As Dematic celebrates reaching the milestone of 50 years of operations in Asia, there is a real optimism in the logistics automation and software company's Asia team about the future.

Established in Asia in 1972, Dematic pioneered the introduction of logistics automation to the region with early Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS). Milestones include Dematic rolling out the first automated system in Singapore in the 1970s, the first AS/RS in Malaysia in the 1980s, the first AS/RS in India in 2007, and the largest high-speed automated sorter in Asia, commissioned in Korea in 2005.

"This track record of innovation has accelerated in recent years to address rapidly changing customer demands for speed, quality, and operations at a scale difficult to imagine even 10 years ago," says Michael Bradshaw, senior director of systems and solutions design at Dematic, a 25-year veteran.

"With a legacy dating back to Germany in 1819, we're extremely thankful to the customers who work with us in Asia and our employees who have built our high-performance culture," says Michael Jerogin, chief executive officer, Dematic Asia Pacific. "Our strong commitment to customers is rewarded with the long-term partnerships and repeat business that has driven us to a market leadership position in APAC and a strong contributor to Dematic worldwide. We continue to invest with three in-region manufacturing facilities, the largest engineering centre of excellence in the region, and the largest in-country service teams across the region – all ensuring we deliver on our promises to our customers."

"Dematic has come a long way from our humble beginnings, working with our customers in Asia to grow our operations and to provide superior support to businesses, from small operations to large and complex projects incorporating advanced automation and software," says Steve Cheung, managing director, Dematic Asia.

Dematic has expanded employment opportunities and employee skills as part of its growth into new geographic markets and with advancements in technology.

"We take great pride in developing our people and teams into the best our industry has to offer, creating a work environment built on teamwork, collaboration, and unrelenting commitment to our customers. Our teams go above and beyond to deliver and support logistics automation for our customers in the face of many challenges over the years, including the pandemic and natural disasters. Successful project execution on-time, in-full brings us a great satisfaction, knowing that our hard work helps our customers to continue playing a vital role in supporting their local communities," adds Cheung.
