During its 35-plus years of operation, Ashland Conveyor Products has done the majority of its business within the industrial sector. But every now and then, it gets to branch out into something a little more unique and fun.
That was the case late last year when the company took on a custom job for the Museum of Ice Cream, a popular tourist attraction in Miami. The museum needed a conveyor to transport mini chocolate milkshakes to visitors in the "Bunn's Shake" room, a glittery re-creation of a 1950s diner. In keeping with the popup museum's tropical vibe, Ashland Conveyor supplied a power belt unit painted a light pink (Google "RAL 3015" to get a taste of this sweet color).
The Bunn's Shake room is just one of eight rooms featured in the museum, which might be best described as a dessert-themed funhouse. Others include an ice cream-themed dance studio; a safari room equipped with, yes, a banana swing; a sand castle room; a sculpture studio; and a sprinkle pool. If this doesn't sound like any museum you've ever visited and you'd like to know more, search Instagram for the hashtag #museumoficecream to see thousands of snapshots from recent visitors.
