<< Prev 1 of 2 Next >>

Egemin Automation Inc. has announced Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) is the primary component supplier for Egemin's Hybrid Automated Guide Vehicle (AGV). Egemin highlighted MCFA's contributions to the AGV during the ProMat® 2011 Trade Show in Chicago.

"When Egemin began its search for a component supplier, MCFA's reputation and commitment for providing quality lift trucks stood above the rest," said Jerry Dekker, President and CEO of Egemin. "Our customers expect the best from Egemin and the automated guided vehicle delivers a unique experience to material handlers."

Morphing manual and automatic operations onto a standard off-the-shelf forklift, the Egemin Hybrid Automated Guide Vehicle provides manufacturing and distribution centers the ultimate in material handling flexibility. Egemin announced the Hybrid AGV in late 2010 and officially launched the AGV at ProMat. Expo attendees visiting the Egemin booth were able to experience first-hand how easily an operator can interrupt automatic AGV operations, drive the vehicle manually and then place the forklift back into fully automatic laser guidance mode.

"Egemin is an industry leader in the Automated Guided Vehicle marketplace and being able to contribute to state-of-the-art practices in material handling is an honor," said Kent Eudy, vice president of dealer sales, MCFA. "At MCFA, we always strive to create and support efficient and effective industry innovations."
