Swisslog’s Award Winning Innovation

Automation specialists, Swisslog, have carried off the prestigious Technical Innovation prize at the 2014 UK Warehousing Association Awards, for their AutoStore solution.

The awards committee praised the Swisslog installation for its ‘bold and innovative response to the changing market place’ where space is increasingly at a premium and traditional ways of thinking have produced only minor improvements.

Going against the accepted wisdom, AutoStore turned the issue ‘inside out’ – positioning semi-autonomous robots on top of a storage cube and ensuring storage density is paramount. The subsequent ultra-efficient use of space, flexibility and reliability of the system makes it the most productive automated installation on the market today.

James Sharples, managing director of Swisslog UK, gave praise to the AutoStore team and believes the award is further recognition of Swisslog’s position as an innovative player in the market.

Said James: “We’re rightly proud to have won this UKWA award against stiff competition. It is a fantastic boost for the team who have excelled themselves. We are already well known for our quality and reliability, so we strive not only to provide innovative solutions to the market, but also to ensure that these are tried, tested and competitive for our customers.”
