Material Handling Systems, a leading provider of advanced parcel sortation systems, engineering and equipment, has acquired Officina Costruzioni Meccaniche (OCM), a European company that provides sortation system technologies.

Founded in 1976 and headquartered in Parma, Italy, OCM delivers value-added, mission-critical equipment and services to leading international courier and warehouse and distribution logistics companies by providing specialised sortation system technologies and expert systems integration services.

"Over the last 40 years, OCM has continuously adapted to the ever-changing demands of the logistics industry by investing in research and development and operations in order to provide its customers with the most accurate, efficient, and technologically-advanced solutions," says Tony Mouser, chief executive officer of MHS. "We are very excited to partner with Antonio Amadasi and the talented team at OCM, who share in our ongoing commitment to the highest levels of excellence and customer satisfaction."

Amadasi, CEO of OCM, says his company has focused on reliability, proficiency and advancement of its solutions, "which has enabled us to grow from a small-scale materials handling and packaging solutions provider for food companies in Northern Italy to a leading international provider of sortation system technologies for the courier and warehouse and distribution market".

Financial terms for the transaction were not disclosed and it’s not yet clear what impact the purchase will have on OCM staffing, facilities and operations.

Material Handling Systems was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. It is a leading global provider of turnkey systems integration and engineering, advanced automation equipment and software and aftermarket services.
