COCKEYSVILLE, MD -- A&A Global Industries reports that it always is on the lookout for ways to improve its popular Advance Model sticker machine. Since the machine itself, an industry workhorse, needs no improvement, the company concluded that the answer to this persistent challenge is to manufacture it on the East Coast, to save operators money on freight.
So A&A has geared up, and is now shipping all its Advanced Model sticker machines from the Maryland warehouse in addition to its Los Angeles facility. "Now operators making equipment purchases can save both time and money," A&A explained.
The new machines bring their high quality with them from the West Coast as they move east, according to the manufacturer. All parts, including fronts, Plexiglas, columns, mechanisms, hoods, stands and accessories, are available in Maryland, too. The system retains its sturdy construction and interchangeability elements, A&A said.
Some of the features of the Advanced Model are heavy-duty steel construction that fits on all racks and stands; textured UV powder-coat finish (in red, black and white) to prevent fingerprints, scratches and fading; and a novel front-loading design, optimized for ease of service and enhanced security.
The flat-merchandise machines are available in two-, three- and four-column models that can be stacked to create space-saving four-, six- and eight-column arrays.
Vice-president Steven Kovens explained that "Adding Baltimore as a shipping-point for the Advance Model sticker machine gives operators the opportunity to purchase it and save big on their overall freight cost." With shipping costs on the increase, having the option to ship from Maryland provides another reason to buy A&A's flagship flat vender at a lower overall cost, he added.
