Seegrid Demonstrates Lower Labor Costs for American Packaging at PACK EXPO


Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2012 -- American Packaging Corp. (APC), recently expanded its facility in Columbus, WI. With this expansion, company executives recognized they either needed to add labor or automate. There was a need to safely transport printed materials across the 100,000 square foot expansion and adding labor was just not an option. Instead, APC added Seegrid’s Robotic Industrial Trucks and reassigned the labor needed to transport the product to more value-added functions.
