Westfalia Technologies to Highlight New Testing/Training Facility & Upgraded S/RM at Modex 2016

Logistics solutions leader will showcase its warehouse automation technology at booth #947 and host an educational seminar during supply chain trade show

York, Pa. – March 14, 2016 – Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of logistics solutions for manufacturers and distributors since 1992, will showcase its latest warehouse automation technology at booth #947 at Modex 2016. During the event, Westfalia will highlight its new testing/training facility and upgraded storage and retrieval machine (S/RM), as well as host an educational seminar, “What is it Going to Take to Put You in an AS/RS Today?” Modex is scheduled for April 4-7, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

At its York, Pennsylvania, headquarters, Westfalia recently completed the development of a multi-million dollar test facility. This facility allows the company to test improvements and new software user interfaces to better its solutions and to stay at the forefront of the technology. It will also serve as a training facility to provide customers with hands-on, improved training on using an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS).

In addition, Westfalia has upgraded its S/RM to provide clients with safer operations and lower maintenance costs. The new S/RM features an independent moveable safety cab, or service lift, which allows operators to access storage levels without using a ladder. Also, the S/RM has more built-in dual safety processors and service components that are more accessible for easier maintenance.

Dan Labell, president, Westfalia Technologies, said, “To demonstrate our commitment to excellence, Westfalia is always looking for ways to improve upon our existing solutions’ designs and functionalities. Our new testing/training facility will help assess these improvements – like the upgrades we’ve made to our S/RM – to give our clients the tools they need to drive their overall warehouse efficiency.”

Hosted by account executive, Aaron Corcoran, Westfalia’s Modex educational seminar, “What is it Going to Take to Put You in an AS/RS Today?” is slated for 3:45 – 4:35 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, April 6, in Theatre D. In this seminar, attendees will hear from two of Westfalia’s customers, Sargento and Breakthru Beverage, and will learn how an AS/RS is a cost effective, scalable solution based on a variety of business model scenarios.
