Alfacon Solutions Promotes Chris Hind to Mechanical Engineer Manager

Alfacon Solutions announced the recent promotion of Chris Hind as the new Mechanical Engineering Manager. Previously, Hind was Project Manager and Project Management Supervisor for Alfacon. Hind shared that he enjoys most about working for Alfacon is the wide variety of unique materials handling applications they develop and engineer. “This pushes us to continuously innovate and evolve our designs and this keeps things interesting. The typical project life cycle is lengthy enough to get fully immersed in it, while not so long as seems to drag on and get stale,” added Hind.

With a focus on customized solutions, Hind has experience with multiple complex mechanical systems including both hand and foot parking brakes with automatic self-adjusting cable tension, compact heavy-duty screw jacks, and tire hoists. He oversaw the design, development, testing, and product launch for various OEM vehicle manufactures.

CEO John Murdoch is proud to have Hind on the team. “Hind captures the company’s hands-on approach when analyzing clients’ challenges and developing solutions based on experience and innovation. The combination of standard and custom engineered components enables Alfacon to create unique material handling solutions tailored to each client; this customized differentiator positions the company as one of the leading material handling manufacturers in North America.”

Alfacon Solutions, the leaders in Engineered-to-Order and Custom Conveyor, Lift, and materials handling solutions, will be exhibiting at MODEX 2018 April 9-12, 2018 in Atlanta, GA at booth #B655.
