Wynright Corporation, a US-based engineered solutions provider, manufacturer, and system integrator for the materials handling industry, announced today the opening of a new office in Cincinnati, OH.  “This expansion will allow us to both better serve our clients in this strategic market as well as solidify our position as a top provider of technology solutions”, explained John Dillon, President of Wynright Control Solutions.

Thomas Conrad, formerly the Controls Engineering Manager for Dematic/HK Systems Hebron, KY facility has been named Vice President of Operations for the new Wynright office.  “With extensive experience in the design and deployment of highly automated systems, Tom’s leadership will be key to executing our aggressive growth strategy”, concluded Dillon.

Confronted with the prospect of hitting the ground running, Conrad stated, “I’m fortunate that very quickly I was able to build a team of proven industry professionals, each with extensive experience, and together we are already building on Wynright’s clear technology platforms”.  Wynright Control Solutions is the turnkey controls and software division of Wynright Corporation, headquartered in Elk Grove, IL. 

In April, Wynright made its debut on Modern’s Top 20 Systems Suppliers list at No. 17 with $135 million in revenue.  A significant factor in Wynright’s recent growth was its 2009 acquisition of Tellurian, a robotics company in Texas, which was its fastest growing business unit in 2010.
