Odd Shapes and Custom Material Handling

Customize for your facility needs

Material handling doesn’t always require a standard solution. Your facility may have specialty equipment or hard to maneuver areas that standard material handling equipment can’t reach. This often means employees are required to lift and maneuver materials in awkward positions, creating a significant risk for injury. This is the type of challenge that our engineers at Factory Supply are ready to take on.

Often custom solutions are necessary when customers are looking to lift and move odd shaped products that have an uneven surface and/or have multiple dimensions. The engineering team at Factory Supply can fabricate or assemble custom products with standard parts that can lift, angle, rotate and move irregular products while causing no damage to the product and meeting all specified requirements.

Our process

  • Our material handling specialists will start by visiting your site in order to analyze exactly what material handling equipment is needed to optimize the ergonomics at your workplace.
  • Following this visit, we will offer our expert professional advice and present to you our recommended material handling solution.
  • Once the system has been agreed upon we will design, manufacture and install it.
  • When the system has been installed our material handling specialist will come and train your staff on how to properly use the equipment.
Injury incident: Accident Report Detail

At approximately noon on July 21, 2004, Employee #1, with Volt Services Group (a temporary employer) was working in the utility room in the “Old Dehydrator” at LiDestri Foods Inc. (the secondary employer) in Fresno, CA. He was assigned by LiDestri Foods to organize the paint cabinet in the maintenance area of the utility room. A Maintenance Manager of LiDestri Foods directed Employee #1 to move small engines that were in the aisle to the back wall. When he attempted to pull and reposition a large 600-lb motor, Employee #1 felt something “snap” in his back, fell to ground, and called emergency services from his cellular phone. Another supervisor passing through the area found Employee #1 on the ground. He was transported to University Medical Center in Fresno, where he was hospitalized for swelling and pain caused by a pinched lumbar nerve.
