Cimcorp introduces new automated solution for distribution centers

Robotic order fulfillment company Cimcorp is unveiling its latest retail solution for retrofitting distribution centers with automation.

Headquartered in Finland with a North American office in Grimsby, Ontario, Cimcorp provides a range of automated storage and order picking systems designed to optimize fresh and perishable food distribution.

At ProMat 2023, to be held March 20-23 in Chicago, Cimcorp and co-exhibitor Murata Machinery Ltd. will introduce a fast, flexible automation solution. The modular, gantry-based design enables rapid installation in any existing facility. Grocery retailers can install automation modules based on their present needs, then scale as business grows, according to the company.

In addition, high-density, floor-based storage makes the solution ideal for meeting food safety and sanitation requirements. Overhead gantry robots can access any product at any time and can clear the floor in minutes for easy cleaning.

“I’m excited to introduce this year’s ProMat attendees to our innovative solutions for fresh and perishable food distribution,” Adam Gurga, national sales manager, Cimcorp Automation Ltd., said in a news release. “All aspects of our systems are tailor-made to support the unique needs of grocery retailers — from enabling rapid handling for shorter lead times, to using floor-based storage for easy cleaning, to offering scalable systems for phased growth.

“And now, our solution for future-proofing facilities is making it easier than ever to get started with automation, in a way that is quick, cost-effective, scalable, and sustainable.”
