Austrian warehouse automation specialist partners with John Lewis

KNAPP has provided automated material handling and software systems for John Lewis since the retailer opened a new, 650,000 sq ft distribution centre in Milton Keynes back in 2009.

Headquartered in Hart bei Graz, Austria, KNAPP AG is a leading global supplier of warehouse automation solutions, with particular expertise in the e-commerce, retail, fashion, food and pharmaceutical sectors.

Now KNAPP is providing the handling solution for a twin warehouse, opposite the existing one, that John Lewis is opening to accommodate staggering growth in its online business, as well as the continued success of its stores. In addition to providing the two distribution centres with state-of-the-art, automated logistics systems – including shuttle-based automated tote stores, intelligent conveyor systems, light-directed order picking stations and comprehensive software solutions – KNAPP is also contracted to provide John Lewis with a resident support team – a service also supplied to other KNAPP clients including Boots, Clarks, British Gas and The Co-operative Pharmacy.
