Kardex Remstar acquires a stake in SUMOBOX AB

In a world shifting to smarter material handling, Kardex Remstar continues to focus on maximizing performance for customers. To ensure this, Kardex Remstar announced a new strategic partnership with the Swedish company SUMOBOX AB, a specialist for modular plastic containers, helping customers gain greater flexibility and increased storage capacity.

With the addition of SUMOBOX, Kardex Remstar has introduced a new line of storage containers specially designed for the Shuttle Vertical Lift Module (VLM) product: VLM Box. A modular design concept provides flexibility in heights, widths and depths allowing the VLM Box to provide more options for storing goods and improving organization.

Customers who utilize these boxes have experienced greater stock accuracy, which decreases the risk of costly picking errors. VLM Box also offers stored items secure locations, thus minimizing the number of damaged goods. In addition, the adaptability of these boxes means that as client requirements change and develop, the storage containers can be easily adjusted.

For Kardex Remstar clients using Vertical Lift Module solutions, the new VLM Box provides increased storage capacity through greater organization of stored goods within the trays. The VLM Box will be distributed exclusively by Kardex Remstar.

Johan Wingård, CEO of SUMOBOX AB “Dynamic storage and retrieval solutions deliver more floor space, improved picking productivity and higher stock accuracy levels, which is the reason SUMOBOX was developed.  Our highly efficient and modular storage boxes are the perfect complement to these systems and we are excited to be working with a leader in this space.”
