material at high temperatures. Finally, the piece is cooled through the chiller system for a few seconds. Protrusion is a continuous automated and close mold process. The materials are impregnated by a resin bath located at the entrance of the mold. The product is then pulled by a hydraulic system until it is cut into sections through a system of saws which are programmed to cut the profiles to the desired length. In northeastern Pennsylvania resides the Wilkes-Barre manufacturing facility, which is home to all sheet metal based products, including the Manufacturing and Assembly of the Food Service Cabinet line and the Starship’s Assembly Lines.

The Wilkes-Barre facility contains a wide array of sheet metal fabrication processes in order to meet the wide array of customer requirements and expectations. Those processes include state of the art fiber, laser cutting capabilities to meet the individual profiles and requirements of thousands of different parts. Integrated numerical control technology that combines mechanical punching with laser profiling. Many standard processes, including punching, shearing, polishing and graining, as well as state of the art numerically controlled, precision forming technology. As is also the case for our wire products, Metro also has made a substantial investment in plating and powder coating equipment in order to epoxy coat hundreds of different parts in over 20 different colors. This process is utilized for products and cabinetry stars, as well as hundreds of stand alone components. Inter metro Wilkes-Barre is also proud to be the sole supplier to an ever growing sheet metal based product offering that includes stainless steel, welded assembly, surgical case cards for the health care industry, banquet cabinets for the food service industry, food service cabinets both in the non insulated series one line and the Insulation Armor Series three line. Highly configurable, high performance lines such as Series four, six, eight and nine, as well as DT and R series transport cabinets. Wilkes-barre is also the manufacturing home for the wide range of stars, product offerings for both the health care as well as the commercial markets in both the USA as well as across the world.
