Terex: Pioneers in Warehouse Innovation

Terex’s Legacy and Expertise is a global manufacturer specializing in materials processing machinery and aerial work platforms. With its roots in Watertown, SD, the company has established itself as a titan in machinery manufacturing. Catering to a diverse clientele, they have mastered producing robust equipment essential for today’s dynamic market demands. 

Terex has worked with us on multiple occasions to bolster their warehouse layout. The addition of Steel King selective pallet racks and wire decking, and the company’s commitment to continued enhancements represent a strategic move toward operational excellence. These modifications not only streamline their production but also enhance their capability to rapidly respond to customer needs.

“Terex has been a great client! They are easy to work with and always know what they need. This time around, we provided selective racking complete with heavy-duty beams to accommodate heavier pallets.”

Muddy Bites

Muddy Bites are a fun treat inspired by that last chocolatey, crunchy bite of goodness at the end of an ice cream cone. The treat is sold online and stocked in well-known stores across the US. This popular treat company, ever-growing in popularity, required an addition at their North Sioux City warehouse facility. 

Working with AK Material Handling Systems on over __ occasions, Muddy Bites is a great partner who displays a commitment to meeting growing demand while accommodating safe storage habits. At their Sioux City facility, we worked to integrate used selective pallet racking for increased storage capacity.

“We’ve had the honor of working with Muddy Bites on multiple occasions! For this project, we had all the materials they needed in stock from our used inventory. We were able to work with the client to provide the specific materials they needed.”
