What you need to know before you select a conveyor system.

What you need to know before you select a conveyor system. 


Asking the right questions of your supplier can assure that you have the right system for the job.

Just like the products they carry, conveyor equipment comes in all shapes and sizes.

Before you buy a system, you need to be certain it is designed for the work you intend.

Too large a system wastes money. Too small a system could damages product or create a bottle-necks. The key is to design a system that is the best of both worlds and that is where we come in. At General Conveyor Inc we just don’t sell you a conveyor we design it to work.
