Who Is Material Handling Exchange?
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 over 500,000 square feet of warehouse space full of everything you could ever need for your 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 companies 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 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 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 it maybe coming in soon from a recently used package acquisition.
New Manufacturing Operation
We have grown to be one of the largest used material handling equipment dealers in the Midwest, if not the country. Although our specialty was used 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 buy 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 operation dedicated to building New Pallet Racking and Cantilever Racking. 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 pallet racking products. 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 been outfitting a new 14,000 sqft warehouse with new racking. We worked with MHE a couple years ago and had great experience with getting everything specced out and rated for our needs. We had to get racks custom made for the specific work we do. Their prices were very competitive. We went back and ordered another quantity from them last year. We will likely be ordering more from them in the future. The only issue we had was the delivery. The trucking company they used didn’t brace everything and some of the racking fell off the pallets in the truck. It took us several hours to partially hand-unload a full 53 foot trailer. That was the trucking company though. MHE was great."

Hats off to Brad Cross and his crew there."
"Gleaners Food Bank recently contracted with MHE to install racking in our cooler rooms and Material Handling Exchange was great to work with. They were very responsive to our needs and gave us very reasonable pricing. The install team that came to our facility was outstanding; they worked safely and cleaned the work areas meticulously once the work was completed.
We will absolutely use Material Handling Exchange for future projects in our DC."
"I had MHE design and build cantilever rack for our cabinet manufacturing company. the sales person I worked with was knowledgable of how our business works and knew exactly what we needed. This order was a custom build due to the limited ceiling height we have to work with in out plant. when we received our cantilever order we built and loaded it with lumber. everthing works great."
"Hands down the best company for racking I have worked with in my 15+ years. The racking is clean,safe,strong and easy to put up fast. I would also say that the sales team is right there if anything comes up with the job. All my questions where answered quick and they made sure to go over every detail to ensure I got the correct racking for my application. My company is located in North Carolina and there was no problems with shipping and was fast to get to us."
"Starting at the beginning of this year I have been dealing with Mr. Horwitz. He has been very helpful and accomodating to our needs here at Newegg. He is very knowledgeable and prompt when offering quotations. Once orders are in the process the rest of his team communicates at a very professional level. We’ve ordered from them several times already this year and will continue to do so in the future."
"We’ve done business a handful of times with MHE. It’s always a problem-free experience. Whether we’re picking up a small order from their warehouse directly or having them ship an order to our shop, the order is always accurate. Prompt shipments. Good quality used stock. New stock is fairly priced. Their sales staff is always personable and checks over orders to make sure you didn’t overlook anything. We have no reason to buy from anyone else."
