Worldwide News Eisenmann

Worldwide News Eisenmann receives order from USA Inconso opens a location in Spain A similar electrified monorail system for frozen goods will be commissioned at the Preferred Freezer Services’ cold storage facility, the largest in North America, in summer 2015 The temperature-controlled logistics provider, Preferred Freezer Services, has awarded Eisenmann a seven-figure contract to construct an electrified monorail system for its largest and fully automated refrigerated warehouse in Richland, Washington, North America. In the summer of 2015, an electrified monorail system of around 750 meters will connect the receiving department with the warehouse, picking department, truck loading bay, and railroad spur. Thirty five trolleys will be operating around the clock, seven days a week, moving 6,000 pallets, each weighing approximately 1.5 tons. While traditional refrigerated warehouses rely on human-operated narrow-aisle trucks, “this will be our sixth fully-automated cold storage facility, and we are already planning further projects,” states John J. Galiher, CEO, Preferred Freezer Services. “As refrigerated warehouses become increasingly larger, the conveyor systems are becoming more complex. It is very important to us that the facility is flexible, fast, and totally reliable. We were therefore looking for a proven solution.” Preferred Freezer Services is investing over USD 100 million in the new development project, which is being overseen by prime contractor, Dematic. The logistics company is planning four further cold storage facilities this year, two of which will be fully-automated. Dematic expands range of solutions The Dematic Group, the supplier of integrated technologies for the automation of the intralogistics industry, has recently taken over FSU Investments Limited. FSU is the majority shareholder of SDI Group Limited, which is based in Royston, United Kingdom, and manufactures sorting technology for hanging and folded goods. With this investment, Dematic is expanding its range of order processing services for the clothing, retail, and e-commerce markets. With the opening of a new office in Madrid, Inconso AG from Bad Nauheim, Germany, is now also represented in Spain. Following the expansion in the meantime to ten locations within Germany and the founding of a subsidiary in Lyon, France, the Spanish office is the next step within the strategy of internationalization for the logistics software provider. The office in Madrid will be managed by Stephan Walser, whose repertoire includes 15 years of marketing experience in Spain. Vitronic and TNT have announced their global partnership Vitronic Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH from Wiesbaden, Germany and TNT Nederland BV, one of the world’s largest enterprises for express services, have formed a long-term global partnership. The cooperation includes equipping hubs, gateways and service centers with up-to-date image processing technologies for recording the data of goods being transported. The first phase of the project includes over 100 locations in Europe. More than 600 systems will be used to read the bar codes of consignments to determine their eligibility for shipping, in addition to reading the barcodes of large envelopes and small packages, while recording 3-D images and measuring and determining their volume and weight. The contract includes the delivery, installation, commissioning and after-sales service of the identification systems. “We have combined a very close partnership and the technical know-how of both partners”, said Maarten Ree Perfect (right in the photo), Transaction Executive at TNT. Gerhard Bär (left in the photo), COO of Vitronic, added: “Being a system house, we are able to adapt the functions of our systems to an individual TNT solution that can then be used globally as standard at TNT.” 6 f+h Intralogistics 1/2015

Nejat Dagdemir is new General Manager of Marangoni Kaucuk Ticaret Nacco Materials Handling acquires Nuvera Fuel Cells In December 2014, Nacco Materials Handling Group, Inc. (“NMHG”), Cleveland/USA, announced its acquisition of Nuvera Fuel Cells, Inc., Billerica/USA – a leading manufacturer of hydrogen and fuel cells. The deal reinforces the commitment of Hyster Company and Yale Materials Handling Corporation, both operating divisions of NMHG, to provide a broad range of alternative energy solutions to the forklift truck market. The plan is to quickly launch these sustainable technologies on the market and integrate them in many of their own forklift truck range. This acquisition not only ensures that Hyster and Yale can offer configurable fuel cell stack technology but can also provide commercial grade on-site hydrogen generation and refueling capabilities. Retrofitting and servicing will be provided through Nuvera authorized dealers. Marangoni Retreading Systems, a company that retreads industrial tires, has appointed Nejat Dagdemir (image) as the new General Manager of the Turkish sales subsidiary, Marangoni Kaucuk Ticaret, located in Izmir. Over the last twenty years, Marangoni’s Turkish sales subsidiary, has been successfully established and developed by Osman Bayik, who has now retired. Dagdemir is a mechanical engineer who started his career at Mercedes Benz, and then went on to work at Pirelli, where for many years he held various positions in sales until becoming Business Unit Truck Manager and, finally worked as the Country Representative in the Alliance Tyre Group before joining Marangoni. His extensive experience in the sale of tires and his in-depth knowledge of the market will certainly help Marangoni achieve the growth objectives it has set and to expand its presence on the competitive local market.
