You Name It. We Can Handle It.

It All Began with Plastic Bottles in 1972

Our automated material handling roots began with plastic bottles, but our forward thinking has led us to do more; MUCH more. Whatever material handling need you have, we can meet it. From egg cartons to ice cream containers, cases, pails, paint cans and bottles, we have a custom automated material handling solution for you.

In my opinion, Custom Metal Designs is the only way to go when performing the conversions; I highly recommend Andrew Botsford and his team.
