LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the National Beer Wholesale Association’s annual convention starts this week in Las Vegas, Twinlode Automation today released the following statement by CEO Skip Eastman regarding industry growth, trends and how it is shaping the company’s planning for 2020.
“The beer industry continues to see steady growth in the U.S. and beyond with some of the new trends in flavored malted beverages and seltzers paired with the consistency of cornerstone brands and the consumer base that keeps the industry one of the most promising segments for beverages.
“Not only is the growth spurring larger and larger warehouse projects for brands that need to scale their supply chain planning, but we see the need for engineering and more technical expertise as well. This comes from a stronger focus on weather and seismic-related considerations in regions globally, and the rapid pace at which code regulations change. These regulations vary from region to region, creating a potential hardship for distributors that don’t understand what an error in warehouse planning can mean for their operation.
“Companies like Twinlode Automation are working hard to provide customers with the correct expertise and recommending projects start with an emphasis on analytics and an engineering perspective to be sure code compliance is handled, calculations are accurate and the customer’s operation stays that way as it begins and continues successful operation.
“As beer sales and skus continue to trend up, distributors must ensure that their warehouse requirements meet code compliance trends the same way. What is applicable today may not be in the future, and that rapid change requires expertise. Twinlode Automation has exactly what you need to make that happen.”
