Swisslog, a global provider of integrated logistics solutions, and Power Automation Systems (PAS), the leading provider of cart-based, deep lane automated warehouse systems, today announced they have formalized a cooperation agreement for the North American market.

Swisslog in North America will include the PAS technology as part of their solution portfolio. The PAS proprietary system is based on PowerStor, a cart-based automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), used for deep storage of palletized loads. PowerStor (PAS/RS) provides automated storage for high throughput of large quantities of high-density warehouses and is very effective in existing space restricted or odd-shaped facilities.

“We see the ability to expand the use of pallet handling systems into new market segments, not historically served by automated solutions consistently,” said Markus Schmidt, senior vice president of Swisslog. “In addition, the PowerStor system will provide an additional extension to our automation solutions portfolio in cold storage applications, further enhancing our leading global position.”

Cory Hypes, executive vice president for PAS adds “We are very pleased to have established this relationship with Swisslog. Their long standing reputation for performance and service is well known in the industry and we anticipate it will open up new segments for our innovative technology.”
