Manufacturing Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors

Vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs) are a safe and efficient way to transport large, heavy loads between two or more levels.

VRCs are essential tools for manufacturers because they quickly and easily move heavy items from floor to floor. No matter the work environment, even sub-zero temperatures or wet conditions, a VRC from PFlow helps you to get the job done.

PFlow Industries is the pioneer and leading manufacturer of vertical reciprocating conveyors, and we can help you improve your manufacturing operations with a VRC.

Benefits of PFlow Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors

Our VRCs make handling and moving loads of multiple pallets, oversized materials, and heavy machinery a simple process.  Here are some of the many benefits of a VRC for manufacturing operations:

✔ Safely and efficiently move materials to improve operations
✔ Maximize floor space or create vertical storage
✔ Engineered for your specific lifting needs
✔ Advanced safety features built into all lifts prevent costly accidents
✔ Less costly to install, operate, and maintain than elevators
✔ Made in the USA with performance and reliability you can trust

Our VRCs conform to ASME B20.1 Safety Standards for Conveyors and come with guaranteed code approval in every state.

PFlow VRCs are designed for each customer’s specific lifting application. As the VRC industry founder, PFlow has unparalleled experience in the VRC industry and the technical know-how to solve your vertical lifting challenges.

Manufacturing Customer Testimonials

Our customers rave about their VRC’s reliability, problem-free operation, and many years of outstanding performance. When you need parts or service, you can count on a quick response from us.


“We conducted considerable research on different systems for the assembly of our tillage equipment. We consulted with a number of system manufacturers, but none could provide a solution to meet our needs, because the sheer size and weight of our tillage equipment exceeded their systems’ capabilities. Not only was PFlow able to design a custom down lift and uplift solution that fit our needs, but the company also engineered the entire moving-floor assembly system, based on our initial design concept, then manufactured and installed it.”

– David Konopacki, Lead Engineer, Bourgault


“It should have taken almost two weeks to install this lift, but we had four guys working twelve-hour days, and got it done on the Friday of the week it arrived,” said Mannes. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the thorough design work upfront.”

– Kevin Mannes, Florida Lifts (VRC Delaer)


“The timing sequence of everything is excellent. By the time the lift comes back up the next cart is ready to come out of the wash and into the lift. And if the lift isn’t unloaded for a few minutes at the bottom, the cart wash also stops, eliminating any potential back-ups.”

– Brad Bennet, Chief Engineer, Madison United
