Legacy Jumps, Runs, Wins for United Way

Legacy was the Fourth Place winner in the fifth annual “Virtual United Way 5K” sponsored by Unigroup. This event raised more than $30,000 for the United Way, a portion of which went to the United Way of Silicon Valley.

The Virtual 5k is a Unigroup program with agents around the country competing against each other through employees’ physical fitness activities while raising funds for the agency’s local United Way. 15 agents participated in this Virtual 5K. For every 20 minutes of exercise reported by each team member, the team earned one point.

Legacy also had two of the top five individual winners – these people earned the highest total points. The program started on Sept 10 and ended Dec 7, 2012.

Legacy’s Crating Solution Saves the Day!

When transporting sensitive equipment, the most important thing to consider is the shock absorption, as well as the x, y, and z movement of the item in the crate.   

One such situation had Legacy redesigning crates to alleviate damage to the equipment and the systems inside.

The client’s previous crate design had shock absorption material built into the base pallet. When secured in the trailer, the x and y movement was inhibited, thus causing the system to move as a whole left and right, back and forth, inside the crate. With the oversized base, the crate would come away from the base pallet itself and the pallet would bend under the weight of the server rack system inside.

Our design has a floating base inside the crate. The racks are secured to this floating base, which allows for the appropriate protection and movement, while the crates are secured in the trailer. Additionally, Legacy’s new design allows for proper weight distribution and support across the base pallet.
