Kardex Remstar develops, manufactures, and maintains dynamic storage and retrieval systems which work in line with the goods-to-person principle. The space-saving storage solutions are ideal for small parts and light goods which need to be accessed quickly. Intertex, based in Eislingen (Baden-Württemberg), starts where Kardex leaves off, handling heavy goods with extreme dimensions weighing anything up to 5,000 kg in the case of the TowerMat storage lift.
Synergy effects for a broad range of solutions
Since 2008 Kardex Remstar has primarily supplied Intertex applications in Germany for storing long goods, sheet metal, tools, pallets, and stillages. The business model is being expanded from 2015 to include international markets, with the main focus on Central Europe, south-west and north-east Europe, and the USA. The pooled expertise of both intralogistics suppliers will create synergy effects. With the heavy-duty solutions from Intertex, Kardex Remstar can provide a broad product portfolio which is unique on the market. The customer gets every solution from one single source, while Intertex benefits from its partner’s international sales structure. The plan is to supply customers involved in mechanical engineering and the automotive and electronics industries with specific solutions in the form of predefined applications for storing large sheet metal panels, heavy tools, long pipes, tires, and cable reels. By doing so, Kardex Remstar wishes to unlock additional growth potential.
