2017 Marks 2nd Consecutive Year of Record Growth for UNEX Manufacturing, Inc.
UNEX Manufacturing, Inc., the trusted industry leader in innovative order picking solutions, celebrates its second consecutive year of record business growth in 2017, adding dozens of new products and solution patents, major industry awards and global sales throughout North America, Central America, Europe and Asia. UNEX now employs over 100 people, making the company one of the largest employers in Ocean County in New Jersey.

“UNEX is a family owned and operated business since 1964, yet we have established ourselves as the worldwide leader in innovative order picking solutions that maximize space usage, increase pick rates and improve ergonomics at the point of pick,” said Brian C. Neuwirth, VP of Sales and Marketing, UNEX Manufacturing. “Our growth can be attributed to our hard-working people who work closely with clients to determine the best solutions we offer to improve processes and speed fulfillment. Another year of strong growth is a testament to our team’s dedication to serving our customers above and beyond their expectations.”

In 2017, UNEX was awarded several prestigious industry awards, including:
  • 2018 Most Valuable Supplier Award from MHEDA for 3rd consecutive year 
  • Food Logistics FL100+ for 3rd consecutive year 
  • SDCE 2017 Provider Pros to Know Award 
  • Food Logistics Top 100 Green Supply Chain Provider Awards 
  • Chosen as Finalist in New Jersey Manufacturing’s MJMEP 2017 Manufacturer of the Year Award 
  • SDCE Green Supply Chain Award for 3rd consecutive 
  • UNEX President Named to Board of Directors for MHEFI 

UNEX has invented dozens of products and solutions in response to customer needs, for which the company has been awarded patents. UNEX is the pioneer of Span-Track®, a universal flow track system that easily drops into any supporting frame or pallet rack. UNEX continues to define the current gravity conveyor marketplace with additional modules and features for Span-Track, making it one of the most durable, flexible, made-to-order picking solution available. UNEX Flow Cell®, Roller Rack®, Shelf Track®, Pallet Track®, Pick Shelves and Gravity Conveyor are made of durable steel materials that eliminate hang-ups on tracks and carry more weight and products than competitors. UNEX products speed throughput up to 150%, carry a 7-year warranty and increase space utilization by up to 50%.

One recent invention includes the UNEX Pick-Plank, a mechanical order picking device that affixes to a pallet and converts each pick slot from a static to a dynamic storage position, allowing all items on a pallet to be accessible from the aisle. It is suitable for case picking less than full pallet from a man aboard order picker, eliminating the need for the picker to have to reach or crawl into the storage position. UNEX introduced industrial carts recently as well, used to move materials, parts, boxes and components from one location to another within assembly operations. Carts are available with open shelving or racks to hold cartons or parts, improving picking operations and boosting productivity.

UNEX helps manufacturers and assemblers boost productivity, improve ergonomics, eliminate waste and maximize space with their lean, modular workstations. Our lineside storage solutions improve picking operations within assembly. When customization is high in an assembly operation, having the ability to store additional SKUs in the assembly area means pickers don’t have to travel to find the right part, speeding fulfillment rates. Efficiencies and productivity are increased as well.
