Jungheinrich, the materials handling firm, has acquired warehouse management systems software company ISA-Innovative.
The German company has held a significant stake in ISA since 2009 and, in recent years, has co-operated with the company on several large systems projects across Europe.
“This is an excellent strategic move for our company,” said director of Jungheinrich UK Systems & Projects Division, Steve Richmond.
“Software solutions such as warehouse management systems and materials flow systems are a crucial component of any materials handling solution and critical to any project’s success – regardless of whether the solution is manual, semi-automated or fully-automated.
“Software is the heartbeat of modern intralogistics solutions and we now own that core competence which means we can supply an entire suite of software and provide the 24/7 support to ensure that it operates at optimum efficiency.”
