Maxinest Containers were developed following close observation of how the food and grocery supply chain worked. Because of this, it makes them largely known within the catering industry. Some of the Maxinest Storage crates have bale arms attached to them, which allow the maxinest crate to stack when the bale arm is down. The swing bar action allows the crate to have three internal working heights. When the swing bar is off, the maxinest container nests inside each other. When the swing bar is locked at the lowest point the maxinest crate,nest inside one another. When the swing bar is locked at its highest point the maxinest container then stacks on top of oneanother.
