Rack manufacturer Ridg-U-Rak sees strong growth for the rack industry in the second half of the year after a soft first half, with the industry reporting flat sales growth for the year, according to the company's national sales and marketing manager.
In an interview today at the biennial Modex conference in Atlanta, David S. Olson said that the racking market "will explode" in the second half. Olson said he is seeing strong booking activity that will hit the market later in 2016. Olson added that he sees solid activity in the distribution center space as retailers pursue rapid-order fulfillment solutions to play catch-up with e-tailing leader Amazon.com Inc.
Ridg-U-Rak is based in North East, Pa.
