Dematic Group, a leading global supplier of integrated material handling solutions and services, has completed the acquisition of HK Systems, a US automated material handling and software solutions provider.

John K. Baysore, CEO, Dematic North America, will be responsible for leading and developing the newly combined company in the US and Canada.

With more than 20 years of executive experience, Baysore will lead Dematic in the design, delivery, and support of a more robust and diversified solution offering to the company’s customers.

The newly combined company will be called Dematic with its US headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The expanded manufacturing footprint will allow Dematic to domestically manufacture automated storage and retrieval machines and automated guided vehicles in addition to conveyor, sortation and order fulfillment technology.

“Throughout the transition, customers will remain our top priority”, Baysore said.

“The combined company will provide enhanced material flow solutions to improve our customers’ supply chain performance while increasing their service levels and profitability.

“Our goal is to deliver seamless end-to-end solutions for diversified vertical markets from manufacturing to distribution.

“In addition, the acquisition combines two powerful customer service infrastructures to deliver the industry’s most responsive and dependable integrated material handling systems support.”
