Materials Handling Middle East 2015 kicks offby Sarah Jacotine on Sep 14, 2015
SSI Schäfer is among the headline exhibitors looking to further their already considerable footprint in the market. The world’s second largest materials handling system supplier is showcasing its range of storage and logistics solutions, including standard industrial racking to fully automated turnkey warehouse solutions.
Matthias Hoewer, general manager for SSI Schäfer in the Middle East and Africa said: “SSI Schäfer has been present in this region for more than 20 years and can look back to hundreds of successful installations and projects throughout the entire region.
“We manufacture more than 95% of products required for intralogistic systems and we consider ourselves as very objective when it comes to the selection of the right solution for our clients. This year we’re showcasing our versatile R3000 multi-tier shelving solution made specifically for regional clients’ requirements.
“Our industry focus is covering a very wide range; food and fashion retail, pharmaceutical, automotive and F&B production are core markets next to third party logistics providers.”
The strong international presence is complemented by more than 30 UAE-based exhibitors, headlined by regular supporters Kanoo Group, Al Futtaim Motors, General Navigation and Commerce Company (GENAVCO), SPAN Trading, Al Futtaim Auto & Machinery Company (FAMCO), and Acme Industrial Hardware.
Navin Narayan, director of Acme Industrial Hardware, a supplier of warehousing and industrial automation solutions, said: “Acme has been participating at Materials Handling Middle East for many years and we’ve seen the show grow with each edition.
“Over the last few years, there has been a surge in e-commerce, and this is substantially changing the way the supply chain has been managed. There’s a growing need for warehouse automation as well as automated order processing solutions, and we’re now seeing big investments made for efficient, accurate high speed solutions.”
A new feature this year is theForklift Operator of the Year, a unique competition where more than 70 contestants from throughout the UAE will go head to head in an effort to be crowned the region’s most skilled, safest, and efficient forklift operator. Returning is the popular Demo Area where exhibitors showcase capabilities of forklift brands, such as Toyota, Raymond, Jungheinrich, and Hyster.
The two-day Warehousing and Materials Handling Conference on 15-16 September puts a spotlight on the emerging trends and their impact on the regional materials handling industry.
