European intralogistics specialist TGW Logistics has teamed up with the US-based warehouse automation company Opex to develop automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS).

In a joint statement, the two companies say the collaboration will allow them to further develop Opex’s Infinity AS/RS, which will also be implemented in TGW Logistics’ LivePick new order fulfillment system.

“Common values and a strong focus on corporate culture brought us to this strategic milestone,” says Christoph Wolkerstorfer, TGW Logistics chief technology officer. 

“With our experience as a systems integrator, we will bring fresh momentum to the optimisation and further development of Infinity as part of this collaboration.”

Family-run company Opex, founded in 1975, is headquartered in the US and employs more than 1,500 people on five continents. 

Austria-based TGW Logistics was founded in 1969 and has more than 4,400 employees. It serves customers in the US through its unit in Grand Rapids, Michigan, including Gap, Urban Outfitters and Victoria’s Secret.

Opex says its Infinity AS/RS system has up to 35% greater storage capacity within the same footprint than its competitors, as well as up to 65% higher efficiency in terms of the routes the robots take through the rack.

The system is designed for small and medium-sized fulfillment projects.

TGW Logistics and Opex say they hope their new partnership allows them both to reach new customer groups and markets in the US and Europe.
