Friend and Colleague, Wes Midgley, Passes Away


On Monday, December 17, 2012, Wes Midgley passed away in Boardman, OH.

For over 25 years, Wes was a treasured friend and colleague to Ridg-U-Rak. John Pellegrino and the engineering staff at Ridg-U-Rak worked so closely with Wes in the engineering, testing and design development of storage rack systems. Wes was particularly instrumental in the development and testing of our Drive-In rack systems. Wes and John spent endless weekends running countless tests on various products at the structural engineering lab at Youngstown State University. Together they developed ground breaking products that still lead the industry today. Wes will have a mark in the Ridg-U-Rak name forever. 

May he rest in peace and enjoy all of eternity with the love of his life, Cecile, who preceded him in death 11 years prior.

Godspeed Wes. Until we meet again…. Your friends at Ridg-U-Rak.
