Dubai-based logistics sector company focused on robotics in 2021 projects in the GCC and plans on expanding product lines this year
Logistics and warehousing solutions provider Acme Intralog has reported a 35% growth over the previous year on growing regional demand for local expertise in automated flexible and modular warehousing solutions.
The Dubai-based company said that In 2022, it plans to move part of its retail operations to Dubai Investment Park, expand its existing production facility in JAFZA, introduce more product lines for carton and tote solutions and implement a new SAP system to improve working processes and efficiency.
Navin Narayan, CEO, Acme Intralog, said: “In 2021, we completed significant projects, including a new sortation system for fruits, vegetables and dry goods for the largest supermarket operator in the region, and order fulfillment solutions for the biggest global e-commerce provider for their new facility in Saudi Arabia. We increasingly focused on robotics, specifically cobot solutions, through new partnerships with companies like Hanwha and OnRobot, as well as manufacturing customised mechanical grippers in-house. The disruption in supply chain due to the pandemic has encouraged more companies in the region to rely on local warehousing solution providers and, going forward, I believe this trend will continue.”
Further achievements in 2021 include providing automation solutions for the largest regional fashion retailer for their distribution centre in Saudi Arabia and implementing a high speed robotic palletisation system for one of the biggest dairy product manufacturers in Saudi Arabia.
Acme said it has also increased investment in the company’s in-house R&D and manufacturing departments. This has led to the expansion of its product range, like High Density Pallet Storage System, Radio Shuttle and Pallet Quality Check Stations.
In 2021, Acme also recorded a positive response from the industry at its booths in major trade shows - Seamless Middle East, Materials Handling, Gulfood Manufacturing, India Warehousing Show and the SCLG summit. The company renewed its ISO certifications, including ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001: 2018, and ISO 14001:2015, as part of its ongoing commitment to maintaining quality standards.
