BRISTOL – City manufacturer Conveyco Technologies, awarded a contract to automate the new fulfillment center for Boxed.com last year, partnered with the online company to help those who needed it most this past holiday season.
“Conveyco's team is honored to be entrusted by Boxed to automate their new fulfillment center in Union, New Jersey. We wanted to do something that will honor both of our amazing teams (and) make an impact in our local community here in Connecticut,” said Conveyco President Raymond Cocozza. “We value the partnership we have formed with Boxed and hope to continue to provide much needed necessities to families in need not only now, but throughout the year. I can think of no better opportunity to support the Southington Community Services organization and the work they do to assist the less fortunate.”
Conveyco, on Commerce Drive, made a $5,000 donation to help people in immediate need over the holidays and delivered a donation of food and paper goods from Boxed.com.
Conveyco officials also made a commitment to donate additional goods throughout the year.
“We could not be happier, through our collaboration with Ray and the entire team at Conveyco, to help those in need this holiday season, and beyond,” said Rick Zumpano, vice president of distribution at Boxed.
Founded in 2013, Boxed has taken what it considers the best elements of the wholesale shopping experience and folded it into one mobile app that allows consumers direct-to-their-door access to all of their favorite warehouse club products without membership fees.
Conveyco is a material-handling systems integrator with a team of engineering talent that “works closely with its supply chain clients to design original, reliable, street-smart solutions that help them overcome their toughest challenges in the movement, storage, control and protection of materials and goods throughout their manufacturing and distribution operations,” according to its website.
“Conveyco is more than a brand; it is our mission to live true to the principles our brand is built upon,” said Cocozza. “We are grateful for the opportunity to give back, to serve our community and to serve our valued clients.”
