Hanover, MN (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
PHS West, a provider of custom solutions for supply, equipment transport and storage, will be celebrating its 15th year anniversary this coming August. PHS West provides material handling solutions for hospitals, manufacturing companies, restaurants, hotels, and office complexes.
The company, which was founded by its current President Dan Cummings, originally modified outreach medical vans for the purpose of transporting equipment from regional hospitals to the smaller remote hospitals. These vans were specifically built and modified for transporting, loading and unloading endoscopy, cardiac, ultrasound and mammography equipment.
PHS West soon received requests to develop material handling systems for transporting this delicate and heavy equipment from the medical vans to the facilities. PHS West developed a custom drive system to accomplish this very task; in fact this drive system is the core technology of the Ergo-Express® line of motorized carts. This application led to the development of a modular cart line that could be customized to meet the procedural protocol of all the different hospital departments including but not limited to Dialysis, Environmental Services, Pharmacy, Sterile Processing, Central Supply, Linen Distribution, and Patient Transport.
While early on, PHS West was building and developing material handling solutions for hospitals, their core competency is their ability to innovatively customize equipment to meet the specific needs of its customers. With this ability, PHS West grew the Ergo-Express® tug system to include electric tugs for transporting multiple carts that eliminated the need to motorize individual cart systems.
As PHS West continued to find different applications for its technology, they developed its Featherweight line of products which is primarily for Endoscopy applications.
They have continued to grow every year as they have expanded into light industrial and commercial applications, linen carts, food service carts, part handling systems and applications for the food service industry.
"We have always been very proactive in developing custom applications for our customers", said Dan Cummings, President of PHS West. "We make sure that we fully understand the requirements and design a complete system that meets every need and eliminates the potential ergonomic issues. After the sale, we stay in touch to make sure the customer is satisfied. We have a 24/7 hotline for service. We also have the longest warranty in the industry."
PHS West's has always put emphasis on research and development. Its engineering and design teams are continuously working on new applications and making improvements. As a result PHS West continues to introduce new and improved products to the market place.
The quality and durability of its products are outstanding; many of its products built 15 years ago are still in service. Their slogan is "We deliver products that exceed customer expectations"
Dan Cummings, who is himself a veteran, is very proud that every PHS West product is made in the USA.
