Z-UP With LD Systems

When you first designed your warehouse or distribution center, you probably did a pretty good job of maximizing your "x" and "y" space. Now, to get to the ultimate level of efficiency and space utilization, you need to Z-UP your facility by optimizing your vertical or "z" space.

Customer Testimonials

I met Bob 25 years ago and have found him to be a wealth of knowledge and a guiding light in a difficult industry where as leaders we commit capital and anticipate not only financial return but operational efficiency on a regular basis and I can say his prudent guidance and supportive demeanor makes him after all this time my first call when it's important!

Dear Business Leader,

I am delighted to recommend to you Mr. Robert Sutphen who is the principal of LD Systems (LDS), an integration company which specializes in optimizing productivity, safety, and space utilization through operation automation in the distribution and manufacturing industry. LDS designed and installed the automation of picking, delivery, sorting, and assembly process of our custom sterile kit manufacturing operation at a newly built 100,000 square feet facility. Bob and his team were reliable, responsible, and results driven throughout the entire project. Consequently, I am considering LDS for another automation project at a medical/surgical product warehousing and distribution facility.

I strongly recommend LD Systems for driving operational excellence and generating additional profits and know that you will not be disappointed.
