Cimcorp has opened a new office in Norcross, Georgia, USA. The new office enables Cimcorp to provide greater support to North American clients and growing warehouse and distribution market.
Located in an emerging business and technology hub, Cimcorp opened its U.S. office during the second quarter of 2016.
The location will provide Cimcorp’s sales and service team with a local home base in the Southeast market, which has a large projected growth for intralogistics, warehouse automa-tion and manufacturing. Cimcorp is looking to expand its sales and service activities to its customers in its target markets, including tire manufac-turing, consumer packaged goods, food and beverage, and retail and e-commerce.
“Due to its central location within a rapidly growing intralogistics market, ease of airport access, proximity to our major customers and access to skilled labor, the Norcross area is an ideal location for Cimcorp,” said Rick Trigatti, North America president, Cimcorp. “The new office will allow us to better service our U.S. customer base while providing us with expanded access to this growing market where we will be surrounded by customers, competitors, partners and suppliers.”
As well as being a manufacturer and integrator of pioneering material handling systems for the tire industry, Cimcorp has developed unique robotic solutions for order fulfillment and storage that help manufacturers and distribution centers meet the challenge of managing multi-channel distribution within a complex and rapidly evolving multi-sales channel envi-ronment while optimizing material flow, increasing efficiencies and improving their bottom lines.
“We truly believe that our U.S. customers will value us being closer and being able to serve them better in sales and after sales issues,” said Rick Trigatti.
