The result is they can confirm undeniably that the solution being developed will achieve their productivity goals. Demonstrating the breadth of our technologies, and the depth of our engineering design expertise, in one location is a great benefit for our clients – and a huge competitive advantage for us.”
The Tech Center has been configured to exhibit Wynright’s full portfolio of products and services, with equipment running in a continuous loop. To enhance the experience, Wynright subject matter experts are on-site to present each capability.

“A lot of work and planning went into the design and execution of the Technical Center, but the result made it worth all the extra time and effort,” said Joe O’Connor, Marketing Director, and Manager of the Tech Center. “We not only have a place to showcase our current technologies, but we now have a working laboratory for our newest ones – a place where we can integrate the next wave of materials handling equipment and test them under the conditions in which they will be used. It furthers our mission to assist our clients in using their space more efficiently while delivering enhanced productivity.”
