Not every company needs the most sophisticated conveyor system and complex computer controls. The top priority for many operations, particularly in the small to mid-size range, is basic and reliable equipment. They want to be able to ramp up quickly when order volume dictates. And when they do add new equipment, they want it up and running fast.
Hytrol's "Stockyard" service is tailor made for companies with these kinds of requirements. Hytrol guarantees 24-hour shipment of more than 500 models of conveyor equipment in 2,500 sizes from the Stockyard. In fact, if the order is not shipped within that tight timeframe, Hytrol pays the freight.

Making Use Of The Stockyard
This communication services company has experienced numerous benefits from the Hytrol Stockyard. The company provides a range of printing and media replication services, including assembly, fulfillment, and distribution. The fulfillment center focuses on two main activities: assembly of printed material with CD-ROMs & computer media as well as end-user print order fulfillment.
The 150,000 square-foot operation incorporates a variety of conveyor equipment, including belt, horizontal power, live roller, and gravity. But when the facility opened, only a limited amount of powered equipment was in place. As the business grew, they added more and more equipment — most of which was ordered from the Hytrol Stockyard.
Though the company's fulfillment center is growing steadily, it still needs to remain flexible. For operations like this one, the approach of adding equipment as needed from the Stockyard makes a lot of sense.
- Ordering is fast and easy.
- Installation is simple.
- And downtime is virtually non-existent.
Over the past two years in particular, the company has seen significant productivity improvements from the additional conveyor equipment put in place. Production has effectively tripled at the site, while overall labor costs have dropped significantly.
Companies with a need for reliable and trouble-free equipment can enjoy these same types of benefits from Hytrol equipment and Stockyard service. Plus, all units arrive on site pre-assembled, minimizing start-up time and maximizing cost savings. These are the kinds of advantages that a growing number of small and mid-size operations are finding hard to resist.
