Steel King belongs to several industry associations in an effort to provide you with quality products and services. Associations we hold memberships with are described as follows:
Material Handling Institute - MHI
MHI is a national trade association, incorporated in 1945, whose members design, manufacture, integrate and market material handling equipment, systems or components. MHI is involved with the equipment related side of the material handling industry and provides product section and council activities for member companies.
The Rack Manufacturers Institute - RMI
RMI is a section of MHI that is comprised mostly of companies producing industrial storage rack. In the interest of improved uniformity of rack performance and enhanced public safety, the Institute published in 1964 its first “Minimum Engineering Standards for Industrial Storage Rack.” Since this code’s introduction, several revisions have been made. Currently, RMI codes consist of engineering formulas and minimum design standards intended to produce safe and structurally sound rack systems. Steel King employs structural engineers who are registered in several states in order to comply with these codes and apply the latest design codes to your rack system.

The Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association - SMA
SMA's mission includes development and advancement of standards and activities to advance the quality, safety and general fitness for intended use of Industrial/Storage Equipment.

Principal among these products are steel shelving, industrial mezzanines, work and assembly stations, modular drawer equipment, clothing storage lockers, movable base storage equipment, storage containers and directly related equipment.
Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association - MHEDA
MHEDA is an independent association of material handling equipment distributors. Steel King is an Allied (manufacturer) member. MHEDA’s mission is to further improve the proficiency of material handling distributors so that they be the most effective and efficient in their respective market place.
Protective Guarding Manufacturing Association – ProGMA
Steel King is a charter member of the Protective Guarding Manufacturers Association. ProGMA's members are the Industry’s leading suppliers of fixed protective guarding products designed to protect personnel, equipment, and inventory in industrial facilities.
American Standards National Institute - ANSI
Although Steel King is not a direct member of this group, ANSI has accepted and published a set of design standards for pallet racks. The RMI section of MHI, of which Steel King is a member, developed this standard. All Steel King pallet racks conform to these specifications.
