This is just the latest action the company has taken to build on the momentum it is seeing in the Americas region for automation solutions that deliver real results for customers. It began with announcing Sean Wallingford as the company's new president and CEO of Swisslog Americas, which has led to a more energized, customer-focused leadership team that is identifying growth opportunities.

"Atlanta has become a leading global center for the supply chain, home to distribution centers, offices and headquarters of some of the largest companies in the supply chain industry. Dunwoody enjoys a prime location at the center of Atlanta's central perimeter business district and it offers great access to the airport. As we continue to expand our customer base and portfolio, this new headquarters will better position us to capture additional growth opportunities, bring further innovation to the region and enable us to recruit the best supply chain, software and engineering talent we need to maintain and enhance the level of support we provide our customers," said Wallingford.

Swisslog's best-in-class robotics solutions and software include its Vectura pallet stacker cranes, PowerStore high-density shuttle system, CycloneCarrier shuttle system, ACPaQ automated mixed case palletizer, AutoStore and SynQ management software. Swisslog automation experts work closely with customers to determine which solution best fits their facility constraints, operational needs and business objectives. Swisslog was one of the first integrators to work with AutoStore and has since become the largest and most experienced integrator of complex AutoStore solutions with more than 400 AutoStore projects in over 26 countries.

The company also has a robust, 24/7 customer support network available to its North American customers, including service technicians strategically located across the region, to help ensure the automation solutions help them meet their business objectives. This includes over 50 field resources and over 100 full-time help desk resources. It also includes Swisslog's IT Managed Services, which puts in place experts to proactively manage the IT systems and software required to keep the equipment running at peak performance.

Swisslog has been at the forefront of technological innovation for the American logistics industry since the company acquired Munck Automation Technologies in 1998.
