JONESBORO, Ark.— Hytrol will kick off its 2018 Convention on Wednesday, Oct. 10 when integration partners from all over the world converge on the Mid-south. The three-day event entails tours of its expanded production facility and research and development center as well as in-depth workshops on Hytrol products and material handling technology.


“We are truly excited about this year’s convention,” said Hytrol President David Peacock. “It is a great way to connect with our integration partners and share with them the advances being made at Hytrol. It also provides the IPs an opportunity to tell us about their needs and how we can partner to meet those opportunities.”


The convention will introduce integrators to Hytrol’s 2018 new products. Conveyors Gapper-O, Gapper-D, SBC 45/60/90, NBEZ and ProSort 1400 and software EZLogic® 4.0 and EZLogic OS will be described in detail by Hytrol executives before their official launch later this month.


Hytrol sells through an exclusive network of integration partners. The network includes more than 100 independent businesses worldwide who can assist with material handling projects of all shapes and sizes.


The first Hytrol convention was held 55 years ago in 1963, shortly after the company moved its headquarters to Jonesboro, and included the plant’s official grand opening. Hytrol Founder Tom Loberg created the convention as a way to show the integration partners Hytrol’s production facilities and to include in-depth discussions on products in research and development.
