Some slow down as they approach age 60. Others re-
main spry and vibrant.
The Greenville, S.C.-based entity known as Engineered
Products LLC is decidedly the latter.
Just one year shy of its 60-year milestone, the com-
pany that got its start in the mid-1950s has continued
into its second century thanks to a still-evident ability
to create application-specific storage solutions that fit
the individual needs and budget of each respective cli-
The one-size-does-not-fit-all approach begins with the
mantra that because no two problems are identical,
the remedies created to handle them shouldn’t be ei-
ther. Ideally, the mindset instantly creates a level of
trust with clients, which has served the company well
even in its graying years.
“We work with our customers so, as they innovate new
products, we design our systems to meet both their
needs and the needs of their customers, too,” said
Scott Hall, vice president of operations. “Because ev-
erything we do is a custom-built system, we don’t stock
inventory to quick ship. We build to meet our custom-
ers’ needs.”
The approach necessitates staying ahead of the curve
on the inside, too.
“We have to continually maintain and upgrade our as-
sets to make our company more efficient and meet our
quality standards as the demand on that continues to
grow,” he said. “The one thing that has changed and
is not going away is that lead times are critical. So we
have to be innovative in a way that we can manage
large projects with a great size and still be able to
meet lead times and critical milestones.”
