Please see all the exciting new videos, recent projects, and blog posts we are creating at P Strouth LLC.  All the projects are represented through Carolina Material Handling. I am trying to build up a great collection of material handling applications and products to showcase.  Most of this media represents projects we are doing with our customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.  I actually have a collection of photos from the 21 years of material handling projects that I have developed.  There are too many to post here on the website but I can email and describe many of the various applications from the past and look forward to adding many more in the future.  Typically I tried to add one video or one blog post per week.  I am happy to answer any questions. 
How to Create a Modular Office Space in a Production Area:  This is a blog post on how we designed and installed a modular office system by Starrco in a local customer's plant in Greensboro, Burlington, Whitsett, North Carolina area.  The modular office is engineered to be assemble quickly and provide more office space but in this project it is being used as a quality control room.
Modular office systems are a great way to quickly add a controlled room on the production floor or warehouse area of a plant.  These engineered modular buidling systems are inexpensive and designed to be installed as an office, conference room, quality control room, clean room, paint booth, and many other modular building applications
Portable Modular Building System used as an Inplant Office in the middle of a production area.  This modular building shipped to our customer in Mebane, NC already assemble and ready to use.  We moved it into place with a large forklift and then had it wired to operate as a typical office.  The handrail mounted around the modular inplant office is to help protect the employees and the office.
