Seegrid Materials Handling New Hire Expert Bill Edgy Featured in Robotics Tomorrow
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2013 -- According to a recent article published in Robotics Tomorrow, Seegrid hired Bill Edgy as regional sales manager and reports to Derek Roberts, Director of Sales. Edgy will cover the Southeast region of the US. The new hire was to accommodate the sales growth Seegrid has been experiencing lately.
Edgy shared his excitement about joining the Seegrid team, "The Seegrid technology of vision guidance will allow my customers to be more productive, more efficient, and better prepared to service customers' needs. This excites me for several reasons; it sets Seegrid apart from most of our customers and makes us a value added partner instead of just another vendor. Seegrid is constantly looking for product enhancements, new products, and new ways to apply the vision guided technology to other types of material handling equipment. All of these things increase sales and that really excites me."
John Hayes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, North America, explained why the dramatic staff increase is necessary noting, "We have seen a 350% increase in Seegrid robotic industrial truck orders year to date when compared to 2012. Also known as flexible AGVs, this extraordinary growth is proof the manufacturing sector has recovered. Material handling and distribution centers are expanding quickly because the demand for our products has never been stronger. We are adding talented and experienced staff to ensure the quality and customer care continues to be a hallmark of our company, our brand, and our reputation."
One of the elements for the Seegrid growth model is the "Try before you buy program." It allows potential customers to see how the Seegrid technology operates in their plants and distribution centers or warehouses, assuring that it is the right product every time. Seegrid has eliminated the guess work in selecting an AGV.
