We did not invent assembly conveyors; we just made them affordable.

If you have ever considered automating your assembly area, but found it too expensive, think again.

Quicksort, a designer and manufacturer of automated assembly conveyors, brings you an efficient, space saving, automated assembly option that won’t break the bank. Our system, with its proprietary software, makes short order out of assembly. Barcode technology coupled with a versatile assembly conveyor will reduce your labor and increase your accuracy. Today more than ever, your profits are driven by labor. Decreasing labor costs, increasing accuracy, reducing the assembly area and consistently capturing upcharges -- four great reasons to think again about automating your assembly.

Why assemble any other way when you can QuickSort?
