Utilizing just-in-time manufacturing principles, Prime Deli of Lewisville, Texas, assembles and delivers more that 20,000 sandwiches and salads a day for all 244 Dallas/Fort Worth-area 7-Eleven stores. Says Prime Deli plant manager Craig Weidner, "No other convenience-store chain can match our freshness guarantee." USDA-certified, Southland's freshness guarantee is made possible by Prime Deli's progressive facility design and highly choreographed system centered around quick assembly and chilled, even temperatures. Specified into the facility is a Low-Throw Series DuctSoxÂ® air distribution system.
By distributing 40 degrees F or less cool air evenly throughout the 24,000-square-foot facility, the DuctSox system plays an integral role in quality control and employee productivity at Prime Deli. To ensure even air distribution, the installation required a total of nine DuctSox, 50-feet long and 2 feet in diameter.
By controlling cold, localized drafts, DuctSox made Prime Deli a more comfortable place to work - a boost to employee morale and plant productivity
Prime Deli was pleased to discover that DuctSox also filter the diffused air. The USDA-approved DuctSox fabric provides a secondary line of protection against harmful bacteria and other airborne particulate - as small as 1-5 microns - above and beyond what their standard HVAC filtration system collects.
