Sales Success Story
Arden, North Carolina-based Arcadia Dairy Farms began as a small dairy business in 1939 with 30 cows and 70 acres. Through the years, Arcadia has grown substantially and even branched beyond the dairy business into the juice and non-carbonated beverage industry. As the business has grown, its packaging and shipping requirements have grown along with it. In 2004, Arcadia began working with Scott Hovis and his team at Advanced Equipment Company to help automate processes in the now 200,000 sq. ft. facility. The aim of this initial project was to transition away from the use of forklifts to transport cartons more efficiently.
