AutoStore, a Norway-based provider of grid-based, scalable warehouse automation system, signed a strategic agreement with Dematic, a global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services based in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The contract enables AutoStore’s high-density storage and goods-to-person picking systems to become part of Dematic’s supply chain optimization solutions portfolio. Dematic will offer, configure, engineer, install and support AutoStore as a sub-system within its overall supply chain installations or as a stand-alone storage and fulfilment solution. The partnership will also enhance AutoStore's market presence, as well as position it to keep pace with the growing demand for warehouse automation systems.

“AutoStore continues to grow at a substantial rate, and as a result, we are delighted to work in partnership with Dematic,” says Karl Johan Lier, president and CEO of AutoStore. “They will enhance our market presence and give us the excellent global support we need to keep pace with expansion. We believe that AutoStore fits very well into their portfolio of products, and we are looking forward to a fruitful relationship with Dematic.”
