Shelving Concepts, a provider of business storage systems for warehouses and offices, today launched Amoruso Racking, a wholly owned subsidiary focused on manufacturing heavy-duty teardrop pallet rack systems, cantilever racks, industrial shelving and components. The racking systems designed and manufactured by Amoruso Racking are expected to have a major positive impact on operational efficiency and keep industry in motion.

“Today’s demands for real-time inventory management and the associated productivity gains depend on the systems that support the movement, storage, control and protection of everything from raw materials to finished products,” said Tom Amoruso, founder and CEO of Shelving Concepts.

The foundation of Amoruso Racking’s manufacturing process is a newly acquired Rafter rollformer, featuring a 3-inch axel that drives each of the 14 stations with a 75 HP motor. It, along with a 300-ton Minster HeviStamper and other heavy industrial equipment used in manufacturing teardrop pallet racks, cantilever racks and industrial shelving, had
previously been part of the production line at Excel Storage Products, which, prior to bankruptcy, had been one of the largest rack systems manufacturers in the U.S.

“Our investment in Amoruso Racking illustrates our commitment to the future of U.S. manufacturing, which can remain competitive by focusing on superior quality, excellent service and cost-saving efficiency,” said Amoruso. “By producing our own teardrop pallet rack systems, cantilever racks, industrial shelving and components through Amoruso Racking, Shelving Concepts will be able to help customers across the U.S. improve operational efficiency and productivity, and satisfy the increasing demands of real-time inventory management.”

Amoruso Racking will share space with Shelving Concepts’ existing manufacturing line at 944 Fisher Street in Houston, where they produce high-strength Dixie Shelving components. Dixie Shelving uses leading edge computer-controlled production lines to turn out an extensive product line that serves the needs of customers ranging from warehousing and manufacturing to professional service firms, schools and health-care organizations.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce and Bureau of Labor Statistics, the consumption of material handling and logistics equipment and systems in America currently exceeds $156 billion per year, with employment topping 700,000 workers. Continued industrial restructuring and realignment will provide substantial growth potential for Amoruso Racking and Shelving Concepts’ other brands, helping to keep the industry one of America’s largest and fastest growing.
