With a total area now measuring over 160,000 square feet, the Miner’s Inc. warehouse serves as the distribution hub for a fleet of 33 grocery stores, including Super One Foods, U-Save Foods and Woodland Marketplace Foods stores that comprise one of the largest independently-owned grocery chains in the Midwest. When Miner’s Inc. first contacted AK Material Handling Systems in June of 2014, it was apparent that the job wouldn’t be a run-of-the-mill project.
