EZ- Way will manufacture automation to more efficiently select merchandise for companies like Amazon. Daugherty said his firm hopes to have its product ready to market by early fall. “It is industrial automation for broken case picking,” Daugherty said. “A lot of people log on to order products; employees pick those items who literally push shopping carts around a giant warehouse to get each individual item; this completely automates that task and allows use of employees in a better manner.” EZ-Way Systems co-developer Brad Harris said the system was developed in the industry ‘incubator’ at Lanier Tech’s Manufacturing Development Center at Featherbone Communiversity in Gainesville.
The Soin Innovation Award is designed to identify and financially assist a local company demonstrating innovative spirit.
