Southworth Scissor Dock Lift for Hospital

A Massachusetts hospital needed to replace their existing scissor dock that been in use for a long time. The dock that the hospital was using had rusted out, was unsafe, and needed constant repairs as it also leaked.

The BODE team recommended the existing deck be replaced with a Southworth Scissor Dock Lift. After discussions with the client concerning the benefits of the Southworth Scissor Dock Lift, the hospital agreed that this was the best solution and BODE’s installation team removed the existing dock lift and replaced it with it with the Southworth Scissor Dock Lift.

Ease of Ordering with Bode's Online Catalog

The customer, a general contractor, needed to buy office equipment such as storage units, a liquid safety cabinet, wire decks and more that were included in the price quoted to the end user – the project owner.

Our contractor client, located in New Hampshire, ordered everything needed using BODE’s online ordering system that is known for simplicity, ease of use, and intuitive search tools.

BODE is the go-to New England supplier of storage solutions both large and small.

Custom Brazing Rack

BODE was called by a New Hampshire manufacturing company to design a brazing fixture rack to be used for storing all the brazing fixtures used in the Brazing Department of the manufacturer’s plant. A key requirement was the ability to see all brazing fixtures for easy access by employees.

BODE worked on the custom design of the brazing rack with a local welding & fabricating company, Bri-Weld, to design the rack needed by the manufacturer.

Reflecting on MHEDA 2016

This year’s Material Handling Equipment Distributors of America (MHEDA) Convention was filled with informative sessions and fun events. Our President, Scott Fawcett, had a great time there connecting with old friends and meeting new people; he especially enjoyed his role as an Intern Ambassador and Roundtable Discussion Facilitator at the event.


“The communication and coordination on this project was outstanding. The Bode team not only provided regular updates on the progress of each install, they worked in such a professional and unobtrusive manner, never impeding the day-to-day work in any of our facilities. I have complete confidence in the knowledge and abilities of the Bode team. For anything material handling or warehouse related, Bode is where I go.”
