Raleigh is more than the political capital of North Carolina; as part of the country’s largest research park, it also plays an influential role in hi-tech, biotech, and textile research, among others. In 2019, Forbes ranked Raleigh #3 on its list of “Best Places for Businesses and Careers,” in part because of the Research Triangle’s economic impact on the area.
The site where Raleigh is now located – on the fall line, the boundary between the Piedmont plateau and the Atlantic Seaboard – was chosen to be the state’s seat of government in the late 1780’s. Prior to its founding, the area was empty farmland. This makes Raleigh one of the nation’s few planned capitals.
In part due to its central location, Raleigh is a key shipping point for the state, especially in the food and beverage industries. Other major industries include financial services, food processing, and the manufacturing of electronic and telecommunications equipment, as well as pharmaceuticals.
Richmond Rack is a leader in the material handling industry for the Mid-Atlantic region – including the Research Triangle. We specialize in developing creative solutions to match the right equipment to your material-handling needs.
We help you maximize floor space by matching the appropriate racking, shelving, and accessories to your specific requirements. For large items such as lumber, furniture, or sheet metal, we offer cantilever rack from all the major brands. For increased efficiency in storage and loading, our pallet racks are bar none. And our wire decking not only adds support to racks, but is also excellent storage for split-case and open-case items.
Further maximize the design of your warehouses or distribution centers with mezzanines and industrial platforms. These can effectively increase the square footage of a warehouse without changing its footprint.
We can help you increase the efficiency of your workforce by designing and installing conveyance systems. Whether you need a high-efficiency sortation conveyor or a lower-tech roller & wheels, we can implement the system that meets your needs.
Our line of guardrails and rack repair products will protect your investments and keep your facilities and employees safe.
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.
