Paceco Holds Third International Conference

Paceco, Inc., a subsidiary of Fruehauf Corporation, recently held its Third International Conference at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, Calif. The conference was prepared for Paceco licensees from around the globe, and included both business and social events. The first international meetings were held in Tokyo in 1968, and the second conference was held in Oakland, Calif., in 1972.

The San Francisco conference consisted of papers presented by the licensee participants and the Paceco personnel on the newest engineering and the most recent developments in container-handling equipment. Progress made with additional automation components for the Paceco MACH (Modular Automated Container Handling) cranes was also discussed.

Licensees were taken on tours of the Bay area container terminals and those in the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.

Another tour in the Bay area provided for the visitors a demonstration of Paceco's completely automated crane model. Separate tours were provided for the wives, one of which was a trip through the California Napa Valley wine country.
