Wynright Celebrates 40 Years of Helping Enterprises Optimize and Value-Engineer Supply Chain Operations

Intralogistics specialist appreciates milestone but looks ahead to delivering the next generation of material handling

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill.--()--When a company achieves a significant anniversary (i.e. one with a zero or five as the last digit) there is normally a lot of focus on the past. Yet while Wynright Corporation, a leading independent, U.S.-based provider of intelligent material handling systems, is proud of the innovations the intralogistics company has developed since opening its doors as Warehouse Equipment, Inc. on February 15, 1972, it's the company's next generation of material handling systems that gets everyone there excited.

“The supply chain industry and the world have changed significantly since we first started”

“The supply chain industry and the world have changed significantly since we first started,” said Mike Scheck, Chairman of the privately held Wynright Corporation. “The pace at which things move today is so much faster, and customer expectations as to what constitutes a quality experience have grown so much, that enterprises are constantly being challenged to keep up. Our ‘innovation by design' approach to supply chain challenges, such as our Autoroll+™ motor-driven rollers that only activate when a package is on the conveyor and robotic arms that not only stack, but also cube loads in the truck, are helping manufacturers and distribution centers break through barriers in order to improve productivity, efficiency, cost management and labor usage.”

One significant difference for Wynright over material handling equipment manufacturers is its greater focus on the strategic side of projects rather than trying to shoehorn a standard set of solutions into every application. This focus is driven by Wynright's deep engineering staff. The company has more than 200 engineers, integrators and project managers in-house who custom-design systems to deliver the greatest value to customers. Yet unlike most material handling system suppliers, Wynright's engineers will include third-party products in the design if that is the best solution for the customer.

“We take a holistic approach to system design,” Scheck said. “In our view products should fortify the solution, rather than the engineers simply supporting products. That start-to-finish approach allows us to apply the right products for the job and deliver the maximum value for our customers. We believe it's the smart approach to solving today's biggest supply chain and distribution center challenges.”

In keeping with Wynright's forward-looking mindset, the company is debuting a new website ( that for the first time brings all of the company's capabilities, including its system integration, under a single banner. The site will make it easier for customers to leverage the breadth of Wynright's services and product offerings.

“Staying out ahead of the trends in supply chain execution is critical to the success of our customers,” Scheck said. “Wynright is dedicated to providing the innovative systems, expertise and support to help our clients keep their businesses on the move.”
