Within the Krones Group, the planning and implementation of intralogistical solutions had hitherto been handled both in System Logistics S.p.A. in Fiorano (Italy), and in Syskron GmbH in Germany (Wackersdorf). Effective 1 July 2019, the Intralogistics Division of Syskron GmbH has been incorporated into System Logistics GmbH, headquartered in Wackersdorf, as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Krones Group.
With this streamlining of its market presence, Krones is uniting its entire intralogistics portfolio under the family brand of “System Logistics” and offering clients worldwide holistic solutions for intralogistical applications. This synergising of corporate capabilities will additionally ensure even closer networking for intralogistical projects.
The newly founded company employs around 100 people, and possesses in-house engineering, design, IT, automation and project management capabilities, plus its own after-sales service operation.
System Logistics GmbH will still be headquartered in Wackersdorf. The German/Austrian/Swiss market, as the single biggest market for automated warehousing systems in Europe, plus clients from the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, will be handled from there in future.
