The 2013 International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) was a significant success story for a number of our clients thanks to Prova’s media and event management. This year’s IMHX, which is held every three years, proved to be invaluable for both the Wanzl UK Group and Savoye.
Wanzl, the largest single supplier of retail equipment in the UK, presented an eye catching and innovative stand at this years IMHX that saw the firm attract hundreds of supply chain and logistics specialists looking for pioneering solutions for the industry. Head of logistics, industry and service for Wanzl, Doug Jeffery, said that the show had been Wanzl’s “most successful IMHX to date.”
Savoye, the logistics division of Groupe Legris Industries, unveiled a number of pioneering technologies at this year’s IMHX. The global warehouse automation specialist launched its E- Jivaro, latest Picking Tray System (PTS), and it’s all-electric Intelis® conveyor solution. All three solutions were met with success at the exhibition.
Following IMHX 2013, Savoye has secured a contract with Spicers, a leading wholesaler of office products in the UK & Ireland. Savoye has been tasked to design, supply, install and commission an automated order preparation solution at its Smethwick distribution centre in the West Midlands. With a total investment of £2.3 million in the project, it is clear that this year’s IMHX was well worth the trip.
