Dematic to add AutoStore automation systems to its supply chain optimisation portfolio
AutoStore, the inventor and provider of the grid-based, scalable warehouse automation system, has signed a “strategic agreement” with global automated technology firm Dematic, a global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services.
As a result of the contract, the extreme high-density storage and goods-to-person picking system designed and manufactured by AutoStore will become part of Dematic’s supply chain optimisation solutions portfolio.
Dematic will offer, configure, engineer, install and support AutoStore as a sub-system within its overall supply chain installations, or as a standalone storage and fulfilment solution.
In a statement, AutoStore said the partnership will enhance its market presence, as well as positioning it to keep pace with the growing demand for its warehouse automation systems.
“The AutoStore system is a logical fit for the Dematic portfolio, providing a greater selection for customers tasked with optimising their storage and order fulfilment capabilities,” it added.
“AutoStore is a modular storage and piece picking system that can be easily installed in low or irregularly shaped buildings and around pillars, to optimise storage density
Karl Johan Lier, CEO and President at AutoStore, said: “AutoStore continues to grow at a substantial rate, and as a result, we are delighted to work in partnership with Dematic.
“They will enhance our market presence and give us the excellent global support we need to keep pace with expansion. We believe that AutoStore fits very well into their portfolio of products, and we are looking forward to a fruitful relationship with Dematic.”
