Hytrol Product Line Enters "Coolest Thing Made in Arkansas" Competition

JONESBORO, Ark.—Hytrol is among the 16 companies to be featured in “The Coolest Thing Made in Arkansas” competition. The annual event focuses on unique and innovative items made in the Natural State.

Hytrol, which just celebrated its 75th year in business, has been headquartered in Jonesboro since 1962. It also recently expanded to a second facility in Fort Smith. The company manufactures conveyors and other essential technology for the material handling industry.

The Hytrol product nominated is the ProSort series of sliding shoe sorters. These conveyors are used in a variety of industries to quickly sort product to their proper destinations. They use divert “shoes” which move diagonally across the conveyor to push the product onto a take-away line.

“What makes this product ‘cool’ is how quickly and smoothly it can move packages,” said Chief Revenue Officer Mitch Smith. “The speed and efficiency of this product allows customers to receive their e-commerce orders even faster. The ProSort series of sliding shoe sorters can move small envelopes all the way up to large furniture boxes. This technology complements the miles of conveyor we build each year right here in the great state of Arkansas.”

The contest is a single-elimination bracket where companies go head-to-head competing for votes in order to advance to the next round. Those interested in voting can do so once every day starting June 26th by visiting:(coolestthinginarkansas.com).
