Since its initial release in 2012, TubeRack has successfully been installed globally, endured its first-ever impact test, formed strategic partnerships to develop a new racking product and has expanded into new industries.
TubeRack's modular design is engineered to be more impact resistant, to reduce product shedding in the case of an impact or seismic event, offers better tolerances, and more efficient shipping. The system's dual-moment frame allows flexibility both front-to-back and side-to-side giving it the ability to withstand impacts and seismic activity.
This new facility is expected to fill the racks starting this week and become a fully functioning distribution center before the holiday shopping season begins. The company has never had a West Coast distribution center, with the last one opening in South Carolina in 2007.
