Custom Steel Racks

As a manufacturer with more than 30 years of experience in the fabrication of custom racks, our well-designed products provide an efficient and effective means of storing, protecting, and shipping a diverse range of components for the automotive industry. Engineered to transport goods ranging from heavy duty engine components to sensitive electronics, our material handling solutions are field-proven to enhance the productivity of various operations at every level of the supply chain.

Built from structural and stainless steel plate and tubing to within tight 1/16″ tolerances, each rack and packaging solution is designed to safely and securely transport components while protecting them from damage and handling errors. From robust, difficult to handle parts such as engines, transmissions, axles, and radiators, to fragile mirrors and sculpted components with Class A surfaces, our expertise has helped automakers streamline their vital manufacturing and assembly operations. We have created built-in features such as gas-assisted retractable shelving, pull-out shelving, stacking and nesting racks as well as those with cantilevered arms.

Our racks and packaging products are quality tested to ensure they meet the rigors of long-term daily use and meet the customer’s capacity requirements and desired efficiency standards. To learn more about our material handling solutions for automotive applications, contact us today.
