Our mission is to deliver unparalleled warehousing solutions by earning the trust of our customers, understanding their business needs and honoring the commitments we make.
Committed to warehouse automation for 50 years.
For 50 years Westfalia has been committed to innovating and implementing logistical solutions utilizing Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) and conventional material handling equipment. Our success has been shaped, to a large extent, by the satisfaction of our customers around the world.
Originally founded in 1971 in Borgholzhausen, Germany, Westfalia-WFT-Fördertechnik GmbH & Co. KG (Westfalia Germany) has played an important role in shaping warehouse logistics and automation around the world. In 1979, Westfalia Germany installed the first fully automated storage system in a brewery in Herford Germany, Herforder-Pils, which is still in operation today using all original equipment. In 1983, Westfalia's Satellite® storage system was developed and revolutionized pallet handling technology. Since then, the equipment design has been refined and evolved into the patented Satellite® family of systems. In 1992, Westfalia Technologies, Inc. was established as an independant company bringing the European-designed line of AS/RS equipment and technology to the North and South American markets. The two companies are now affiliated as "sister companies" and are both leading providers of logistics solutions for plants, warehouses and distribution centers.
Immediately after incorporation, Westfalia Technologies acquired Thompson Equipment Machine Company (Temco), of York, Pennsylvania. Temco was secured to provide Westfalia with a solid base of operations for the design, manufacturing and servicing of the AS/RS equipment. Today, Westfalia Technologies, Inc. is a key player in the automated materials handling and logistics industry. We have helped companies in the food, beverage, chemical and other major industries to optimize warehouse processes and maximize efficiencies and savings.
As designers and planners, the most important driving force for us is working alongside our customers as an active partner. Working closely with the customer forms a unity, which builds one of the pillars on which our basic company convictions are founded: unity means the customer gains a unique opportunity to significantly cut costs and raise customer service levels. Collectively, both companies employ approximately 300 staff around the globe that embody the customer service experience that is intentional, consistent, differentiated, and valuable for each and every customer. This is further represented through the extensive list of successful projects and customers we serve. Westfalia Technologies, Inc. continues to reflect the unparalleled ability to deliver customized pallet handling solutions throughout the world.
