Conveyor Installation Improves Productivity
A conveyor is an efficient way to move things from one area to another. These smooth-running systems are at the forefront of materials handling.
Whether your business is soda pop or ships, oil or ore, a conveyor system keeps your productivity rolling on down the line.
The success of conveyors relies on careful planning, expert installation and regular maintenance. Storee Construction designs, installs and repairs conveyor systems in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and beyond.
A History of Success
Since 1966, Storee has worked in commercial construction, focusing on industrial plants and factories. Manufacturing is the backbone of the Midwest. We’re proud to contribute to the success of industries in our region.
Modern conveyors debuted in the late 1800s giving coal miners a less labor-intensive way to move ore. By 1913, conveyors found their calling when Henry Ford used them to create the modern production line.
Today, the combination of conveyors, computers and robots are the ultimate in automation and efficiency. Storee is at the forefront of providing modern conveyor systems to our industrial partners.
Core Strengths of Conveyors
Applications for conveyor systems are diverse. As automation evolves, the need for conveyors will no doubt increase. At their core, these systems deliver three essential benefits.
It doesn’t matter if the setup is complicated or simple, here’s what well-designed conveyors do for your business:
- Save Space: Conveyors make the most of factory space. Companies often install a conveyor when production expands or changes. A conveyor can twist and turn, travel over several floors and work in multiple lines and tiers. An overhead conveyor takes advantage of space that might otherwise go unused.
- Save Time: When an employee handles an item, it slows production. A conveyor speeds throughput by keeping materials moving. It reduces the need for manual tasks. With the right design, a conveyor can decrease the number of touches and potentially reduce labor for your employees.
- Save Money: Saving space and time equates with saving money. If you use space efficiently, you can expand without relocating. With faster production, you can take on more work and explore opportunities. The efficiency of conveyors may reduce the cost maintenance, energy and equipment.
When Is It Time to Upgrade a Conveyor System?
Slow systems hurt production. They increase costs, delay shipments and endanger deadlines. Conveyor breakdowns halt work and may throw a wrench into your customer relationships.
Improving your facility by upgrading or replacing your conveyor enhances processes and saves money. With increased productivity, you could quickly recover your investment and improve your company’s bottom line.
Whether you want to reconfigure equipment or install an automated system, you need an experienced conveyor services contractor.

Support That Can Handle the Load
The experts at Storee look for your building’s structural constraints. We’ll make sure your facility can handle the added load of more conveyors.
For example, before installing an overhead, underground or floor-level conveyor, our team analyzes the support in your plant. If needed, we’ll recommend modifications to strengthen walls, floors and ceilings.
Structural improvements also remove other obstacles. For example, we can design facility layout to improve traffic flow and safety and open space for materials handling.
