Customer: MFA, Inc. – Palmyra, MO
Project: New Barge Receiving System
Challenge: MFA, Inc was suffering from a very in-efficient receiving system. It involved filling four rail cars from the barge, then moving the rail cars around the facility to unload the cars in three different buildings.
Solution: Waconia Manufacturing, Inc. designed and constructed a system of conveyors to route the product directly from barges in to any of the main storage buildings. This provides a completely automated system, which reduces manpower and improves product quality through reduced handling of the product. It also provides a safer environment for employees.
