Let’s Get Ready to RUMBLE!!!

Welcome product handling fans! ARE  YOU  READY?!  The day is finally here!  The day we begin a new journey…the day we start our very own company blog! We hope you are as excited as we are. We have so many great things planned. But first, let me tell you a little bit more about us.

“…And in this corner, we have Shuttleworth”

For nearly 55 years, Shuttleworth has collaborated with their customers to develop product handling solutions to meet specific industry challenges and needs– delivering value through integrated automation. With that said, we are more than simply a conveyor manufacturer.

“But what makes you different?” you ask?

Our Slip-Torque® technology, of course!  Developed by founder Jim Shuttleworth, Slip-Torque revolutionized the definition and capabilities of traditional conveyor rollers and can do some pretty amazing things. Designed by our experienced team (who you will meet in the weeks to come) our custom conveyor and roller surfaces are built to increase line efficiency, maximize profitability and minimize risk. In the near future, we will be talking more about the many benefits of Slip-Torque in greater detail – in the meantime, you can visit our website at www.shuttleworth.com to learn more about this technology and some of our other incredible products and devices.

You may be thinking “WHY” have we started to blog? Simple! We want a place for our customers, colleagues, and industry partners to find the latest on industry trends and topics, product updates, emerging technologies, company news, and perhaps we will sprinkle in some employee and partner spotlights – all brought to you by our highly knowledgeable and experienced team. (Yes, you may even hear from more exciting people than myself.) You’ll get the latest information on product handling including robotics engineering design from the talented Michael Liu, our engineering manager.  Learn about some of Shuttleworth’s applications solutions from industry experts like Steve Beavans, our lead Applications Engineering Manager with over 35 years of experience.  And, hear some of our customer challenges facing our sales force from Tim Reder, VP-Sales and the solutions provided from the project management side from Matt Reich, Project Manager.  We’ll also share aftermarket parts and service support advice from Jason Worster from our Parts and Field Service Support Team.  And, there’s more – much more to come from the people that make Shuttleworth continue to be a leader in proven product handling solutions!

Well, now that we have the introductions out of the way, we want to hear from our fans! (yes, YOU who are reading this post…and, thank you). Feel free to leave a comment or email us and give us your thoughts. And please, if you find us even mildly knowledgeable or entertaining, bookmark this page, subscribe and share with a friend or colleague!

And so, there it is ladies and gentleman,

I am pleased to introduce the first-ever Shuttleworth product handling blog, “The Collaborative Conveyor…”
