Hytrol Conveyor Co. (Booth 2818) announced a strategic alliance Monday with Beumer Group to provide sortation solutions in North & South America.  This alliance brings together two best-in-breed technologies in conveying and high-speed unit sortation.

The alliance is appealing, according to Gregg Goodner, Hytrol’s president, because Beumer offers unit-level sortation systems with its Beumer and Crisplant brands, while Hytrol offers conveying and other types of sortation, but had lacked unit-level sortation. Through the strategic alliance, Beumer also gains access to Hytrol’s integration partner network.

“When you have the opportunity to create an alliance between companies like Hytrol and Beumer, you can offer customers the widest range of sortation technology, supported at the highest level, resulting in unmatched value,” Goodner told Modern yesterday.

Thomas Dalstein, president and CEO of Beumer Group, agreed that the beauty of the alliance is that there is no product overlap. “I only see only opportunity with this alliance,” he said. “Both for the companies involved and for customers.”

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
