GREENVILLE, N.C. (November 14, 2017) – From growing fulfillment requirements to labor challenges, today’s operations face a variety of external pressures and require versatile, reliable solutions to get the job done. Plant Engineering recognizes the Yale® GP040-060MX as such a solution, naming it a finalist for its annual Product of the Year awards in the material handling systems category. From manufacturing to retail and distribution, the MX combines productivity, operator comfort, dependability, simple service and low total cost of operation into a best-fit package.
With the ability to design over a trillion configurations, the MX Series is a customizable solution with uncompromised performance capable of boosting overall efficiency and productivity.
