In 2017, Dematic will continue to emphasize innovation for our customers. Expect
to see more Dematic solutions designed for market sectors. From e-commerce
retailers/wholesalers to durable goods and consumables manufacturers, we
design and deliver solution sets that accommodate the specific requirements of
each market sector. What’s more, Dematic continues to be the perfect partner no
matter the size of your project. Our solutions are scalable and flexible. So whether
you have an application for a large, fully automated system or a smaller, semi-automated solution, Dematic is structured to respond effectively to your needs.
We also continue to focus on developing new and more powerful solutions. For
example, we have enhanced the Dematic iQ Warehouse Execution Software
platform to include new optimization and planning functionality to support the
demands of order fulfillment in the rapidly changing world of omni-channel
distribution and global commerce. Our new AMCAP, Automated Mixed CAse
Palletizing system, builds mixed case pallets based on your business rules:
assemble by retail store aisle/planogram, family group, or case size/weight.
Furthermore, we have developed new piece and case pick systems to maximize
productivity and accuracy in the distribution and warehousing environment,
including a robotic picking solution.
Finally, I am delighted to share with you that the KION Group completed its
acquisition of Dematic on November 1, 2016. The KION Group is a global
company that designs, manufacturers and implements material handling solutions;
the core product technology consists of a comprehensive range of fork trucks.
We are now able to deliver even more flexible and tailored supply chain solutions
– from manually operated forklifts to fully automated material handling solutions.
Together, our comprehensive supply chain solutions offering allows us to serve
The Dematic brand will remain the name for automated intralogistics solutions
throughout the world. Egemin and Retrotech which were also acquired by the
KION Group in 2015, will be integrated into the Dematic operating unit, further
expanding and enhancing the manufacture, design, delivery and service for
automated material handling systems around the globe.
As always, we are dedicated to the process improvement approach and look
forward to the opportunity to optimize your supply chain in 2017.
