In the current issue of Industry Today, Dan Harvey reports Automated guided vehicle systems, commonly called AGVS, once seemed like a fantasy described in an H.G. Wells novel. Today it’s becoming commonplace, thanks to Egemin Automation Inc. For almost 40 years, the Michigan-based company pioneered development and deployment. Efficient and cost-effective, the technology bolsters a company’s bottom line.
To best understand the impact that automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) have had on material handling, you need to look at Egemin Automation Inc. and its parent company. Part of Egemin NV, a Belgium-based international organization with outposts on several continents, Egemin Automation is the leading provider of AGVS.
First, a bit of background: In its previous incarnation and as part of the global Egemi NV operation, the Holland, Michigan- based Egemin Automation has manufactured AGVs and warehouse management systems for nearly forty years (it was established in 1976).
Within the history of these two organizations resides the evolution of automated material handling vehicles. Indeed, Egemin Automation’s narrative could provide a fascinating PBS documentary (a Ken Burns-style project, perhaps) and David Noble, Egemin Automation’s director of marketing and communications, would be the most appropriate narrator.
