Hytrol is a world leader in the manufacture of conveyors, conveying systems, and conveyor accessories. Since our inception in 1947, Hytrol has demonstrated an unwavering dedication to understanding the material handling needs of businesses. For over 65 years, we have been creating innovative, customized conveyor solutions that help companies achieve their goals. From a single conveyor unit to a comprehensive conveying system, whatever your need, we have a solution.
A major part of our growth comes from our adherence to the belief that only our integration partners can offer the local presence, on-site expertise and instant service that today's businesses require. We help end users meet their efficiency goals by providing a creative and experienced team of engineers that are devoted to designing, testing and implementing ideas for new conveyor models and systems. Given the competitive nature of the marketplace, we offer highly efficient computer-controlled conveyor systems and fully-automated, high-speed sortation systems that can dramatically cut material handling costs. Furthermore, we provide on-going support through our conveyor stockyard, adjacent to the plant in Jonesboro that maintains extensive inventory of conveyors and conveyor accessories. This allows us to ship stock products within 24 hours or we pay the freight! The conveyor stockyard includes over 50 conveyor models in more than 2,400 sizes.
Our partnerships with local integrators along with innovative designs, competitive pricing, exceptional customer service and excellent product availability have led to phenomenal growth. In 1962, we relocated to Jonesboro, Arkansas with 26 employees in a 27,000 square foot facility. Today, we employ approximately 700 people in a manufacturing center covering more than 500,000 square feet. We now serve 63 integration partners in the United States as well as 22 international partners in 13 countries.
Our reputation for durability, reliability and quality combined with our innovative designs, competitive pricing, exceptional service and outstanding product availability have made us one of the largest manufacturers of conveyors and conveying hardware in the world.
Hytrol Conveyor Company has accumulated one of the most impressive histories of growth in the materials handling industry. A big part of that growth comes from adhering to the belief that only integration partners can offer the local presence, the on-site expertise, and the instant service today's industrial customers require. Hytrol founder Tom Loberg expressed his company's approach to doing business this way: "We're in the business of manufacturing conveyors; our distributors are in the business of selling them. By working closely with our distributors, we form an unique three-way partnership between our company, our distributors, and our customers. That's been Hytrol's philosophy since 1947, and it has never wavered."

Hytrol's world class manufacturing facility operates in a lean environment. By practicing lean manufacturing, six sigma and maintenance excellence we are able to service our customers efficiently with quality products at reasonable prices. The combination of these three practices makes our Hytrol Power Lean unique to other lean environments. Power Lean is a long-term business philosophy, strategy, and relentless attack on waste, whether it is on our production floor or within any of our business processes.
Lean Manufacturing - a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination.
Six Sigma - a practice that seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes.
Maintenance Excellence - a plant-wide approach to maximize the effectiveness, efficiency, longevity and availability of mechanical equipment.
Hytrol develops new products and enhances current technology through research and design collaboration with Integration Partners and customers. The Hytrol Technology Center transforms those customer expectations into innovative application-specific solutions. Along with the Product Test Center at Hytrol's main facility, the Technology Center provides opportunities to test and evaluate "real-world" customer scenarios every day.
