Stow’s new tech campus location, opening in early April of 2023, will be the new base of operations for both stow US, Inc. and the stow Group’s North American automation business unit, stow Robotics US. With ground-breaking technology and warehouse automation solutions from the robotics group, the innovative campus will be a technology and experience centre along with offices for solution sales, engineering and design, project management, aftermarket sales, and service & support. With the new facility, stow Group brings together all qualitative, industrial racking systems with its warehouse automation solutions such as the stow Atlas® 1D and 2D Automated Pallet Shuttle, stow Mobile®, stow e.scala® 3D Robotic Bin Storage Order Fulfilment Solution, and the iFollow AMR for picking and in-house transport in warehouses and distribution centres. Now with this unique combination of products, stow Group provides an all-round solution with innovative technology sets that are:
EFFICIENT: reaching any SKU, on any level, within a highly utilized warehouse cubic space
INTEGRATED: with the ability to be seamlessly linked together (stow Atlas® 2D, e.scala®, iFollow) to manage a complete warehouse
QUICKLY DEPLOYED: leveraging global resources and strategies to deliver solutions faster than the industry average
SCALABLE: As business operations expand, we can easily add storage locations, shuttles, and AMRs to accommodate this dynamic need
COST EFFECTIVE: providing a near ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for customers and integrators
The brand new North American technology and experience centre in Romeoville will give the stow Group a unique opportunity to showcase our newest automation solutions to our customers. This is the next step in the fast build-up of our activities on the North American market. We are thrilled to see the first big stow Atlas® 2D installations being installed on the market, and are very confident about our future on the North American market.
Jos De Vuyst, CEO of stow Group, said, “stow Group is quickly emerging as a leading warehouse racking and automation provider and is growing at an astonishing rate, both in Europe and the US.
“Our employees continue to be our greatest assets. We’re excited to give them the tools and resources they need to be successful by investing in state-of-the-art facilities like our new Romeoville campus,” added Nathan Richter, Managing Director of stow Group USA. “In addition, the new technology centre will allow our customers to get a first-hand experience with the automation and how it will fit their product/application. We understand that uptime is critical to a customer’s success; to that end, we have planned to inventory spare parts, AMRs, and robot shuttles to increase our service and support offerings domestically as well as improve response times and recoverability. Service and maintenance training for our customers will also be offered to ease the transition into automation.”
