2015 continues to be another strong year for the material handling industry.  With the opening of our Utah Facility, Advance is now able to service virtually any market in the US competitively.  As an added benefit the capacity of the Utah facility has allowed us to shorten our lead times to be more responsive to quick ship needs. 

 

With the release of the "Guideline for Assessment and Repair or Replacement of Damaged Rack" by RMI last year, we continue to see a growing awareness with our customers that an unsafe rack system creates an unsafe work environment.  (see below under Rack Repair to order a copy of this document)  This is especially important with older systems that have been damaged, reconfigured or repaired without proper professional supervision and documentation.  If you have any doubt about the safety of your Rack system, we strongly recommend that the system be evaluated by a qualified Rack Systems Professional.

 

Please contact us if we can help you with your warehouse storage needs.

 

Sincerely,

John Krummell, President/CEO Advance Storage Products
