B&H Photo

B&H Uses Quiet Conveyor on the Retail Store Floor

B&H Photo is a leading provider of new and used imaging products including cameras, video equipment, computers and more.

B&H needed to expand their current system to service a new 2nd floor retail space. Bastian's mission was to expand and update the current system of conveyors and vertical lifts to service the new second floor and the increased volume. With flexibility and creative design, we were able to deliver a system that exceeded B&H's expectations, all the while continuing with normal store operation.
