Floralife Inc. makes flower foods, pretreatments, and other chemicals used on cut flowers. Prior to installing Flexicon conveyors, workers would use a forklift to lift 50-pound drums for dumping raw ingredients into the packaging machines' surge hoppers. Using Flexicon flexible screw conveyors to transfer material from a blender to the surge hoppers eliminates the need to lift 50-pound drums with a forklift, then have an operator go up on a platform to dump them. No time is wasted waiting for a forklift to become available. The Flexicon conveyors are also reliable and require very little maintenance.
