5 Reasons to Go “The Apex Way” When Choosing a Warehouse Solutions Partner

In the beginning, there was an idea…

Apex Companies is a different kind of storage and material handling company. We began with a firm foundation… a foundation rooted in customer-centric principles and service excellence.  We call it the “The Apex Way”.  So how do a bunch of principles (27 to be exact) make such a difference? To explain, we’ve highlighted a few of the major points below:

5 Reasons to Choose Apex as Your Warehouse Solutions Partner

Reason #1 – Think Safe, Work Safe

Our firm foundation begins with safety. The safety principle applies to our employees, the warehouse storage systems, and the operational layouts we create as well as our maintenance and repair services, systems/equipment training, and support for our customers.

Rack Repair App - Apex CompaniesApex Rack Repair & Safety Program

  • Rack Repair App
  • Apex PROs
  • Safety Products
  • Training Videos
  • Safety Spotlight & Educational Blogs

The Rack Repair and Safety Program is a hallmark of the Apex services. The Rack Repair App is a groundbreaking, free tool that customers can use to conduct their own thorough pallet rack audit. The app allows users to capture pertinent details regarding rack damage and specs for quick diagnosis and ordering of rack repair kit materials. However, not everyone has the staff or is comfortable conducting their own audit, so the Apex PROs are available to do it for you and provide the same cost-effective repair options that you would receive if you did the audit yourself.

Our website is full of safety products, training videos, and blogs to help your facility manager with the critical job of keeping everyone safe while ensuring a productive operation.


Reason #2 – Deliver Legendary Service

Surpassing the idea that the customer is always right, Apex goes further to ensure that everything from our warehouse designs to execution exceeds expectations. We are committed to timely response rates, keeping our customer well informed of scheduling/target dates, honoring our responsibilities, and completing the job only when you, our customer, is satisfied. A majority of our relationships are long-term return customers that we value greatly.

  • Rapid Response
  • Go the Distance
  • Do What it Takes

Our commitment to service excellence extends to our relationships with our suppliers as well. We have long-standing, trusted relationships with many suppliers which allows us to provide the best products and services to our customers. We also offer new and pre-owned Quick Ship pallet rack and accessories to help reduce lead times and project costs.

However, not every job goes perfectly, we know that.  We prepare for a lot but if a wrench gets thrown into the works, we’ve got the resources to address everything from simple to complex challenges, quickly and skillfully to complete the job.

New builds, add-ons, repairs, and even take-downs are important to us and we have the crews to handle all the project needs of our customers. And, on that note…
