Cirrus Tech Signs Eagle Rock of Colorado to provide Our First Higher Levels of Automation Solution!
On August 18th, Cirrus Tech signed contracts with Eagle Rock of Colorado to its first Higher Levels of Automation Project. The system will grow with them from 10 million cases a year to over 17 million cases a year all while providing them with a 3 – 5 year ROI. With the construction of the expansion to house the system and the integration of the Cirrus system, it will be a while before you can see this system up and running. But it is coming! As an aside, to put that system in and to run 17M cases a year out of it, it took just shy of 200,000 SQ feet.
The Economos family is putting a lot of faith in Cirrus Tech by entrusting us with a system of this magnitude. CEO Steve Economos says, “Eagle Rock spent over a year interviewing and vetting automation providers, going on site visits and speaking with other industry experts and distributors. Once we all agreed on the best design for our automation, we spent the time gathering data and doing an independent and full simulation of our data with all of the speeds and feeds of each component in the system. Once we were comfortable with that, it really came down to, who do we trust? We’ve been working with Cirrus in our Atlanta location for over 8 years and they have exceeded expectations at every turn. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this game changing technology that will serve us well in Colorado for decades to come.”
So, what is this system? There is some layer picking, delayering, conveyance, etc. But because this will be so transformative in the beverage warehouses of the future, we hope you will understand that we can’t share all of the details here. But if you reach out to us, we will gladly share the full concept with you and show you the simulation that will explain it all!
