As mobile robots make millions of trips across facility floors, the surfaces need to be durable and reliable. Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products LLC today announced that it has promoted Scott McGill to vice president of sales.
The Cincinnati, Ohio-based company said the move recognizes McGill's talent and value to the organization. It also said the appointment reflects Cornerstone's growth in the material handling and supply chain industries.
For more than 20 years, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products has led research and development in the field of engineered wood floor panels. In 1994, Greg Doppler, founder and president of Cornerstone, invented the ResinDek panel. The company claimed that it has become the premier mezzanine flooring panel product sold worldwide today.
The ResinDek industrial engineered flooring panels have the proven structural integrity to support live and dead pallet jack limits from 2,000 to 8,000 lb. (907.1 to 3,628.7 kg), said Cornerstone. The company added that ResinDek is designed to meet the rigorous demands of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in the supply chain and materials handling markets.
McGill leads Cornerstone engineering, sales
Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products said McGill has been instrumental in creating and executing growth opportunities within its sales and engineering teams. He has been with the company for more than 16 years.
McGill started in engineering and quickly rose to engineering manager, followed by director of engineering, and then director of sales, said Cornerstone.

“Since he became director of sales, our business has grown dramatically. In his new position, Scott will lead our sales efforts and new business development in the United States and other parts of the world,” stated Greg Doppler, president of Cornerstone. “As VP of sales, a significant part of his time will be devoted to strategy deployment initiatives that we fully expect to bear significant fruit over the next several years.”
“Scott has the technical expertise and results driven leadership skills required to continue to build and accelerate our growth,” Doppler added. “His track record of success and his ability to find creative solutions will be invaluable in maintaining Cornerstone’s position as the preferred flooring solution provider for mezzanines, pick modules and robotic—AGV and AMR—platforms.”
McGill earned his bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in 2002. Shortly thereafter, he began working in the material handling industry.
