Online PR News – 01-May-2014 –Therigy LLC, a leading pharmaceutical industry consulting company, recommends custom manufactured, modular plug and play conveyor systems from SmartMove Conveyors.


Dino Martino, RPh, Senior Vice President of Operations at Therigy. LLC discussed his experience with Paula Wright, National Sales Director of SmartMove Conveyor, LLC.


“By incorporating SmartMove conveyance systems in our designs, I have been able to provide solutions for mid-sized specialty pharmacy operations that need a way to handle increased volume as they grow. When certain automation systems are not yet warranted or are out of reach from a financial perspective, SmartMove has been able to deliver opportunities that my clients thought would not be possible. These sophisticated, well made, and affordable options have been a fantastic feature to the operations that we design; they are finding their way into facilities that didn’t consider automation because they believed it was price prohibitive. The team at SmartMove have worked very hard with me on a number of occasions to customize solutions for even the most unique situations; they have been great to work with”.


For example, when Therigy client(s) want to move their product from pharmacy work stations to a receiving package area, Martino typically recommends a long line conveyor system with E-stops on each end. “SmartMove Conveyors are great for applications where the pharmacist is working on the line”, said Dino Martino.
