The Automated Material Handling Systems Association (AMHSA), which will celebrate its 30th anniversary later this year, has welcomed no less than five new members since the start of 2016.
The new members are global integrated logistics systems manufacturer and provider, SSI Schaefer; mechanical and electronic drive technology manufacturer, NORD Drivesystems; the Danish material handling group, Qubiqa, which includes the brands Univeyor, QLS, Jokan and Seelen; WRH Global UK, which provides optimum material/process flow systems, combining unique ‘rolling friction’ technology with process flow know-how; and the racking and storage systems specialist, Stockrail International, which represents Optimus Sorters within the UK.
AMHSA’s Secretary, Dave Berridge, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome these five companies into AMHSA, bringing our membership up to 57. The total number of members and their diverse product and service portfolio serve to underline the fact that AMHSA represents the whole of the automated handling sector in the UK.”
A number of members will be exhibiting within the AMHSA zone at the IntraLogisteX show – which takes place on 16 & 17 March at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry – and at IMHX 2016, taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from 13-16 September. “Both events will provide AMHSA with a great platform from which to present the benefits of automation to an industry facing ever-increasing demands for speed and efficiency,” added Dave Berridge.
