Distribution Centers Increase ROI Turning to Automation Says Founder of No Risk Automation


Monroe, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2014 -- No Risk Automation (, founded by John Hayes, was developed to inform and protect automation decision-makers. Hayes advocates that the manufacturing sector is the most common prospect for his services. Manufacturing is defined and predictable with a steady state flow of raw materials in and finished product out. The pick and drop locations are well defined and there is an easily defined facility process.

Hayes discussed how companies that are purely distributors often think they are less automated because it is simply harder to automate, therefore too costly. Hayes explained, “This is not true. For instance, smaller sections or what we will call islands of automation can be easily automated and provide quick Return on Investment (ROI). They can grow automation from there, and find a low risk bedrock from which to grow automation in any facility.”
