between. At WSA-USA we embraced these learnings and we are better for it as we move into the new year. “2020 was a record year for WSA-USA and with that came tremendous growth within all departments across our organization. In just the last 18 months, our Field Ser- vice team has tripled in size. We expanded our Cincinnati based parts warehouse. We grew our U.S. based Controls and Engineering departments. Our automation partnership with KTC is now deeply rooted with multiple full plant con- veyor projects now completed and running successfully in a tag free, fully automated environment. Our commitment has always been to reinvest in the business and to contin- ually improve our customer support mechanisms as our business continues to grow. This will forever be the case. “2020 was also a year in which we received the first order for our vertical rack (AS/RS) storage system. The Mid-West based greenfield project is set to go live this fall and will include our Vertical Rack Storage System for WIP, as well as our iFAS controlled fully automated plastic belt conveyor system from corrugator through converting and finished goods. This is just the first of three vertical solu- tions that will be installed here in the U.S. over the next 18 months. It’s such an exciting product and one that will change the way in which our customers look at WIP and Finished Good Storage. “Lastly, we are proud to announce the launch of our new website. In the early stages of the pandemic, when things really slowed down, we took the opportunity to completely redesign our aging website. The new site is so much more informative and really provides our custom- ers with an engaging platform that interactively introduces them to all our state-of-the-art solutions. I encourage ev- eryone to check it out. “WSA offers the most comprehensive range of material handling equipment for the corrugated industry including full plant automated conveyor systems, centralized pallet inserting systems, automatic and semi-auto prefeeders, bundle handling systems, robotic palletizers, vertical rack storage systems and much more.” Visit www.wsa-usa. com .
