efficiency, and depth of products that our competitors are not able to offer”, Murphy said, “The merger gives both companies a greater reach into the warehouse materials handling industry and the ability to provide greater value to customers.”

Base President and CEO Steve South said: “Base Manufacturing now has the opportunity to bring our extensive range of high quality roll formed and structural products to Boston Rack’s customer base, and also have access to Boston Rack’s suite of engineering and technical services. In today’s market, only the strong will survive, and our companies have the products and services not only to be a survivor but also to be an industry leader.”
