Local Florida Manufacturer, G&T Conveyor Company, Wins Another Baggage Handling Contract at Orlando International Airport

Tavares, FL, February 25, 2011 --(PR.com)-- G&T Conveyor Company, the only American owned and operated turnkey baggage handling systems manufacturer in the United States, announces that it has been awarded the design/build contract to replace an existing baggage sort system with a new automated high speed sort system. A mile and a half or approximately 8,600 linear feet of conveyor will be designed, engineered, manufactured and installed by G&T, located in Lake County, Florida.

The project also includes replacing the ticket counter conveyors and integrating new controls and software, monitoring and graphics for the baggage handling systems at the Orlando International Airport.

Additionally, G&T was recently awarded the design/build contract for the new Orlando International Airport remote in-line baggage screening facility with 3,000 linear feet of conveyor, as well as a baggage handling system project at the Los Angeles International Airport containing 6,900 linear feet of conveyor.

As a proud supporter of the Manufacturers Association of Central Florida, G&T is doing its part to sustain manufacturing in Central Florida, a key factor for economic recovery.

G&T was awarded the Orlando project on best overall value based on its technical proposal, schedule, presentation and price to the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. The project will dramatically increase bag capacity and efficiency for passengers traveling to and from Orlando. These two large Florida projects continue G&T’s 23 year history with the Orlando International Airport.

“Our recent project wins in Orlando and Los Angeles provide a much needed boost for Central Florida manufacturing, while creating jobs and stimulating the local economy," said G&T Vice President and General Manager, John Cottrell. "We're pleased to continue to provide Orlando International Airport and airports across the United States with cost-effective, reliable and efficient baggage handling systems.”

The project is scheduled to be completed by late 2012.
