Project Management

Project planning and managing, from start to finish

Whatever the size of the project, from supplying a single conveying module to a totally integrated automated solution, Century will work closely with you to identify both current and possible future handling requirements before presenting the optimum proposals.

We carefully track each aspect of the project to ensure the delivery is on-time and on-budget.

Upon delivery of the system, a spare parts list is generated as well as a manual for all unit machines to ensure its functionality with minimal downtime.

Our approach has proven effective in numerous large material handling installations. We recognize the importance of collaboration during the project planning stage and subsequent monitoring throughout the implementation phase. We work to bring you up-front planning, realistic & agreed-upon milestones, and measurement criteria.

Century's approach to an integration project

Years of experience have taught us which questions to ask and what background to gather when approaching a new project. Systems developed from a solid foundation of facts produce positive results with no surprises.   Proper design and equipment application allow us to complete projects in a timely and predictable manner, insuring client satisfaction.

Each Century system installation is supported by a team consisting of:

  • The project sales engineer.
  • A project coordinator.
  • A specific mechanical engineer assigned to the project.
  • A specific electrical engineer assigned to the project.
The internal team meets no less than weekly from start to completion of a project, and collectively insures a successful system implementation.  The project coordinator will publish a bi-weekly progress report for the duration of your project.

Our commitment to safety

Century’s safety practices are strictly maintained at the highest level. All our systems are designed with modern safety standards implemented. This spans from simple hazard-yellow vehicle bollard guards and mezzanine safety nets to emergency stop buttons and system sensor alerts.

Our playing field is a distribution center or a warehouse facility, and with that, certain safety choices are implemented based on its layout. Height and width clearances for forklift and associate paths, compliance with other closed systems like fire suppression, compressors, temperature control, proper egress for associate and service access, and many other factors that depend on the facility setup and product handled.

On site, our construction equipment is maintained in safe and proper operating condition.  When working in facilities that have on-going operations, we realize the need for safety measures not only for our crew, but those who must operate near the installation area.  Work areas are identified and cordoned off to protect your warehouse associates as well as our technicians. 

Your team of material handlers, mechanics, and managers are briefed and trained on the proper operation of the equipment and it’s set of safety guidelines. Century’s goal is not to simply install a system, but to provide a complete and seamless integration.



How does Century complete a project?

We at Century understand the field commissioning and performance-testing phase of a newly installed system. As strategic partners in the implementation of a system, Century provides the technical assistance needed to deliver all the functionality that the client pays for and rightfully expects.

Century provides, as standard practice, full copies of as-built drawings, copies of all factory orders, containing equipment specifications, safety and service manuals, recommended spare parts inventory, and complete system documentation in physical and electronic form.  We also retain complete copies of this information at Century’s headquarters to aid in future maintenance and/or system expansion.
