Over seven months have passed since becoming a part of Element Logic, which has been exhilarating and busy!
2022 brought a record volume of bookings, revenue, and backlog (since 1977!) Our goal for 2023 is to improve by 10% 2023, and strengthen EBITA by 50%
As we continue integrating with Element Logic, we will continue to overcome any challenges we face. The Element Logic approach is standardized and repeatable solutions.
I’m proud to announce that we have secured an AutoStore solution with Jerry Leigh, a long-standing customer in Orlando. Most of their products are shipped to Disney or other retailers selling Disney merchandise.
On March 2nd and 3rd, we will host SELF23 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. While SELF has been canceled the past two years due to COVID, we’re excited to resume with this wonderful event! Next year’s speakers will range from a variety of organizations, including: JCPenney, lululemon, Auburn University, and SLB Performance to name a few.
As part of our efforts to modernize and make our internal process more efficient, we closed our manufacturing shop in Pacoima, CA. We worked tirelessly to relocate and reposition all of our shop employees, some of whom had been with us for over 35 years! We are incredibly grateful for all the years of hard work they dedicated to the success of SDI.
Thank you all for making this a memorable year! As we wrap up with 2022, I’d like to wish you all a very happy holiday season and a 2023 filled with prosperity!

AutoStore is often referred to as a Goods to Person solution or an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) unit that’s as dense as they come! Inventory in the Distribution Center is stored in bins — which stack one on top of another creating columns—and ran by robots.These robots are small carts with wheels that glide across the top of the aluminum grid and have an elevator-type mechanism that digs out the necessary bins.
The robots take the bins needed to create the orders and bring them to a port. The person at the port is presented with one bin at a time and told which item(s) to take out to complete the order. Learn more here
