The Crisplant tilt tray sortation system was a sight for sore eyes for end users who visited the Beumer Group (Booth 2315) at Modex 2012. 

Crisplant, which was acquired by Beumer in 2009 and re-launched last year, supplies a line of tilt tray sorters that complements the company’s existing line of materials handling equipment to provide a comprehensive line of solutions. 

According to Lance Anderson, Beumer’s director of sales for sortation and distribution, the line of Crisplant tilt tray sorters is supported by a team of technicians and spare parts from its New Jersey headquarters location.  This enables a rapid response to customer needs in the form of technical support or overnight parts delivery. 

With the software, technical support and steel components provided locally, there is roughly a 50/50 split of responsibility between Europe and the United States, which lets the experts be the experts, says Anderson.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
