Cincinnati-based Intelligrated relocated its Dallas-based southwest regional operations to expanded facilities in Coppell, Texas.
“Intelligrated’s decision to expand its presence is a direct result of confidence in the Texas business climate and the need to develop a larger base to service local clients,” says Chuck Harris, vice president of Midwest/Southwest operations, distribution and fulfillment.
The new Intelligrated facility, located at 750 Canyon Drive, Ste. 210, Coppell, Texas, provides increased accommodation for new hires along with an option for a further increase in square footage when/if required.
In other Intelligrated news, it completed its acquisition of Knighted, an Ossining, N.Y.-based provider of supply chain software solutions. The acquisition is a strategic component of Intelligrated’s mission to deliver innovative solutions that increase fulfillment velocity for e-commerce, multichannel retail, 3PL, wholesale, consumer products and food and beverage industries.
Knighted provides web-enabled logistics software for today’s supply chain operations, including warehouse management software (WMS), warehouse control software (WCS) and labor management software (LMS).
“Today’s multi-channel retail and consumer demands require fulfillment operations to deliver orders faster and more efficiently than ever before,” says Greg Cronin, executive vice president of Intelligrated. “The acquisition of Knighted enhances Intelligrated’s ability to deliver modular solutions that are not only easy to implement and upgrade, but are also capable of making decisions at the speed of automation, increasing distribution and fulfillment capacity and lowering supply chain costs.”
Through real-time views into processes, equipment, inventory and labor information, Knighted’s suite of solutions, now available through Intelligrated, enable warehouse and distribution centers to streamline operations, improve productivity and maximize the value of labor, automation and supervisory control. Knighted will continue to operate independently under the Intelligrated umbrella.
Over the coming months, Intelligrated and Knighted will integrate select administrative operations and combine software development resources. The Knighted management team, including Daniel Napoli, Craig Wilensky and Ed Kennedy, will continue to play key executive leadership roles in Intelligrated’s software organization.
