LAKEWOOD, N.J., Feb. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UNEX Manufacturing, Inc., the trusted industry leader in providing innovative order picking solutions, announces that SpeedCell Product Manager, Brian Chan, has been named a 2019 Provider Pros to Know from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. Brian was selected for his strong business leadership, interpersonal skills and dedication to customer service, helping customers adopt and implement UNEX’s high-density storage solution, SpeedCell.

“Businesses today, especially e-commerce companies, are taxed with keeping up with order demand, the fulfillment of orders, and SKU proliferation, without having to add additional warehouse space,” said Brian C. Neuwirth, President of UNEX Manufacturing. “Brian Chan came to UNEX in our SpeedCell acquisition and he has been instrumental in promoting the revolutionary storage system and acquiring new customers who are able to multiply storage capacities up to 60% with SpeedCell.”

“Every year we receive more submissions from outstanding supply chain leaders. It’s evidence of the growth in the supply chain profession as well as the importance of the profession within companies. Supply & Demand Chain Executive congratulates the 2019 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know recipients. Our Pros to Know listing showcases the leaders and innovators shaping the profession and making substantial impact on their companies,” says John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “We commend this year’s recipients for their achievements in supply chain and for paving the way for the next generation of exceptional supply chain leaders. This year’s recipients embody the commitment to transformative supply chain tools and processes, earning these individuals a rightful place in this year’s Pros to Know listing.”

UNEX SpeedCell recently won the 2018 Material Handling Product News Products of the Year Reader’s Choice Award. UNEX SpeedCell is dynamic, high-density storage solution designed to save time, space and money, such as compressing 200 feet of rack or shelving into 40 feet of highly organized space, providing more pick facings and greater SKU density. SpeedCell is made of high-strength textiles suspended from a patented steel track system that integrates directly into existing pallet rack beams. Complimenting the UNEX Span-Track Carton Flow and Flow Cell product lines, SpeedCell brings the added dimension of a high-density storage to the pick, put or assembly line.
