LCBO Wins Supply Chain Innovation Award with Hytrol Equipment

Hytrol is proud to recognize the Liquor Control Board of Ontario for receiving the Supply Chain Innovation Award presented by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) at its annual conference in San Diego, CA. The award acknowledged LCBO’s development and installation of Automated Random Case Palletization systems using equipment manufactured by Hytrol Conveyor Company and supplied through their Canadian integration partner, Norpak Handling Limited.

Last year, Norpak supplied LCBO with six double-deck systems, which have yielded impressive results for the organization’s operation. With this equipment, LCBO has been able to more than double its case throughput while significantly reducing labor hours. In addition, the automated system has reduced product damage.

Stewart Raynor, President of Norpak Handling, said that Norpak worked with this system from the beginning—first as design consultants, and then as equipment providers.

“It was apparent from the beginning the system would need to provide tremendous flexibility,” Raynor said. “During the design consulting phase of the project, Hytrol introduced the E24™ conveyor concept, which allowed us to achieve this flexibility while keeping the system maintenance-friendly.”
