SMART SYSTEMS™ manufactures patented retail racking systems to improve retailer profits and to provide enhanced consumer shopping experience. We are headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA and incorporated in 1996.
Our line of fixturing systems began with the SMART SYSTEM® Original in the meat category. The unique, patented racking system immediately improved product organization on the shelves, such that store inventory could be easily and quickly determined, re-ordering greatly simplified, and re-stocking labor was cut by more than half.
The SMART technology was quickly adapted to the yogurt category where we met the challenges of high turn and limited shelf life. The SMART SYSTEM® original was re-designed into the SMART SLEEVE™. The new design better accommodated resets and delivered improved profits and labor savings to customers.
The newest product introduced is the SMART ADJUSTABLE™. Both length and width can be adjusted, making it the most versatile system yet.
Since its inception, SMART SYSTEMS™ has grown its customer base from two regional grocery chains to numerous national chains and a presence in thousands of retail stores.
On May 25, 2018, Smart Systems Enterprises lnc acquired the operations and holdings of SMART Systems, lnc. Our manufacturing facilities and main office remain at their current location, in R J Casey lndustrial Park at 1800 Preble Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15233.
Recent staff changes involved in this transition include myself, Keith Fitzpatrick, President and owner of Smart Systems Enterprises lnc along with Patrick Baker, our new Sales Director. I have over 30 years of experience with manufacturing, construction, engineering and service firms. With my background as General Manager, Controller, Vice President and President of various organizations, I bring a broad base of experiences to SMART Systems. My plans for the future of the company include not only maintaining the highest quality proprietary products and services in the shelf management industry, but also expansion of our innovative product line to new applications across a variety of consumer retail market segments by increasing our product availability with direct, interactive online purchasing capabilities.
"The look and enhanced presentation alone would be reason enough for me to buy the SMART SYSTEM™, but it also reduces labor, enhances inventory control, reduces out of code product, increases air flow, eliminates case blockers, is customer friendly and gives us a grand opening look in minutes."
"The SMART SYSTEM™ presents the case as a fully merchandised case, even if there are only a few packages in a row. It also saves labor costs (can block case in 5 minutes), expedites order writing, facilitates taking of inventory, and helps to control amount of on- hand inventory."
"... The SMART SYSTEM™ enhances presentation, aids in overall merchandising, increases sales, reduces labor costs, keeps inventory under control, and minimizes time spent rotating product. the improved presentation makes the installed areas easier to shop for the customer."
