Warehousing automation integrator Conveyor Networks has signed a deal with Geek+ to become an official UK and Ireland distributor for its robotics and AI logistics.
Last month Geek+ appointed AMH Material Handling as an official distributor for its robotic products in the UK, and this week launched the C200M, an extended-depth bin-to-person AMR.
Simon Houghton, senior sales and marketing manager at Geek+: “We believe technology and industry partnerships are key to transforming the global supply chain. Speed, product diversification, same-day delivery and volume are challenges facing a wide range of industries. In the current climate, there is no doubt that Coronavirus has impacted operations.
“However, robotics offers an opportunity to increase productivity, flexibility and agility, whilst importantly supporting health and safety measures. We believe working with a highly respected integration specialist like Conveyor Networks, we can help more business supply chains in the UK and Ireland accelerate their adoption of robotics and answer these challenges.”
Marcus Uprichard, head of business development at Conveyor Networks, said the partnership agreement with Geek+ “propelled its industry 4.0 service offering forward with next level intelligent robotic solutions”.
He said that he believed that the shift to automation and robotics would likely play an important part of the coronavirus recovery phase.
“The pandemic is temporary, but many of our customers from retailers to manufacturers are now taking a hard look at how automation can maintain and boost their operations in the long-term, with resilient systems such as those we see from Geek+. We’re very excited to deliver Geek+ solutions to the industry and ensure our customer’s material flow operations continue to thrive now and in the future.”
Geek+ (stand 430) will be at IntraLogisteX 2020, which will take place on 28 and 29 July at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. The show moved to July in the light of measures to curb the coronavirus pandemic.
