Hannibal Industries Reveals Revolutionary TubeRack System at MODEX

TubeRack Is Stronger, Safer and Provides a Lower Overall Cost of Ownership Than Conventional Racking Systems

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - Hannibal Industries, Inc., a leading storage system manufacturer and provider, announced today its revolutionary patent pending TubeRack System that is stronger, safer, and provides a lower overall cost of ownership than most conventional racking systems. The TubeRack System is on display at MODEX from February 6-9, 2012 in booth 1928 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The TubeRack System's dual-movement frame allows flexibility both front-to-back and side-to-side giving it the ability to withstand impacts and seismic events more safely with your product design. Its horizontal-bolt-together modular design handles more capacity with less steel in many instances, while reducing the stress on the slab. This all-new modular design also allows for future flexibility and lower freight costs.

"Hannibal Industries is proud to reveal its new patent pending TubeRack System at the first-ever MODEX tradeshow," said Blanton Bartlett, president of Hannibal Industries, Inc. "The company's tube manufacturing expertise and established infrastructure positioned Hannibal Industries to develop its patent pending TubeRack System at a time when the market demands a stronger, safer alternative to conventional racking."

The patent-pending TubeRack System is a part of Hannibal Industries' diverse and evolving product line that has enabled the company to provide turnkey storage systems to some of the largest big box retailers, archive storage and food and beverage operations in the world. MODEX is the official global launch for TubeRack with a focus on key international markets including Mexico, Canada, South America and Australia. TubeRack can be used for all of Hannibal Industries' storage solutions such as Selective, Double Deep, Push Back, Pallet Flow, Drive-In, Pallet Shuttle™, GlideRack, Archive, Retail and AS/RS systems.
