GR-X Manufacturing Container Handling Equipment

​​​Mid 2016 we decided to replace an old and obsolete bottle flaming unit.  From design to installation of the new unit all of GR-X employees were very knowledgeable and professional. The installation went flawlessly at the end of October 2016.  

Kyle was prepared and able to complete the installation and training in a timely and professional manner. This flamer meets and exceeds all of our companies safety standards and requirements. 

If your finding yourself in need of a new flaming unit, I would highly recommend GR-X as the company that can get it done. It was our pleasure to be able to do business with your company.

Everyone that I have talked to at GR-X has been very friendly and helpful.  When we received the flame treater, it was easy to install - all we had to do was add power, gas, and air.  

The flame treater is simple to operate and easily adjustable.  It is designed very well and is made with quality components.  It features all of the latest safety features and guarding and is surface treating our containers well.
