    Heavy Equipment Repair

    HOJ is committed to servicing equipment. We are a complete service provider with a machine shop, heavy overhead crane bays, and over 50 full-time service technicians — with average tenure of 8 years with HOJ.

    We service repair shops, semi trucks, tractors, earth moving and mining equipment and more. We can plan and supply service bays with overhead crane hoists or jib crane access, and design the supply parts storage room or tool crib with required parts storage shelving. Our service bay designs benefit from paying special attention to the clearances between the overhead door tracks and your crane runway — to maintain your required crane hook heights. Early coordination with your architect, contractor and HOJ Innovations will get you the product you need, correctly integrated into your building and the service operation.

    Selecting the proper racking type (steel shelving, particle board rivet rite or catwalk second level storage) is key to making your space work. We have the experience to know what shelving types best suit your storage requirements. If security is an important factor, we provide welded wire enclosures that can enclose storage areas, tool cribs or racking shelves.

    Wholesale & Retail Distribution

    This is an area where HOJ Innovation brings a comprehensive knowledge of the options available for the distribution industry. We are dedicated to the entire material handling experience and all the equipment associated with outfitting a warehouse. With 50 years of business experience and hundreds of years of combined knowledge on our team, we have seen, designed and built every type of warehouse operation.

    We have a professional engineering staff for distribution center design and use data analysis for each application to get the system design correct for each client. Selecting building column centers that work well with rack designs is critical to getting the pallet locations you need access to, while maintaining a designed aisle width for your forklifts.

    We have specialists to cover all the functional areas of the building. One of the first areas of expertise starts at the doors and docks that open the gate to bring the product in and out of the warehouse. HOJ Innovation is a dual line distributor of Entrematic Engineered Solutions, offering the Serco and Kelley dock equipment. We help owners decide whether they should be using hydraulic, airbag or mechanical dock equipment. The door size and options for seals and shelters will be carefully selected to match the dock and trailer activity and products being shipped.

    Racking in a distribution center can be average but with some design and layout work we make it excellent by identifying good process flow. We are experts at looking at every angle and gaining the extra 10% that turns average into excellent. We can decide when different rack types will have a positive return on investment. We provide Selective Rack, Double Deep Rack, Drive In, Push back and Pallet Flow Through in Roll Formed, Structural and Tube Rack.

    Maximizing the cube and getting the building columns to work out well with the racking and forklift aisle is key to a successful rack installation. We coordinate with architects and contractors in the early stages to make sure everyone is on the same page.
