West Point Rack’s customer first philosophy pays off by Mary Glindinning

Nine years ago, Terry Sroka and Reva Bily “decided to leave the large corporate world of decisions by committee, meeting after meeting and burdensome policies,” they said. The two founded West Point Rack, a Nebraska company that sells exclusively to material handling dealers. “West Point Rack is a smaller company with a highly dedicated staff. This allows us to ‘turn on a dime,’ respond quickly and to innovate whenever the opportunity presents itself,” said Sroka, chief executive officer. “I don’t want to be one of the biggest rack companies out there, just one of the better ones. Our primary goal is to support our dealers, satisfy their customers, earn trust and be the ‘Vendor of Choice’ for rack products and racking systems.” Company president Bily said if an end-user calls, they refer them to a dealer. “There is nothing wrong with selling direct to the end user, but you don’t do both,” Sroka said. “Draw the ‘line’ and stay on one side or the other. In order to build a good relationship with a dealer and to have him trust you, it is necessary that he really believes that you will not go around him and make the sale direct. Dealers are independent businesses that spend time and money to build up a customer base and the last thing they want to see is a manufacturer go around them and sell to one of their prospects who is shopping price.” Bily grew up on a farm and worked in a packing house and electrical sales before she joined the material handling industry. Customer service is the core of what she does, and the key to growth, she said. Customers want prices and delivery quickly.

She tries to get back to a customer with a standard quote in 15 minutes, she said. The relationship with dealers is built on competitive prices, service and standing behind the product, Sroka said. “If product issues do arise, we address those issues immediately with the goal of creating satisfaction for both our dealer and their customer,” he said. The company sells cantilever racks in light, intermediate, heavy and extra heavy duty configurations, structural pallet racks in galvanized or painted steel and portable stacking racks made to order. “I always look for things when we do specials,” Sroka said. “Does it have any potential of becoming a standard product? That is how we developed a lot of our standard products.” Specialty products made by West Point Rack include bar cradle trucks, drum racks and handcarts. West Point Rack has recently added new products to its line of racks. Included is a new line of reel racks, ranging in height from eight to 12 feet. Vertical racks, which will hold material from 21 inches to 12 feet, feature six-inch deep arms with three shelves made of 14-guage steel. U-Racks, which come with an orange paint finish, can be stacked up to four units high to save space. “The future looks very positive for West Point Rack,” Sroka said. “Our product base is expanding as is our market penetration. We will continue with the business model and plan that has taken us to this point and will continue to move us forward.”

Products by Hamilton Hamilton rolls out new Caster Series

Hamilton’s 7700 Caster Series is a new line of dual-wheel solid pneumatic casters designed to cushion loads while providing a carrying capacity up to 8400 lbs. per caster. The new series represents our highest rated caster series designed for heavy duty ground support and heavy manufacturing applications over rough surfaces. The dual-wheel design essentially doubles the load capacity of Hamilton’s single wheel 7500 Series. These dual wheel casters also provide greater stability due to their much wider stance. All models have drop forged steel mounting plates and CNC machined raceways. Available in six wheel diameters from 10" x 4" to 21" x 6", all wheels are equipped with 1" or 1 1/4" precision tapered roller bearings making them well suited for power-towed applications. The 16", 18", and 21" wheels are comprised of three tread sections: a firm, stable rubber base compound for strong rim adhesion; a very resilient middle section to dampen the shock of uneven rolling surfaces; and a tough low rolling resistance tread to reduce energy consumption. The result is a soft ride that compares with full pneumatic tires, but with much higher capacities than their air-filled cousins. The 12" and 14" wheels are comprised of two tread sections. The same stable base found on the other wheels for strong rim adhesion combined with a tough abrasion resistant outer tread compound. The new 7700 Caster Series can be optioned with permanently welded four position swivel lock and a heavy duty contact brake. The new series is backed by Hamilton’s industry-first three year product warranty.

Hamilton Caster designs new inline caster for aerospace supplier

What began as a simple inquiry for a wheel spawned into a new Hamilton innovation. The end result was a custom engineered all stainless inline caster for a major aerospace part supplier. The aerospace company ordered two of these special casters designed for a clean room environment and each with an impressive carrying capacity of 15,500 lbs. The caster stands 10 1/8" tall and 21" long equipped with two 8" diameter by 2.2" double flanged track wheels. Four 40 millimeter double sealed precision stainless steel ball bearings were press fit into each wheel with 1-1/4" axles. The pivot block used axles 1-1/2" in diameter. The application required the load remain completely level to compensate for floor irregularities. So unlike a conventional dual-wheel caster that features wheels side by side, this caster was designed with inline wheels that support each other with a pivot point in the center of the caster. So when the front caster encounters the irregularities in the floor, the back wheel would keep the load level. Unlike industry-standard 303 or 304 stainless, Hamilton engineers selected ultra-durable, high-grade 316L stainless steel for all major components. 316L stainless has superior corrosion and pitting resistance and performs extremely well under continuous use. 316L stainless also contains less carbon than 303 or 304 stainless that reduces contamination during the welding process.

Hamilton offers trailers for all job sizes 40-Ton Paper Rolls

Line up all the paper printed daily at one of the largest mills in the United States, and you’d cover roughly 4,000 miles. Roll it back up into individual 40-ton rolls, and you’d have Hamilton’s heaviest trailer haul. The global supplier stretched us in more ways than one to move rolls of paper taller than a three-story building, and heavier than five elephants. At 33 feet, this isn’t just our highest-capacity trailer, it’s the longest we’ve ever built. Put that in ink. 30-Ton Chemistry Set

With a name like “Big Blue,” you know this four-wheel steer trailer totes serious mass. While 30-ton chemical molds might sound like quite the payload, it’s what’s under the truck that impresses – synchronized steering to maneuver through a maze-like factory floor. 20 Golden Tons

Open up a jewelry box, and you’ll find dustings of Hamilton. At a major mining operation, our fifth-wheel steer trailer hauls 20-ton vibrating screen machines. Each sifts through thousands of pounds of sediment each day to find rare minerals. You might say we’re worth our weight in gold.
