Aconveyor system is an integral facet of manufacturing and industrialization. Catering precisely to this need is Keeline Conveyor Systems, an all-Americanmade conveyor company based out of Omro, Wisconsin. The company has been designing and building conveyor systems in various styles and configurations for over 75 years and enjoys a nationwide reputation for its sanitary conveyor solutions for a wide array of industries, including and not limited to food and beverage industries. “We build custom conveyors that are designed to meet our customer’s exact situation and needs. We add a great deal of value at being able to provide our customers with custom designed conveyors at close to the same cost as other companies sell off-the-shelf solutions that don’t fit the particular need,” says John Schuster, CEO and owner of the company.

Keenline’s biggest competitive edge is its expert engineering and assembler, and its ability to maintain quicker turnaround times than its competitors, even with the custom design of its conveyors. This gives Keenline’s customers the ability to get up and running with their new system faster, which means a high ROI when Keenline customers are purchasing new systems. Although Keenline delivers a wide array of conveyor systems, it is particularly famous for its fully welded stainless steel designs. Their ultra-sanitary and super-sanitary conveyor systems can meet the stringent FDA standards of the food, beverage, and packaging industries. As sanitary conveyor design is a huge concern for most food processing companies, Keenline comes with stainless steel designs that have specific special features that allow for very easy and quick clean down of the machines between shifts and avoid bacteria-harboring points, including true in-place cleaning capabilities and complete raw food handling standards if they are designing for food applications. Keenline’s specialized designs greatly reduce the risk of product contamination and keep American consumers safe.

While serving its clientele, Keenline Conveyor Systems has been successful by implementing a successful mix of timeproven design and cutting-edge technology. They make constant improvements to their conveyor systems, and they use feedback from everyone in the in the company, including all application engineers, production engineers, assemblers, and sales executives, as well as direct feedback from customers, to improve their design to serve their customers better.

Such a team effort allows them to design and tailor best-of-breed solutions that actually add value to their customers. Moreover, John Schuster says that the company follows three simple principles in all operations of the business: “neat, clean, and efficient.”

To bring more accuracy and perfection into the design process, the company communicates with its clients extensively during its design process. This helps them to alter the client’s existing process and revamp them best to fit a new requirement in the production line. They also design the system to fit the future process needs, especially when the production lines need to be updated or changed. To facilitate this, the team listens carefully to their client’s needs and then work toward building the entire process to design and create a system that works best for the client’s need.
Keenline Conveyor Systems understands that no two projects, and no two customers, are exactly the same.

For that reason, the company leverages a specialized process to work with each customer, meet the customer’s needs and objectives (including making recommendations on how to save money), and make sure that customers receive the highest returns on their investment as possible. Moving ahead, John Schuster and his team have developed a clear business roadmap for Keenline Conveyor Systems ahead. John purchased the company in September of 2020, and he is no stranger to business as he is a fourth-generation business owner in the Oshkosh area. In his leadership, he plans to continue to grow Keenline Conveyor Systems as a closelyheld business and continue to make it a great place to work by building on its great team environment.
