A NOTE FROM OUR CEO 2017 has been another strong year in the material handling industry, and a great year for Advance. We were so excited to debut ROVER, The next generation automated pallet storage solution, at ProMat with great success!
As we approach the holidays and the end of the year, we at Advance want to graciously thank our customers, vendors and other associates for your continued trust in us, and if you haven’t yet worked with Advance, we welcome the opportunity for you to get to know us. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to even more success together in 2018!
As always, if Advance can help you with your next warehouse storage project, please let us know.
