By clarifying the elevator codes PFlow created the vertical conveyor and the phenomenon we call ‘The Horizontal Nature of Vertical Conveying’.  PFlow can and will lift anything.

PFlow has built lifts moving loads of all shapes, sizes, and weights. PFlow was not the first manufacturer in the material lift industry but quickly became the leader with the help of vertical reciprocating conveyor, Pflowour many skilled dealers and resellers that place the equipment into so many wide ranging applications.
