Material handling systems provider Hytrol displayed some of its equipment at a White House “Made in America” event on June 17 honoring American manufacturing as a representative of the state of Arkansas, the Jonesboro, AR-based firm announced.

Joining other American companies like Caterpillar and Campbell’s Soup on the White House lawn, Hytrol’s president David Peacock and chief engineer Boyce Bonham appeared for the company.

Hytrol Marketing Specialist Paige Carswell told Powder & Bulk Solids that the equipment on display at the White House was the firm’s ProSort 400 Elite, a family of high-speed sorters with high sort rates, rubber isolators for quiet operation, variable speed control, and simplified integration with the firm’s Plug-N-Go wiring.

“It was an honor to have been selected to represent the state of Arkansas in this event,” Peacock said in a statement. “We’re so proud at Hytrol to continue to invest in our community and our country by keeping jobs here, and we believe that’s an essential piece of what makes our company so successful.”

Operating for 70 years, the company currently employs more than 1200 workers and recently invested some $18 million in facilities and capacity upgrades.
