Hannibal Industries' TubeRack Inventor Andrew Kirby Presents at PROMAT 2013

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jan 21, 2013) - For the first time, TubeRack inventor, Andrew Kirby is set to speak and discuss the details of designing the revolutionary patent pending TubeRack System in booth #659 at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22 and Wednesday, January 23, 2013. The TubeRack System will be on display at PROMAT from January 21-24, 2013 in Hannibal Industries' booth #659 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. 

Andrew Kirby, the inventor of TubeRack, states, "TubeRack has set its reputation as the stronger, safer racking system that provides a lower overall cost of ownership."

As Kirby will discuss during his presentation, the TubeRack System's dual-moment frame allows flexibility both front-to-back and side-to-side giving it the ability to withstand impacts and seismic events more safely. 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.
