Address Workforce Shortages and Safety Head On
Jobs in food processing are physically demanding, presenting more workforce challenges than other industries as seasonal and holiday demand increase. Automation can always help streamline operations, which is why we offer PeakLogix to help you save through automation by designing data-driven solutions that increase your cost savings.
Operators deal with discomfort, fatigue, and unexpected injuries. Having the right equipment can reduce the chance of workplace injury and fatigue, compensating for being short-handed or training an inexperienced team. Let us help you account for shifting workforce and operational needs with purpose-built, reliable equipment.
How are you ensuring your workplace safety isn’t at risk during periods of short staffing?
Telematics will ensure only trained and qualified operators have access to trucks, tracks training updates, and more, all to ultimately reduce the negative impact that new employees might create
Utilizing an end rider can offer over 30% more floor space. It can also help alleviate shock and vibration by 30%, allowing your operators to feel more comfortable. The end rider puts safety at the forefront, offering platform, and fork lights to help brighten up visibility in low-lit areas to reduce damage
Keep Up with Raw Material Cost Increases While Staying Sustainable
Raw materials keep getting more expensive and the demand for sustainability is continuing to create additional costs, which is why we’re here to help you find ways to keep up with those changes.

Keep up with changing regulations, reduce food contamination, and ensure you’re operating within the Food Safety Modernization Act!
How do you prevent contamination around your food products?
