Seegrid VP Says Materials Handling Automation is for Everyone


Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2013 -- John Hayes, VP of Sales and Marketing, North America for Seegrid discussed how manufacturers can determine if materials handling automation is right for them in the current company blog. Hayes explained, “Generally speaking, most of you reading this already know how to identify if material handling automation is right for you; it is that ‘what can be done?’ and ‘where do the gotchas lie?’”

Hayes noted the caveats in determining if materials handling automation is a good match for manufacturing or distribution facilities. Aside from the cost and the risk Hayes looked at how to identify these applications.

Hayes commented, “My virtual door is always open and I am more than willing to have a discussion with you about what you see. If I can shed any light on it based upon my decades of material handling automation experience, I am happy to help out. Just follow this link to schedule a meeting with me.”

Hayes is responsible for overseeing sales, business development, applications engineering, and marketing services for the company. With more than twenty years of industry experience, Hayes is an expert in materials handling, automated guided vehicles, and robotics.
