"From the time we decided to proceed until the project was complete we never had any issues with Mr. Rich Fisher at all. The permitting process was handled through Federal Way without issue. All subcontractors showed up on time and in every case their work was outstanding. The finished product is exactly what we wanted and has become a show case for other owners at Garagetown. DACO and Mr. Rich Fisher delivered a completed project that truly represented best value for this very satisfied customer. Not only would I do business with them again, I highly recommend them to everyone that visits my "man cave"."
"About a year ago we bought a new warehouse building in Kent, WA. It turns out that buying and installing shelving has never been tougher: Earthquake considerations, Requests, inspections, permits, more inspections. And delays. Moving vans were rented, moving crews were scheduled to fly in from our other branches. We were getting down to the wire. By the time we got all of the permits we needed and inspections, we had about three weeks to get the shelving ordered, shipped and installed. I called Rich Fisher at DACO Corp. DACO sells a very good product. The shelving was not a “stock.” size. The manufacturer had to schedule and make it. Rich told me he couldn’t promise anything at this date but he would “do his best,” and he did that. Rich asked the manufacturer to give us a little bit of priority treatment because of our urgency and they did. The shelving arrived in excellent condition. All shelving needed to be “bolted” to the floor. Rich put together an installation team of four guys who worked their tails off everyday until the job was done. About a day after they were finished the first truck backed into our old warehouse to load up. The timing couldn’t have been any closer. Rich and his team from DACO did a superb job for us. We won’t forget it."

"In 2010 Eric Anderson, with DACO Corporation, partnered with Allan Brothers Fruit in providing a complete Advance Storage Products Pushback Storage Rack system for a new cold storage warehouse expansion at our Naches, Washington facility. This system was designed to accommodate our current and future high-density, multiple-variety product storage demands. The project included consultation in designing a solution, providing structural and seismic engineering, and project management in supplying the pushback rack system materials and coordinating installation. We were kept informed at each phase of the project, and the job was completed prior to the construction deadline required. Eric's confidence in DACO's quality products and professional services was communicated, from start to finish, in the handling of this $400,000+ project. As a satisfied customer, I consider DACO to be an outstanding company with a repution for integrity, whose vision is to be their client's "first thought and best choice". I would highly recommend Eric Anderson and DACO to anyone considering their services."

"In early 2008 we decided to upgrade our corrugator at our Sheets Unlimited facility. There were many decisions to be made such as who would supply this machine, how would it be installed, time lines and a thousand other things that we as a group were very prepared and qualified to make. In this process, it was decided that this installation had to be first class in every way. We decided to enclose all of the power air and water in trenches so there would be no visual obstructions around the machine. We moved walls, added conveyor lines and reorganized the entire building to compliment this machine. The final decision to be made was the placement of the operator’s control room. In our industry, these rooms typically are built at floor level next to the machines but we did not feel that this would meet either our needs or our vision for this installation. We made the decision to elevate the control room 12 feet above the floor and suspend it over the machine. This would not only optimize the field of vision for the operator but enhance the overall appearance of the machine. We contacted DACO to give us their thoughts on this project. Even though they may have initially thought that we were crazy, they never let it show. DACO handled everything, the engineering, design, fire suppression, and installation. The only decisions our group had to make during the process was the color. It was a great experience to have a company like DACO take a project of this magnitude and run with it from start to finish. They not only met our expectations but exceeded them in every aspect of the project. I look forward to working with them again on other projects of this type."

"I recently partnered with DACO on a $275,000 drive-in storage rack project for our freezer facility. DACO performed turnkey project management throughout the process, from engineering design to installation. As a satisfied customer, I consider DACO a reputable company that stands behind its solutions, and would consider DACO for future projects that may arise."
"We have had several large projects with DACO. In 2005 DACO provided us with a complete Interlake Cantilever Rack system for our Pultrusion facility in Tacoma. This project included designing a cantilever rack system to take advantage of the space at our facility, supply the rack system and its installation. Throughout the project, DACO worked with us, keeping us informed at each step of the job. We were pleased with their specialized management of this quarter million project and its successful completion. We at Milguard will always look to DACO on any future rack systems that we may need. I would recommend their company for anyone that needs a professional and straight forward team to supply any of their products and services."
