Snyder of Berlin, Berlin, Pa., has been supplying snacks to North American customers for more than 50 years. The company manufactures potato chips, popcorn, cheese curls, and corn puffs and distributes pretzels, corn chips, and tortilla chips. As demand for its snacks increased, Snyder knew that it would have to upgrade its cheese curl and corn puff production line -- the manual dumping of 2 million pounds of cornmeal each year would have to be automated.
