RILA's Retail Supply Chain Conference plays host to the Top 10 U.S. retailers and many top supply chain executives all under one roof. The Retail Supply Chain Conference is the must-attend event of the year for supply chain executives. Nine of the top 10 retail companies attend each year.

As the largest conveyor manufacturer in North America and a leading provider of advanced material handling solutions, we are excited to exhibit at the Retail Supply Chain Conference and to have the opportunity to meet with retail and product manufacturer executives from across the globe. Our material handling industry experts will be on-site and available to meet with interested attendees. In attendance will be David Peacock, president, Chuck Waddle, vice president of business development; Mitch Smith, director of product management; and Boyce Bonham, chief engineer.
Peacock explained Hytrol's participation at this year's conference is important for both the company and for the attendees. "These are exciting times for the industry," he said. "The tremendous growth at Hytrol—both with incoming orders growing 40 percent year over year and with our plant expansion growing our capacity to sustain our quick lead time—makes these very exciting times at Hytrol as well!"
He said the on-going transformation occurring within retail distribution has aligned nicely with the company's recent initiatives. "Our product offerings enable the user to improve throughput at a lower cost per unit than they have seen to date," Peacock said.
