Due to continued success and growth in the systems solutions area, Transnorm has decided to bring that business segment to the next level of professionalism. All business activities for systems solutions will be transferred to Conveyor Networks Ltd, a company where the existing competencies of Transnorm and the software/IT know-how of Lifetime Controls Ltd will, it says, "be bundled for even better customer benefit".
As materials handling system complexity has increased in recent years and reliance on high level IT even more so, Transnorm has long worked with strategic partners to deliver these IT solutions and support services. However, even this does not meet the increasing demands from the market place. Therefore, led by experienced people formerly with Transnorm and from its strategic IT/Control partners, Conveyor Networks Ltd now becomes its recommended provider of factory and logistics automation.
Conveyor Networks will be able to integrate the Transnorm solutions much better with a range of other products and services in the UK, and support with spare parts and service contracts of all kinds.
Transnorm Group management is fully supporting Conveyor Networks Ltd's development with all its activities and says it will ensure seamless cooperation on an exclusive basis for all systems solutions and "to ensure deliveries to the customer continues to be first class".
Products will be manufactured at Transnorm in Germany, where all product R&D is carried out. Along with the new TCC (Transnorm Competence Centre), this offers clients the chance to test solutions and train staff.
Transnorm System Ltd will reinforce its focus on its core business of supplying modules, supporting the key business areas of airports, baggage handling systems and associated contractors, along with key parcel distribution companies, several OEMs and other global key accounts. Transnorm will continue to develop and support the curve product and the range of other modular solutions including Merges, Smartsort, VertiSwitch and Vertical Lifts.
Transnorm System Ltd says it will work closely with its customers, suppliers and with Conveyor Networks to ensure that the current and future product, delivery and service remain market leading.
