Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/18/2014 -- Seegrid is improving distribution centers. Seegrid robotic industrial trucks, flexible automated guided vehicles (AGVs), are revolutionizing the movement of materials in manufacturing and distribution environments. The GT10 Tow Tractor earned Seegrid a nomination to the 2014 Edison Awards in the Applied Technology, Industrial Productivity category. Anthony Horbal, Chief Executive Officer of Seegrid, described how the company is breaking ground in distribution while decreasing costs and employee injuries.
Horbal explained, “Rejecting the idea that plants and distribution centers must be shut down for months to prepare for material handling innovations and technology, only Seegrid can bring in a flexible AGV and have it running on the same day. That singular innovation is imperative to the material handling innovation breakthrough for which Seegrid is known and capturing best-practice processes. Seegrid’s ‘Try Before You Buy’ innovation also ensures that this material handling AGV is the right solution before a purchase decision is made; no other AGV provider offers this innovative no-risk guarantee.”
Seegrid recently announced entrance into the European market. Seegrid had a very successful 2013 in North America with sales increasing by nearly 400%. Seegrid has expanded market share and scope of vision-guided AGVs to Europe and soon throughout the Middle East. Yale Materials Handling announced at MODEX 2014 in Atlanta that Guided by Seegrid technology will be available on their product line this year.
2014 Edison Award winners will be announced April 29-30 in San Francisco, CA. The elegant, black-tie-preferred evening inside San Francisco’s iconic Julia Morgan Ballroom is focused on recognizing and honoring the best in innovations and innovators. The highlight of the program is the announcement of the 2014 Edison Award new product and service innovation winners.
