“I have used Maxstor countless times to provide solutions to my pallet racking requirements and have always been extremely satisfied with the result. Anytime a curve ball or change in direction was communicated to Maxstor they made the time to come out, sit down & understand the new direction. This kind of customer service is few & far between and that understanding of what I needed, made sure the job was executed to specification in a timely manner”
