AHS, a Hy-Tek Material Handling Company, has partnered with Tompkins Robotics in August of 2022. This partnership will help Advanced Handling Systems (AHS) and the entire Hy-Tek organization to expand their automated material handling capabilities as a global leader focused on the robotic automation of sortation solutions.
With Hy-Tek’s comprehensive suite of services, the addition of the modular and scalable tSort Sortation solution will support a streamlined process, improve employee productivity, and maximize the return on investment for the supply chain industry.
“We are excited to start our partnership with Tompkins Robotics, a proven scalable and flexible robotic sortation solution,” shared Zac Boehm, the Vice President of Innovation and Technology at AHS. “By formalizing our partnership, it allows Hy-Tek to add to its existing solutions by not only enhancing our G2P technologies, but allowing us to solve inbound, outbound, and product sortation with a scalable robotic solution.”
Changing economic conditions, a tight labor market, and consumer spending habits require today’s supply chain to be adaptable, scalable, and demonstrate a faster ROI than systems of the past. This new product offering will help AHS deploy a robotic sortation solution faster and more seamlessly than ever before.
“This partnership with Tompkins Robotics offers a simple, low-cost approach to sortation that can be quickly integrated into our customers’ distribution and order fulfillment processes to drive efficiency and increase throughput,” explained Collette Henn, the Sr. Manager of R&D and Software Deployment at AHS.
Tompkins Robotics systems can be deployed in every node of the supply chain. The modular solution deploys effectively in small operations, from the backroom of a grocery, supercenter, or mall anchor store all the way to large fulfillment centers processing millions of units a day. Their systems maximize performance, making their clients more agile, adaptable, profitable, and successful in today’s dynamic marketplace.
“AHS is a leader in innovative solutions. This partnership gives AHS and the entire Hy-Tek organization the unique ability to leverage their wide range of automated and robotic material handling and fulfillment technologies for a truly integrated solution that delivers an industry-leading value proposition,” concluded Thompson Brockmann, the Vice President of Operations at Tompkins Robotics.
