Pallet racking is the backbone of any successful warehouse. As a pallet racking system is a significant investment that can increase the productivity and storage capacity of a warehouse, it’s important to choose the right pallet racking system. In fact, choosing a poor quality pallet racking system can result in damage to your warehouse, inventory losses and even worker injuries.
Australian Made vs Imported Pallet Racking
When it comes to choosing the right pallet racking system for your needs, one of the most important decisions you will make is whether to buy Australian or imported.
Traditionally, imported racking has been significantly cheaper to procure than Australian manufactured product. However, with recent industry changes regarding anti-dumping laws, Australian manufacturers are now able to provide more competitively priced racks.
The Advantages of Buying Locally Made Pallet Racking
Australian Made Quality
Unlike many imported pallet racking systems, you can be sure of the quality of Australian made racks. Macrack manufacture durable pallet racking systems locally, in Brisbane. Our pallet racking systems are made from beams of roll formed steel and pre-galvanised frames that will never rust.
Each pallet racking system we manufacture is made to meet and often exceed all Australian Standards for steel storage racking. When you choose Macrack, you’re choosing quality that has remained consistent over 35 years of manufacturing supported by a lifetime guarantee. We use quality steel and our finely honed design to create high quality, durable, and safe pallet racking systems, available Australia wide.
Certified & Tested
Each pallet racking system we manufacture is independently certified and tested to ensure that only the highest quality product leaves our manufacturing facility. To ensure that you are purchasing high quality, Australian made pallet racking, always ask for confirmation of where the racks were manufactured as well as certification to the latest Australian Standard.
Short Lead Times
Another benefit of buying locally made pallet racking is short lead times as you won’t have to wait on your racking to be packed and shipped overseas. In fact, Macrack keep a huge range of stock on hand for immediate dispatch and installation. In addition, we can even have custom racks manufactured and installed before other companies would have loaded their product into a shipping container.
Don’t wait weeks and even months for a stock standard imported racking system of inferior quality, when Macrack can make you a high quality, custom racking system, and have it out the door in less than a week.
Customised Storage Solutions
Ideally, a pallet racking system should be designed specifically for the products it will be storing as well as the processes and available space in the warehouse. This will ensure that storage capacity is maximised and productivity is increased.
However, the stock standard, one-size-fits-all pallet racking that most importers offer cannot make the most of your warehouse as every warehouse is different. This leaves room for wasted space and unoptimised operations, as your processes and inventory are forced to fit your racking system when it should be the other way around.
Macrack can design and manufacture customised storage solutions tailored to your needs. Whether you’re looking to store bulk amounts of a few products, fast moving foods and perishables, or specialised products such as tyres or pipes, Macrack can design the perfect storage system for your warehouse.

Repairs, Relocations & Extensions
Finally, buying Australian made racking comes with the added benefit of ongoing support for your business. Whether you need pallet racking repairs, to relocate warehouses, or to extend on your existing racking system, Macrack will be there to help.
With racking importers you may find that 10 years down the line when your pallet racking needs to be repaired or you need replacement parts, the company you bought from no longer exists. Conversely, Macrack has been manufacturing pallet racking in Australia for over 35 years, so you can have peace of mind that we will still be around to help out with all of your future warehouse storage needs.
