Wynright Corporation, a leading independent, U.S.-based provider of intelligent material handling systems, has announced the appointment of Joe Hutter to President, Engineering and Integration, for its Elk Grove Division.
Hutter, a 24-year veteran at Wynright, will be responsible for leading sales and integration strategy, engineering and project management, and the delivery of integrated automated materials handling solutions for the Elk Grove Division.
