Army Reserve Unit in Georgia Modernizing for Better Parachute Storage and Mobilization
Even in an environment as steeped in tradition and repetition as the U.S. Army, sometimes there’s room for newness. After more than a quarter century of storing parachutes destined for bases around the world in open cardboard boxes, this client recognized the opportunity to transform an essential part of its storage stratagem while better serving the troops in the field. Experience and expertise combined to introduce an innovative solution that accomplished multiple goals while opening up options for future successes.
HOW STORAGE MADE THE DIFFERENCE.
Entrusted with the task of shipping parachutes to locations around the globe, an Army Reserve Unit in Georgia decided to upgrade their storage set-up with ingenuity. By choosing to partner with Patterson Pope and Spacesaver, they selected steel Parachute Containers that held more equipment, could be better secured and more easily trucked to the nearby airports from where they embarked on their missions.
“Knowing that we, in some small way, help the U.S. Military perform its heroic duties around the world on a daily basis is a pretty awesome feeling. It’s the kind of ‘stuff” that drives us.”
– Bob Tyler, Patterson Pope sales representative
