Warrendale, PA - December 6, 2023 – Hänel Storage Systems, a leader in the manufacture and integration of automated vertical storage solutions throughout North America, has pledged a donation to CASA of Allegheny County that will help support abused and neglected children.
CASA of Allegheny County advocates for the rights and well-being of victimized children within the child welfare system, mobilizes community volunteers to make a difference in their neighborhoods, and is the only program that offers such extensive community involvement in the lives of society’s most vulnerable members.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is appointed by a judge to be the voice of a child in court and serves as the "eyes and ears" of the judge in child welfare cases. While caseworkers are employed by state and county governments to work multiple cases at a time, CASA volunteers are assigned to only one child or family in order to better study each child’s individual needs and provide individualized attention. This model of best-interest advocacy has a profound and life-changing impact, ensuring that these children are kept safe and given the opportunity to flourish.
To help vulnerable children during the holiday season, Hänel donated $1400 to be directed toward meals for CASA children and their families. This donation will have a direct impact on their health and well-being during these stressful and uncertain times.
Hänel is a longstanding supporter of CASA and its mission, having sponsored and participated in the organization’s annual Superhero Run for several years.
About Hanel Storage System
Founded in Germany in 1953, Hänel’s North American headquarters has been located in Pittsburgh, PA since it was established in 1984. Hänel Storage Systems specializes in the design and engineering of Rotomat® vertical storage carousels and Lean-Lift® Vertical Lift Modules for a wide range of industries and applications. Hänel provides sales, service, and technical support to North and South America through a network of factory-trained channel partners and service providers.
Introduced in 1957, the Rotomat® Vertical Carousel is based on the Ferris Wheel principle. Inventory is stored in a series of carriers that rotate within an enclosed unit and are accessed at a single opening. This vertical “goods to the user” concept improves productivity, lowers costs, increases security, and saves valuable floor space.
Introduced in 1994, the Lean-Lift® Vertical Lift Module stores inventory on trays that are automatically measured for height each time they enter the unit. A vertical extractor places each tray within the unit in a location that maximizes available storage space. Trays can be equipped with dividers, totes, bins, and specialized holders to store any type of inventory.
