How it all began...! Ideas for warehouse logistics.
Ulrich Upmeyer laid the foundations for our company in 1971. Since then, we have enjoyed continuous long-term growth. Our family owned and operated business now employs more than 300 people around the world.
With our automated storage system technology, we have played a decisive role in shaping warehouse logistics for decades. A targeted market focus and our innovative mindset and approach still remain our driving values.
