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

Eleven 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 crushes downtime with new no–maintenance casters

mounting plate and carries up to 3000 lbs. per caster making this the highest rated maintenance-free kingpinless caster in its class. • The ZFFM Series rounds out the Spinfinity lineup and offers 3" wide wheels with the same 4 ½" x 6 ¼" mounting plate and is rated up to 3200 lbs. per caster. See full product specs: HamiltonCaster. com/Spinfinity

New 20 Ton Industrial Trailers Pre-Engineered for Quick Turnaround Hamilton Caster is proud to introduce Spinfinity™ – a new line of heavy duty maintenance-free casters. Incorporated into the swivel kingpinless construction is special cnc-machining to host a large internal seal. The seal is made from Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) and is completely enclosed inside the swivel assembly. With no outside exposure, the swivel assembly is well suited to keep grease in and contaminants out. As is customary with Hamilton, the Spinfinity casters boast extra thick forgings and proven kingpinless swivel technology for superior durability over the life of the casters. The top plate and inner raceway are one forged steel piece, not a weldment, providing unmatched strength for shock conditions. The raceways are CNCmachined and then hardened to a uniform depth. These processes assure a smoothly swiveling caster under heavy loads. All of this adds up to Spinfinity® carrying the industry’s best three-year product warranty. “The grease fittings are gone!” explained Jeff Spektor, the lead designer of Spinfinity. “With the permanent seals in the swivel raceway and the wheel hub, grease fittings are no longer required.” The benefits of the Spinfinity casters are also in direct alignment with Hamilton’s own lean principles employed throughout their manufacturing operations. “With Spinfinity casters now available, time spent maintaining casters is actually waste”, remarked Dave Lippert, Hamilton’s President. Like all Hamilton forged steel casters, the new Spinfinity Maintenance-Free casters are manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio USA and stocked for PRONTO® Same Day or Next Day Shipment. The Spinfinity lineup is offered in three popular heavy duty series: • The ZFWH Series features 2" wide wheels, the industry’s most popular 4" x 5" mounting plate, and is rated up to 2500 lbs. per caster. • The ZFHS Series also features 2" wide wheels but with a larger 4 ½" x 6 ¼"

wheels are equipped with precision tapered roller bearings and ride on 1-1/2 inch stressproof axles. Finally, a major wear point on any towed trailer is the towing loop. The Hercules features a forged steel loop designed for handling the extreme loads and resistant to wear during years of use.

Hamilton’s electric trailer spins through narrow factory maze

…Hamilton’s new line of Hercules trailers is available to ship in 4-5 weeks.

September 6th, 2016: Hamilton is proud to announce Hercules: the new line of preengineered super duty industrial trailers. The new Hercules line has a load capacity range of 20,000–40,000 lbs. per trailer and is pre-engineered for quick turnaround. While most high capacity industrial trailers have a minimum leadtime of 7-8 weeks, the Hercules line is available to ship in an industry-leading leadtime of 4-5 weeks. The Hercules line are fifth-wheel-steer type with a total of ten standard deck sizes starting at 4 feet wide by 8 feet long and ranging up to 5 feet wide by a massive 24 feet long. The series is also grouped in 20K, 25K, 30K, 35K, and 40K load capacities designed for severe loading and power towing conditions. Common applications for the Hercules are hauling tooling, dies, molds, structural steel bars, rolls, cylinders, and plate steel efficiently throughout the plant. Each Hercules deck is constructed of ¼ inch plate steel with structural steel channel ranging from 5 inch on the 20K load trailer to 12 inch on the 40K version. The fifth wheel steering consists of ¾ inch steel plates sandwiching a 24-inch diameter antifriction disc rotating on a 2-inch kingpin providing years of trouble-free service with very low turning resistance. Design engineers selected heavy duty presson polyurethane wheels ranging from 14” diameter on the 20K load trailers up to 22” diameter on the 40K load trailers. All

With Hamilton’s trailer, workers now load the dies in the direction of the trailer for transport, which opens up more than a foot of space on both sides of the trailer. When the trailer reaches the production facility via a tugger – which also serves as its power supply – the die rotates 90 degrees before being unloaded. A single rotation takes roughly 2.5 minutes, with a full 360-degree turn clocking in at 10 minutes. This may seem like forever in manufacturing, but a slow and steady turn helps keep workers safe, and protects the equipment. For added durability, our engineers spec’d and installed ball transfer units to surround the slew drive to prevent damage if the load isn’t perfectly centered. • All steel, double fifth-wheel steer trailer • Capacity: 30,000 lbs. • Size: 60" side by 90" long by 30" deck height • Structural steel frame with steel plate welded over structural steel frame • 60" wide by 90" long steel turntable with 6" tall by 1" thick bolt-on lip • Loop-type towing tongue at both ends with lock outs engaged by raising tongue • Running gear: eight dual-mounted, press-on polyurethane wheels with tapered roller bearings • Color: safety/international orange • Slewing drive powered by 24-volt DC electric motor
