Pack Expo 2017
Hey everyone! Thank you very much for stopping in to visit us at Pack Expo in Las Vegas this year. I am doing my best to get in contact with you all. I always love seeing our old friends, as well as meeting new ones at the shows. It can be pretty stressful in the days leading up to the show. This year we arrived only to be told that they had no record of our freight. I seriously thought you guys were going to walk up to booth S-8133 to see me sitting on a stool with an empty cup and a cardboard sign reading: "Freight lost. Need leads. Anything helps." Everything always works out in the end though, and I hope you guys enjoyed our booth design. This is a really great industry to have been born into, and I consider myself lucky to be apart of it. I was invited to be a part of the "Women's Leadership Network" breakfast this year, and seeing a whole room full of women in the industry was fantastic. You see, I grew up with great role models in the form of my mother Cathy and two other System Builder presidents: WHM's Joan Morgan and TNA's Dana McGuirt. I was in grad school before I ever realized that there was a glass ceiling to be danced upon, in the words of the speaker. It was heartening to see so many other women, especially those just coming into packaging and automation careers forming those mentorships. What many of you don't know is that Rhett and Cathy, my parents, and two of the four founders of Flex-Line Automation have their wedding anniversary in late September. Th... Read More

Pack Expo 2017 is quickly approaching. We are finalizing booth designs and throwing a few unique ideas around to try to have a little fun with things this year. That's why I always love the Vegas show. It is a little more laid back than the one in Chicago, and I feel more comfortable letting our "hair down" as it were. It has been growing too, I fully expect them to add days to it at some point. There is an awful lot to experience there in two days. I'm sure that by now you have realized that Flex-Line isn't the kind of company to hound you about coming to see us, and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon. I can tell you that there is a nice little picture at the top of our home page that has a link to free registration for the show. So if you would like to come visit us and see the crazy things that we are doing this year click the link and swing on by. We will be waiting for you September 25-27th!... Read More

Did you attend Pack Expo this year in Chicago? We did, and we got a lot of attention. People spent a lot of time stopping to gape at the “drawbridge” conveyor, an innovative box moving solution that we designed for the show. It functions as both an elevator and a singulator, utilizing a combination of friction top chain and back pressure to feed a variety of box sizes up an incline. Are you interested in learning more? Contact us for more information, a complimentary quote, or just to say that you like the concept. We always love hearing from you. Did you miss the Chicago show? Are you going to be in Las Vegas for Pack Expo 2015? We are. Make sure to include a stop by booth # S-6303 in you show plans! If you thought the “drawbridge” conveyor was an interesting solution you won’t believe what we have planned. ... Read More
