GRIMSBY, Ontario - Feb. 14, 2018 - Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, announces a successful 2017 with double-digit, year-over-year revenue growth in North America. In 2017, the company continued to grow both its Canadian operations in Grimsby, Ontario and its U.S. office in Norcross, Georgia, installed its MultiPick solution in a leading bread and roll manufacturer's facility, and subsequently enlarged its staff by approximately 15 percent, while expanding into new international markets.
After beginning operations in late 2016, Cimcorp USA continued to successfully expand Cimcorp's sales, service and project support activities for customers in local U.S. target markets, including dairy, consumer goods, food and beverage, bakery and tire. As a result, Cimcorp USA helped grow both of the company's business domains - distribution and tire - and realized a significant increase in business from repeat and new customers in 2017.
In mid-2017, Cimcorp announced Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. ® implemented its MultiPick solution in its Chambersburg, Pennsylvania facility. The family owned and operated bread and roll manufacturer is now able to pick goods faster, with few to no picking errors, complete traceability of products and without any of the inherent safety risks in personnel manually fulfilling orders.
Rick Trigatti, North America President, Cimcorp, said, "The order fulfillment process continues to become more complex and challenging for many companies, resulting in an increased demand for automated solutions. Cimcorp has built a team of highly intelligent and innovative thought leaders to develop solutions to meet our customers' needs. As we move into 2018, we look forward to continuing our steady growth and providing proven automated technologies for the distribution and tire markets."
Cimcorp plans to build upon its 2017 success by continuing to invest in highly skilled personnel that will support the sale and implementation of proven and reliable leading edge solutions and services for its customers.
