"Boston Industrial came to us highly recommended in support of our Warehouse Strategy initiative. The BI team assisted in the project development as well as demonstrating a strong technical knowledge necessary in a cGMP warehouse environment. Their project management skills and insight into material flow and material storage systems have been fundamental in providing innovative solutions that have successfully resolved many of our constraints."
