Beumer Group offers Crisplant sortation systems again in North America
Crisplant brand loop sortation technologies, systems, and life-cycle support services are back in North America under the Beumer Group, one of the largest designers, manufacturers, providers, and marketers of automated high-speed loop sortation systems and services.
A member of Beumer Group, Crisplant is a leading provider of sortation solutions worldwide. Crisplant provides solutions and lifetime support for airports, postal facilities, parcel distribution and warehouse and distribution centres. Crisplant has led and delivered projects that include many of the world’s largest and most advanced material handling operations.
Beginning on July 4, 2011, customers in North America can once again refer to original Crisplant customer support, parts, with local inventory for fast fulfillment. Original life-cycle support, including Hotline service, preventive maintenance programs, controls and software optimization packages, and modernization road maps tailored to the unique requirements of your business are once again available as well.
At ProMat 2011, Tony Barr, VP of marketing and business development for Beumer Corp., told Modern that customers of Beumer and Crisplant alike can expect a sea change in services from both companies.
Among Beumer’s sortation offerings is a redesigned crossbelt that uses fewer drives per a given length of belt. The power draw of each driver is 75% less, and crossbelt systems can sort 4,000 to 45,000 units per hour, according to Barr.
“We’re taking a disciplined approach to product development and making sure sustainability is a key strategic filter when looking at new innovations,” he said. “2011 appears to be on track for significant growth, both for Beumer and the industry.”
In 1944, Crisplant was founded in Denmark by Svend Christensen. Over the years, the company developed many sortation solutions. In 2000, Crisplant was acquired by FKI, which later changed its name to FKI Logistex. In 2009, when FKI Logistex was purchased by Intelligrated, Crisplant gained independence and reverted from FKI Logistex to Crisplant company name. Later that year, Crisplant became part of the Beumer Group.
