Apr. 9, 2018 – Unex Manufacturing, a provider of order picking solutions, has purchased SpeedCell Storage Systems, expanding Unex’s product and solution offerings to further optimize space and efficiency while bringing high-density storage solutions to the pick, put or assembly line, it says.

Unex unveiled the acquisition on the eve of MODEX 2018, a material handling and supply chain show running April 9-12 in Atlanta, Ga.

“We are very excited with this addition of SpeedCell and how it complements our pick, put and place storage solutions for manufacturing and distribution right up to the last mile,” said Mark Neuwirth, VP Business Development, Unex Manufacturing. “We now have a better solution for those items whose throughput simply require a better pick and storage medium then settling for traditional static shelving.

“Bringing high-density solutions to Unex’s foremost Flow Cell Span-Track systems reduces labour cost per pick, eliminates the need to hire additional workers and increases productivity. It’s a win-win situation for both companies and the industry.”
