Who is Material Handling Exchange Inc. ? We are a team of very dedicated and knowledgeable professionals specializing in the set up and design of all types of warehouse storage and handling systems. Material Handling Exchange (MHE) opened its doors in 1989 working out of a small 3500 square foot warehouse. We have grown to have over 500,000 square feet of warehouse space crammed full of about everything you could ever need for your warehouse storage applications. Our specialty is used pallet rack beams, used pallet rack uprights and complete design and installation of used pallet racking systems of all types. In the begging our primary focus was the acquisition of used pallet racks. We would scour the country looking for warehouses that were closing down, consolidating, upsizing, you name it. Our goal was and still is to have the largest selection of used pallet racks in the nation to offer our customers. Everyone wants a deal. Our used pallet rack & related warehouse equipment allows this to happen. Because of our buying power, we are able to negotiate the best deals when acquiring used warehouse equipment which means those savings can be passed on to our customers. The bottom line is that pallet racks are made from steel. Unless they have been damaged by a forklift they are just as good 10 years down the road as they were the day they were new. When we are acquiring our used material handling equipment packages we run across just about anything you would ever see in a warehouse storage and distribution environment. These items range from used forklifts, used stretch wrap machines, used gravity conveyor and in some cases complete used conveyor systems. We have saved our clients throughout the years Millions of dollars by providing them top quality used warehouse equipment at a fraction of the cost of new. If you are looking for something for your warehouse, most likely we’ll have what you need in stock or we just might have it coming in soon from a recent used package acquisition.
Throughout time we grew to be the largest stocking used warehouse equipment dealer in the Midwest if not the country. Although our specialty was used warehouse equipment, we came to realize that there are applications where we simply couldn’t satisfy certain requirements of our customers. Whether this meant we couldn’t find the right size used pallet racks or the customer simply had to have new, we found it necessary to create a solution to this problem. Although the solution wasn’t simple, we began the process of setting up our newest warehouse operation dedicated to building new pallet racks and cantilever racks. We are proud to announce that our new manufacturing operation has been going on for 1 year and is continually growing. This simply means that MHE can now offer our client’s factory direct pricing on their pallet rack and cantilever rack systems. Whether you need standard tear drop style selective pallet rack, drive-in racks, push-back racks, pallet flow racks and cantilever racks. We’ve got you covered. Many of our clients benefit from a used and new combination of materials. In a case where we don’t have the exact size of uprights they may need, we simply build them. If we don’t have the exact pallet rack beams they need but have used uprights that will work, we build the beams. The addition of our new products have given us flexibility in our industry that simply put, nobody else has. Being located in Indianapolis also gives are clients a big freight savings. We are very fortunate to be able to operate is what is considered the crossroads of America which affords us a very competitive edge when it comes to our low freight costs compared to our competition.
We have professionals in place to handle your projects from start to finish. We offer complete warehouse layout drawings and design along with handling any permitting issues from start to finish. We can offer you trade-in allowance or a straight buyout on any quality used warehouse equipment you made need to get rid of.
