New Erg-O-Cart from Benko Products, Inc. Increases Safety and Productivity for the Beverage Industry

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Benko Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial batch ovens, fall protection equipment and drum ovens, announces that its one-of-a-kind Erg-O-Cart ergonomic beverage cart eliminates the back injuries that result from lifting kegs and cases.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 1 million workers suffer back injuries each year, and back injuries account for one out of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. One-fourth of all worker compensation claims involve back injuries, costing industry billions of dollars on top of employee suffering. It has been estimated that a back injury can cost a company over $100,000 per incident.

The Erg-O-Cart eliminates the need to bend while lifting heavy boxes, kegs, cases or other heavy items. Its unique lifting mechanism raises and lowers heavy objects automatically via a retractable lift plate, allowing the user to comfortably load and unload at waist level. During movement the loads are locked in place, guaranteeing security.

“The Erg-O-Cart is the most innovative and safest cart to ever be used in the beverage industry,” said John Benko, inventor of the Erg-O-Cart and founder of Benko Products. “This is one of the smartest investments a beverage company can make in terms of safety and profitability. We’re even offering a 30-day trial period—that’s how confident we are you will love the cart.”

The Erg-O-Cart features lightweight (weighs less than 40 pounds) aluminum and magnesium alloy construction, enabling fluid movement, ensuring a long product life span and requiring virtually no maintenance. The unit includes a convenient side handle for easy transportation in and out of trucks. Stair-glides and height extensions are available, and each Erg-O-Cart can be customized to a user’s specific needs.
