Wire Trays, Baskets, & Assemblies

Modular Container Systems, an expert in wire formed trays, baskets, and assemblies, has been repeatedly contracted by logistics, warehousing, and automotive customers to deliver custom handling systems. Through our customer-centric design and fabrication, we continue to deliver purpose built handling equipment that protects cargo and simplifies flow in shipping and handling applications.

Our wire trays, baskets, and assemblies are formed out of 304 stainless wire developed to ASTM A82 or A510 standards, and can be finished to have zinc electroplated, galvanized, enameled, E-coated, Plastisol, and Polyurea coatings. We fabricate using forming, bending, welding, and assembly processes, all occurring within an ISO 9001:2008 environment. Per customer requirements, these wire products may have dimensional tolerances as precise as ±1/16″, and may include features such as stackability, conveyor compatibility, and additional wire guards/holders.
