FREE-STANDING MONORAIL, BURLINGTON | CASE STUDY
Wilcox Door Service Inc.

What's worse than getting bugs into a Food & Drug facility? Not much at all! In this case, a Bug Blocker Door was installed to ensure bugs, dust or debris are kept out of the facility during busy delivery times. Typically, you'll see blue bug doors that can be installed in front or behind regular warehouse shipping doors. As mentioned, these are a great addition to any facility that experiences high delivery times. Sectional doors can be kept open and the wear from constantly opening and closing the doors is drastically reduced by using the Bug Blocker Doors in their place. Why use these instead of regular Bug Doors? They're Food & Drug-approved and installed in front of the door opening. This unit is also complete with brush weatherstripping to help further keep out insects. Whether you have a big or small facility, Bug Doors are ideal sectional door add-on's. Ventilate your warehouse space, decrease the wear and tear on your doors especially during busy delivery …
Welcome to the Wilcox FitBit Challenge! New Year, New Goals. A common resolution is to be more active, eat healthier and overall, become more fit. What better way to do that than with a friendly office competition? We've divided everyone that has a FitBit (or similar device) into two teams. Both teams are a mixture of our Mississauga and Hamilton offices. This competition starts on Monday at 12:01 AM, ending on Friday at 11:59PM. Each team has a leader that is responsible for posting the total number of steps by noon each day. This will allow both teams to know where they stand and see if they can out-do each other. The team leader will post final scores by Saturday and the winning team will be revealed next week! Stay tuned to see this competition unveil. Good luck to all participants & Happy Stepping! Team leader Sara sent this video to her teammates to get the ball rolling! "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go... Keep Walking!!…
Making the Inaccessible, Accessible We're proud to introduce this month's volunteer, Tom Cunningham, our Business Development Coordinator. Tom chose to volunteer at this year's Edit: Design Expo in support of March of Dimes; "programs and services to maximize the independence and community participation of children & adults with disabilities." But why did he choose to support this cause? "Tom Cunningham (too tall) as he is affectionately known, was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) from his jaw to his toes at the age of 5. Forty-nine years later, he has been hospitalized about 40 times and had 4 hips, 4 knees and 2 shoulders replaced. Tom endures constant, chronic pain in 3 to 6 joints at all times, ranging in severity from day to day achiness." For over 65 years, March of Dimes has provided services from the medically-fragile, to seniors, families, caregivers, employers and health insurance companies. As you can imagine, Tom must overcom…
