TGW Logistics Group Expands Operations with Seattle and Atlanta Hubs

05/08/2018
Austria-based TGW Logistics Group expands its footprint in the U.S., enabling its American business unit "TGW Systems, Inc." to better serve customers in the Pacific Northwest and Southeast with new operation centers in Washington and Georgia.

The company is a global leading systems provider of highly dynamic, automated and turnkey logistics solutions. Since 1969 the company has been implementing different logistics solutions, from small material handling applications to complex logistics centers.

According to company officials, strategically located in Seattle and Atlanta, these new locations join the company’s existing operations in Grand Rapids and Spring Lake, Michigan, and a 170,000 square foot manufacturing expansion, also in Spring Lake, Michigan.

“Our expanded footprint in the U.S. will allow us to even better serve our customers nationwide,” says Mario Herndl, CEO of TGW Systems. “Here in the U.S., our order increase over the previous year vastly exceeded our expectations, and we have increased our workforce by more than 35%. These two additional locations enable our team to be even closer to customers on the west and east coasts.”

The rapid growth of TGW’s American subsidiary is no coincidence, he explained, noting that the company’s innovative handling solutions are designed to meet any 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.

“As a self-contained solutions provider and system integrator, we have focused on bringing innovative technologies tailored to the American market. Everything our customers require for their material handling needs is provided by TGW, including all components,” Herndl added. “Adding these two locations is just another step in our lengthy list of planned investments in our U.S. operations throughout this year.

“We are excited to establish these new locations for our expanded teams,” adds Alex Ruch, Director of Human Resources for TGW Systems. “Both cities not only give us a footprint closer to current and prospective customers, but also represent two major metropolitan areas with strong engineering and logistics communities. Further, these two regions are home to top-tier universities that are continuously graduating world-class talent familiar with cutting-edge technologies.”
