FlexQube has received the first order from a company building a new plant in Aurora just outside Denver, Colorado. The customer has chosen to implement the Liftrunner tugger train system paired with pallet & shelf trolleys from FlexQube. The first order consists of 134 shelf trolleys and 150 pallet trolleys, and a Liftrunner train. This first order is worth about 1.9MSEK ($200,000).
This customer has used other material handling cart suppliers in the past, including many of our primary competitors. FlexQube was chosen because of the ability to customize our carts to adjust their ever-changing needs.
FlexQube CEO Anders Fogelberg comments, “Giving our customers the freedom to change their solutions and not be locked into only one design but a concept with the option of many designs is rewarding for me and for FlexQube. This customer was looking for more flexibility, because in the past the stiffness & inflexibility that comes with welded solutions hadn’t matched how quickly they were needing to adjust.”
The Liftrunner tugger train adds a level of lean to their overall process, making the loading and unloading of materials much more efficient. The Liftrunner frames can be loaded & unloaded on either side, giving the operators much more freedom when delivering materials.
The delivery for this order will take place at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. The customer will use their employees to assemble the carts.
