Portec


When people put their baggage in the hands of airport workers, or give their packages to courier express companies, they trust these items will be handled with care. To ensure they are, airports and parcels carriers often turn to Portec, CEO Marco Oropeza says.

Based in Canon City, Colo., Portec manufactures power-belt curves, spiral lifts and chutes, merges, queues and other specialty power conveyors. These have uses in a variety of places, including baggage and parcels handling, and distribution, warehousing and industrial manufacturing systems.
