Funny Locker Infographic

Here at Jorgenson Industrial Companies we see a lot of uses for lockers.  Of course from a professional aspect, we sell tens of thousands of lockers to schools, recreation centers, gyms and places like that.  Of course we help out smaller businesses such as dance studios, fast food restaurants, theme parks and karate studios with smaller orders that could be anywhere from three lockers to a few dozen…

Our locker divisions (both new and used) see even more uses from mud rooms to tool storage and many many other DIY projects.

Well we got to thinking and decided to make an infographic showing what we think is stored in some of our lockers across the United States.  Of course this is just our opinion and not actual results of any structured study or survey!

Enjoy.  🙂

Jorgenson Industrial Companies Cool Field Trip – Cool Idea To Feed Your Company
