Seegrid Europe Highlights Top Trends Facing European Material Handling Companies at CeMAT 2014

Apr 2 2014, 6:10am CDT | by

Pittsburgh, PA, April 02, 2014 --(PR.com )-- Peter Bak, the new European Representative for Seegrid, discussed the issues facing European material handling companies in 2014. Bak will be introducing new Seegrid products for the European market at Seegrid products at CeMAT May 19-23, 2014.

Bak explained in-sourcing of production and distribution will require efficient and flexible automation. After waves of outsourcing, many European material handling companies are now pulling operations back. This trend requires these companies to develop processes and to implement technology to build efficiency and to ensure the necessary agility in a dynamic market place.

Michael Hasco, Seegrid’s Chief Growth Officer noted, "For Europe, businesses have cited labor costs as a top factor driving the decision about where to locate production, in fact, 77% of relocating companies identified labor costs as the motive to move production. For a typical manufacturing company, materials handling accounts for 25% of employees; therefore, reducing labor costs by taking the driver off of a standard truck and using an automation solution is a productive and cost-effective approach to driving down labor costs."

CeMAT 2014 will boast a new look with five clearly defined Technology Zones, together with new user focus topics and special events, will give visitors a concentrated overview and an opportunity to showcase products and services under prioritized headings. Offering an extensive range of services to help exhibitors plan display and generate new business leads on the basis of presentation in Hannover, CeMAT will be building on its role as a key driver of the intralogistics industry in 2014.

Seegrid flexible AGVs utilize vision-guided technology for navigation, with no changes to the infrastructure. The innovative technology allows vehicles to be trained and deployed in a warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing facility quickly and efficiently, eliminating non-value-added repetitive tasks. The vision system provides operators complete route flexibility, as the AGV routing can be re-programmed in a matter of minutes supporting the up-to-date needs of every facility.

Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Seegrid (www.seegrid.com), the prognosis for continued growth for Seegrid is exceptional, and whether developing robotic vision-guided solutions for manufacturing, warehousing or distribution centers, Seegrid is part of the reform for the materials handling industry for Europe.
