Case Study

Pen Company of America, Garwood, NJ

Sq. Ft.
Storage Mezzanine



Pen Company of America, a family owned business since 1928, is a full service pen manufacturer that designs, molds, assembles, packs and ships over 100 million pens a year directly from their factory in New Jersey. They were looking for some additional space in their warehouse to make space for some new machinery that they purchased due to an acquisition and expansion.

Some of the challenges we had to work around were:

  • The mezzanine needed to be positioned against several walls with major obstructions
  • For code purposes, the mezzanine would need sprinklers installed underneath the deck with limited ceiling height.


The Mezzanine Company worked closely with Pen Company to come up with a design for a storage platform mezzanine that would serve their needs. We proposed an approximate 775 square foot platform. The mezzanine included an L-shaped OSHA staircase for employee access.

In order to provide access for a fork lift to load materials on and off the mezzanine, the mezzanine would include a 5’ sliding gate.

To work around some obstructions, the mezzanine had to be custom designed with special column placement and the ‘L’ shaped stairs.

Additionally, we worked closely with their sprinkler contractor to coordinate the inclusion of a sprinkler system beneath the mezzanine with low clearances.

Once the mezzanine was out of production, we arranged for a prompt delivery the week preceding the install weekend. The mezzanine was installed as planned, and on time, with minimum interruption to operations.

What Our Customers Say...

I have been extremely satisfied with the personal service received from The Mezzanine Company; they treat you like family. The accuracy of the order and the dates of delivery were right on and the installers were very accommodating and friendly. Everyone has been really helpful and easy to work with, especially being in the crunch for product that I was in. They will be my first call and my recommendation to anyone looking for the services they provide.
