In addition to its leading edge conveyor and sortation equipment, the Wynright Integrator Partner Program covers the entire range of Daifuku and Wynright technologies, including light and voice-directed fulfillment systems, robotics, automated storage and retrieval systems, AGVs, mezzanines, and steel structures. The extent of this program portfolio and the appointment of two experienced account executives is a reflection of the high regard Wynright places on its Integrator Partners.
