About Us


About Cranston Material Handling

Cranston Material Handling Equipment specializes in inspecting, repairing, selling, and installing pallet racks since 1957. 

Since 1957 we have been working with manufacturing facilities and distribution centers. In the early years Harwood Cranston and David Cranston Sr. would cut and build racking from slotted angle with the young Cranston boys eagerly awaiting the day they could help. David Cranston Sr. built the business using the Pittsburgh Industrial Show as an opportunity to market racking and other industrial equipment.

Since those days we have grown into a full service distributor of racking systems and other material handling and storage equipment. With decades of experience, we understand the challenges faced by our clients. We have developed a wide range of versatile storage solutions to enable our clients to store their products safely.

Since 1957

Cranston Material Handling’s inspection service is used by companies who strive to provide safe work environments in their manufacturing operations and warehouses. Our comprehensive inspections help to improve workplace safety by ensuring the pallet rack system is structurally sound, while also limiting the business’s liability, if an accident were to occur.

Our team of material handling professionals has many years of experience designing, installing, and inspecting pallet rack systems. Through the lens of our extensive experience and training, we will inspect your racking system and provide you with a detailed report of the deficiencies that you should address. With a consistent inspection and maintenance program your racks will perform as designed for many years, and your plant’s safety record will improve.

We perform pallet rack inspections and design pallet rack systems in western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, and eastern Ohio.

Our mission at Cranston Material Handling is to improve the storage capacity of your facility, increase the efficiency of your warehouse operations, while, most importantly, improving worker safety.
