Charlotte, North Carolina, is a hub for the energy, transportation, and healthcare industries. But its strength in the financial sector may surprise you; in the US, only New York City is a larger banking center. Bank of America and Brighthouse Financial – two Fortune 500 companies – are both based in Charlotte.
Many leading companies in major industries either operate in, or are based out of, the city. This includes Coca-Cola bottling, Carolina Foods, Inc., Continental Tire, Meineke Car Care, and Rack Room Shoes. Other Fortune 500 companies based in Charlotte include Honeywell, Nucor, Lowe’s, Duke Energy, and Sonic Automotive.
Charlotte is – and has been for some time – among the fastest growing metro areas in the US. From 2003-13, its economy grew by 26.9%, driven largely by growth in the industries of agriculture, education, finance, and food and beverages.
Unlike many cities of similar size, Charlotte isn’t located near any major rivers or other bodies of water. While this may have limited its growth in times past, in today’s economy its open geography has enabled it to become a major player in rail, trucking, and air freight.
Richmond Rack is proud to be a part of Charlotte’s continuing growth. We supply new and used racking, conveyors, mezzanines, and more, to enable warehouses and distribution centers to manage product with increased efficiency and lower costs.
We have storage solutions of all types – from wire decking for split-case and open-case product to cantilever racks for large and bulky items. For complex systems, we carry a large selection of conveyors – including accumulation conveyors, chain driven conveyors, sortation conveyors, gravity roller conveyors, and more – from the top national brands.
Among our solutions is the ability to create more floor space within an existing floorplan. This allows companies to expand their operations without the costs of knocking out walls or relocating. One way that we do this is through the intelligent redesign of the existing layout of racking in a warehouse, and the inclusion of more modern racks. Another effective method is the addition of mezzanines and industrial platforms, which can effectively give a warehouse a second floor inside of its existing layout.
Help protect your investments and keep your facilities safe for your employees through our line of guardrails and rack repair products.
At Richmond Rack, we’ll do more for you than provide the materials. We’ll help you configure your warehouses and other facilities to more effectively store and move your product.
