Warehouse projects at Mazak, Samsonite & Pfizer | Flood lock Heumen in use | New staff in the UK & Netherlands

With several new projects for existing and new customers, 2013 is promising to be a very exciting year for Egemin in the field of warehouse automation. Belgian customers Mazak and Samsonite are building new warehouses and have enlisted Egemin to deliver the warehouse automation. Warehouse retrofit projects for numerous other customers are scheduled in the next coming months as well. In Germany, Pfizer ordered a new AGV system to make its production logistics in the Freiburg plant more efficient.

The river Maas and the Maas-Waal canal in the Netherlands are connected as from now via a new flood lock. Egemin took care of the automation of the energy neutral lock and worked as a subcontractor for Besix Netherlands. In Belgium Egemin's Infra Automation division has won new infrastructure orders for the canal Brussels-Charleroi, including the development of a remote control system and the automation of the water level control. Egemin will also build three new weirs in the West of Flanders.

Egemin continues its international expansion with the employment of two new sales forces for the UK and The Netherlands. Peter Holdcroft joins Egemin UK and will focus on the sales of automated guided vehicle systems, in-floor chain conveyors and automated warehouse systems for the UK and Irish markets. Bernardo Stokman joins Egemin's Process Automation division as commercial director.
