Hytrol Conveyor president, David Peacock, shared in the company blog, how the 2016 landscape of conveyor needs is changing. More products were sold online this past holiday season than in retail stores. This shift has changed the relationship of automation, picking, packing, production, productivity, and throughput. Even with the boom of same day delivery is growing rapidly, the role of manufacturing in North America cannot be overestimated.
After years of offshoring manufacturing, the tide has changed, and reshoring is taking place quickly. The need for manufacturers to be agile and respond to real-time demand-driven customer fluctuations means that manufacturing in North America will grow ever stronger over the next five years.
“We see this at our own Jonesboro, Arkansas facility, adding 62,000 square feet and approximately 75 new permanent positions. It took a few years to recover from the 2008 recession; we are back stronger than ever and it is with great pride and privilege that I lead this lean manufacturing company to new heights,” added Peacock.
Hytrol could not grow without integration partners (IPs). They are the public face of Hytrol. The IPs provide a value added service to each customer, ensuring that the right product is installed every time. They listen, evaluate, and recommend what is best for each client.
