The TGW Logistics Group is a leading provider for innovative storage and retrieval systems, headquartered in Marchtrenk, Upper Austria. Its American business unit TGW Systems, Inc. in the U.S. is committed to engineering, producing and implementing highly automated, flexible solutions supporting distribution and fulfillment for leading retailers in ecommerce, apparel, general merchandise, and grocery worldwide. Founded in 1969, the company and its today’s 3,300 employees across the globe not only look back on a story of success, but also have a promising future lying ahead.
In a rapidly changing business environment, the Austria-based warehouse automation manufacturer has proven itself repeatedly by enhancing world class solutions and further expanding its footprint in the U.S. After operating in the area of Norton Shores, Michigan, for 37 years, TGW Systems will now invest about $2.5 million in a 20,000-square-foot industrial building in the area to accommodate 260 engineers and support staff.
“With the acquisition of this facility, we will double the size of our U.S.A. manufacturing footprint and also have capacity for further expansion,” said Alex Ruch, director of HR, TGW Systems. Within the next five years, the company is scheduling an additional manufacturing expansion of 100,000 sq.ft.
