Featured Client: United Mailing Services

More than twenty years ago, United Mailing Services, Inc. (UMS) got its start in the owner’s basement. That was in 1989 when mail was sorted by hand.

SJF’s New Sweep Sorter

SJF engineer Matt Johnson & systems integrator Frank Sterner team up with SJF’s fabrication pros to create, fabricate and program a first-of-its-kind sweep sorter.

This system will allow the company to vastly increase the number of orders they can process as well accommodate future growth and product demand.
