Tony Barr, VP of marketing and business development for Beumer Corporation (Booth 3203), told Modern at a booth visit on Wednesday that customers of Beumer and Crisplant alike can expect a sea change in services from both companies.

Following Beumer’s acquisition of Crisplant in August 2009, Barr said the company will begin a full North American rollout of Crisplant technology and services beginning in July 2011.

“It will allow us to provide the broadest range of high speed sortation and services in the global market,” said Barr.

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.”

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
