According to Pittsburgh-based Seegrid Corp. (www.seegrid.com)
David Heilman, CAO at Seegrid, said, "Our customers are growing and innovating by using robots to increase facility productivity and efficiency to become more profitable, thus expanding their operations and adding more jobs. Robots are the high-tech tool companies are using to increase profits and grow their business."
American Packaging Corp. (APC), for example, recently expanded its facility in Columbus, WI. With this expansion, company executives recognized they either needed to add labor or automate. There was a need to safely transport printed materials across the 100,000 square foot expansion and adding labor was just not an option. Instead, APC added Seegrid’s Robotic Industrial Trucks and reassigned the labor needed to transport the product to more value-added functions.
Seegrid recently released a video about how American Packaging Corporation selected their robotic industrial trucks instead of automated guided vehicles.
