“The flexibility of the Creative Division along with the experience and talent of our teams has proven to be a powerful asset in today’s changing marketplace,” notes Angstrom.
At its facilities in Cleveland, OH, a $3 million makeover of AG Midwest’s in-house fulfillment operations has been completed. The new RFID (radio frequency identification) driven product dispensing system along with an integrated PTL (pick-to-light) module and master control system has increased fulfillment capacity by a factor of three.
