When Plant Manager Keith Hussinger joined Kelly-Moore at its San Carlos, California headquarters, one thing was clear: Kelly-Moore’s manufacturing process had not kept pace with the advances in the company’s product lines. Some obvious areas needing improvement were the facility’s production flow inefficiencies and the ergonomic concerns with hand palletizing products weighing up to 70 pounds.

Kelly-Moore chose Intelligrated and its line of Alvey robotic palletizers to design the perfect solution. Despite strict space limitations, Intelligrated installed and delivered on time and on budget, helping the 5th largest paint company in the US yield big dividends with a 76% return on investment in the first year. This case study will walk you through the transformation of Kelly-Moore’s out-of-date building to an efficient, technically advanced facility. Please click here for to access the video case study.
