VICTOR, N.Y., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Retrotech has been included on Food Logistics 2014 Top Green Providers list. Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain.

It was Retrotech's recent modernization and retrofitting of a dairy customer's automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) that placed them on the list. After completion of the project, the customer achieved a decrease in their carbon footprint. They significantly shortened the travel time of pallets from two minutes to 30 seconds after adding extra inbound and outbound pickup and deposit stations, while incorporating additional conveyor technologies. They were also able to store irregular-sized and bulging pallets in the ASRS. This diminished the use of fork lifts for pallet stacking and retrieval, reducing environmental pollution.

"We are very pleased to be on the 2014 Top Green Providers list. Companies often think that the best way to become 'greener' and increase efficiencies is to simply replace old equipment with new," said Paul Deveikis, Retrotech's chief executive officer. "The reality is that retrofitting older equipment allows customers to enhance their systems with newer parts and software controls that meet the more stringent energy standards, improve performance of current supply chain activities with less investment, as well as reduce landfill waste from the scrapping of equipment."

According to Food Logistics, the Top Green Providers list focuses on sustainability in the global food supply chain with profiles of companies that are exceeding industry standards in their sector. This year's list includes food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs and transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, and others whose products and services are driving sustainability from farm to fork.
