Riverside Automation

Boulter’s comprehensive custom crating and packaging shop services a variety of industries with equipment of all different shapes and sizes. At the request of a local machining company, Boulter was asked to prepare two large pieces of automation equipment for overseas transport. In preparation for this job, we participated in many pre-project meetings to discuss scheduling, material requirements, and necessary safety measures. After the planning phase, we utilized customized elements including shrinkable marine wrap, stretch wrap, and ISPM 15 certified wooden packaging materials to ensure the full environmental protection of these items.
