Heat and Control Celebrates Milestones
Heat and Control marks two major milestones in 2020 – the 70th anniversary of the company and the 25th anniversary of FastBack, the industry pioneer and leading horizontal motion conveyor.
Heat and Control has been modernizing equipment solutions for seven decades and takes pride in the machinery they manufacture and the customers they serve. “We have incredible people in our organization, customers believe in our abilities, and there is a respectful collaboration with our global partners,” says Tony Caridis, Heat and Control president.
According to the company, one of the keys to their success has been Caridis’ ability to recognize industry-changing technology. Vibratory conveyors dominated the industry until the FastBack horizontal motion conveyor entered the market. “I’m always searching for ways to improve our solutions for our customers, and the FastBack technology fits well into our Heat and Control family of brands. It has grown into a product line that is leading the way in conveying and product handling arena,” explains Caridis.
Blake Svejkovsky, Heat and Control general manager, who also invented the system, commented: “I think there are really two main contributors to FastBack’s success. The first is Heat And Control’s philosophy that ‘better-and-better beats better-and-best,’ which means that as individuals and as a company, we’re never to consider our work as being done or a solution as the best that we could possibly produce. The second contributor to FastBack’s success is simply Heat and Control’s culture of listening to the customer.”
For decades, FastBack technology has been providing smarter solutions that improve distribution efficiency throughout the entire plant. With more than thirty patents and more than 20,000 units worldwide, FastBack innovation and attention to detail continues to advance the industry.
