The History of Golden Giant Dry Rack Boat Storage Buildings
Golden Giant was involved in selling many Flat Storage Marine Facilities around the Great Lakes in the early 1980’s.  Marina owners were basically pulling the customers boat and trailer right into the building.  A couple of marinas had converted the traditional 2 level warehouse racking systems into boat racks.

Intrigued with the concept, Gene took a closer look at the design.  He immediately noticed the severe deflection from the boats being considerably heavier than the rack system could support.  Gene realized there was a considerable amount of wasted space because some boats were bigger and some were smaller, yet sitting in adjacent spaces.  Hence, the concept of designing, fabricating and erecting an adjustable, rack supported building (Dry Rack Boat Storage Building).  This concept eliminated the need for additional separate columns and footings which were required in the non-rack supported buildings.  It also gave the marina owner the options of adjusting rack heights to optimize rack storage space.  The marina operator no longer had to shoe horn boats into the racks.

Golden Giant was founded in 1971 by Gene Good, who had a simple business plan.  It was to be a full service provider of state-of-the-art steel buildings.  The alternative prior to Golden Giant was to deal with companies, who had to source products from various entities and could only hope the pieces would fit together at the job site. 

Gene’s straight forward philosophy provided a one stop shop buying solution for steel building projects.  The customer now had one company to work with for the design, fabrication, and erection of their buildings, hence the term "Spanning the Gap".  The customers could now save time and money because the middlemen were eliminated from the transaction.  Also, the enormous logistics hurdles were brought under control because Golden Giant was now solely responsible for the design, manufacturing, delivering and erection of the buildings.
