TVH goes solar
Waregem, Belgium

TVH has installed 3,260 strategically placed solar panels at its Waregem site, taking its solar panel total in Belgium to 26,605.
The installation is good for a peak power output of almost 1,200 kW. Approximately 80% of the yield will be used for TVH's consumption; the rest will be injected into the electricity grid. "The panels reduce our consumption from the mains grid by 15% and make us a lot more energy efficient", explains Luc Rasschaert, facility manager at TVH. "In Belgium, some 50% of our energy is now green."

Columbia/Okura celebrates 25 years
Vancouver, WA, Canada

Columbia/Okura has marked its 25th anniversary as a provider of end-of-line automated palletizing and materials handling solutions.
The company's first robotic system, installed in 1996, was only recently pulled out of service to be replaced with a current generation Columbia/Okura palletizer for higher throughput. The robot was still operational and was repurchased by Columbia/Okura as a historic icon.
"We've achieved this historic milestone with the support and strategic vision of our owners and through the hard work and dedication of our employees. Our culture of caring, flexibility and responsive customer service exists throughout the entire organisation," says company president Brian Hutton.
While the focus of the business remains on end-of-line automation, with 25 years of experience, the scope of offerings and integration services has grown to include large, complex, multi-line, multi-robot systems as well as high-speed, automated bagging lines, and collaborative palletizing and depalletizing solutions.
