With orders for TGW Logistics Group's technological innovations, advanced goods-to-person solutions, and extended service portfolio having increased by 60 percent in the past 12 months, the company has opened two new offices in the U.S. Located in Seattle and Atlanta, these new locations join the company's existing operations in Grand Rapids and Spring Lake, Mich., and a recently purchased, 170,000-square foot manufacturing facility—also in Spring Lake.

"Our expanded footprint in the U.S. will allow us to even better serve our customers nationwide," said Mario Herndl, chief executive officer of TGW Systems, in a statement. The rapid growth of TGW's American subsidiary is no coincidence, Herndl continued in a prepared statement, noting that the company's handling solutions are designed to meet customer needs in the core markets of apparel, grocery, and general merchandise. To that end, both locations will support sales, project quoting, and specialized engineering activities, as well as house controls specialists, remote service teams, and technical personnel.

Alex Ruch, director of human resources for TGW Systems, said in a statement that company plans to hire another 100 employees over the next 12 months, increasing the size of its American team from 350 to 450.
