Stemilt partners with Swisslog to automate packing and distribution center

Stemilt Growers LLC., a grower and distributor of apples, pears, cherries and summer fruits, is partnering with Swisslog, to automate its intralogistics processes, with a PowerStore Pallet Shuttle at the heart of the system. 

"Swisslog's PowerStore solution is a perfect fit for Stemilt because it aligns with our culture and values by maximizing the efficient use of our space and the efficient use of energy," said West Mathison, President of Stemilt Growers.

In addition to the PowerStore System, the solution for Stemilt will include SupplyCarrier, ProMove Conveyor and warehouse management software and controls. The pallet shuttle storage and retrieval system will meet Stemilt's requirements for high throughput, while delivering high density storage and low energy consumption. Additionally, the specialty software will optimize functionality and performance, integrating with the company's existing ERP system. 

"Swisslog is proud that an innovative company in food distribution like Stemilt has selected us for this critical greenfield project. We look forward to partnering with Stemilt to implement a solution that is uniquely tailored to their operational requirements with proven, innovative technologies like PowerStore," said Michael Felbinger, Vice President PowerStore Systems.
