JMP Solutions, Canada, acquired Alfacon Solutions, a Canada-based custom material handling solution provider, to form JMP’s material handling division.

“We are very happy the Alfacon team has decided to join us at JMP,” says Scott Shawyer, president and CEO of JMP. “Their capabilities are world class and allow us to provide our customers with very high quality, made-in-North-America advanced material handling solutions. Their customers will now be able to draw on the full-service offering of JMP. Additionally, they are a great complement to our robotic, AGV, control systems and MES divisions, giving us even more application bench strength and the ability to vertically integrate our offerings. Therefore, our projects have better quality; we deploy faster while reducing costs and risks for our customers.”

JMP will be augmenting the team from Alfacon with their project execution framework, project management resources and control system design and implementation expertise.

“I could not be more thrilled to have our team become part of JMP Solutions,” says John Murdoch former chief executive officer of Alfacon and now managing director of JMP’s material handling division. “We can now offer our customers improved execution capabilities, long-term stability, broader turnkey solutions, more control system flexibility, better system-wide implementation, coupled with world-class project management capabilities to reduce project risk and improve returns for our customers.”
