Engineered Material Handling Systems

As an industry leading material handling systems integrator, TriFactor provides warehouse and distribution center design engineering services along with turnkey material handling systems integration. The process that we have established over the years is centered around a collaborative design that incorporates input from our customer's engineering, operations, information technology and customer service personnel.  We use this input as the basis for our system designs.

After our designs are complete and it is time to integrate the multiple pieces of material handling equipment together, our project managers coordinate all of the trades including mechanical installation, electrical installation, PLC or HMI controls engineering, Warehouse Management System and Warehouse Controls Systems integration.  With constant communications to all stakeholders and under the many safety requirements of our customers, we have a proven history of successful complex projects to refer.  For a more comprehensive understanding of the equipment that we can provide, please view our TriFactor Line Card.

Case Studies

We have selected a few case studies from projects within the health care and retail industries.  These four case studies reflect our capabilities within both distribution and manufacturing environments in Florida and throughout the United States.  In addition to these case studies and others, which are available on our case studies page, we have completed projects with several Fortune 500 companies but due to confidentiality agreements or at the request of our customers, our published case study documentation does not encompass the entire breadth of our customer or market base.
