Who is Material Handling Exchange Inc. ?We are a team of 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 full of everything you could ever need for your warehouse storage applications. Our specialty is used pallet rack beams & uprights, and complete design and installation of racking systems of all types. In the beginning, 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. Because 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. Our goal was and still is to have the largest selection in the nation to offer our customers. 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. 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. 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.
We have grown to be one of the largest used warehouse equipment dealers 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 setup 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 is continually growing. MHE can now offer our clients factory direct pricing on their pallet or cantilever rack systems. Whether you need standard tear drop style, drive-in racks, push-back racks, flow racks, or cantilever racks. We’ve got you covered. Many of our clients benefit from a combination of new & used product. 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 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 our 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 on staff 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. We pride ourselves on being a one stop shop for all of your warehouse storage and handling needs.
