HOJ Innovations Celebrates Continued Relationship with Deseret Book
HOJ Innovations, the leader in warehouse distribution consulting and material handling solutions, recently announced substantial changes and updates to the Deseret Book warehouse and distribution center. These changes are making Deseret Book’s distribution system both leaner and more responsive to their customers.
Tim Hoj, CEO of HOJ Innovations shared, “Deseret Book has been a client of ours for a few decades. It’s common that shifts in business require a physical adaptation to handle change. With our history on these successful tune-ups, Deseret Book recently engaged with our team to help them adapt and perform better under new market conditions. The team here at HOJ was able to add a whole new area and mezzanine to work in tandem with their pick and packing process.”
Scott Cornelius, Manager of the Deseret Book Distribution Center, shared, “The greatest thing we found working with HOJ was the teamwork. We were able to put them in the same room with our team, take their ideas and our ideas and create a synergy that has set us up for the future. With HOJ’s solution, we were able to incorporate the packing station right into the mezzanine and improve the flow using conveyors and carts to improve the overall response time.”
