Hänel Storage Systems, manufacturer of dynamic carousels and viastore systems, integrator of automatic Intralogistics systems, have agreed to closely cooperate internationally.

"Where ever possible, we will integrate the tried and true and reliable Hänel carousels in our intralogistics concepts,: said Frank Apel, Sales Director of viastore systems. In addition, viastor systems, as a provider of automatic storage systems, warehouse management software and SAP logistical solutions, profits from the world-wide Hänel network. Hänel will also benefit from the numerous contacts of viastore systems world-wide. "It helps us both to further expand our international position and enter new markets," explained Apel.
Hänel Storage Systems will also take advantage of the expertise of viastore systems, in order to further perfect the integration of the Hänel carousels in existing merchandise management systems and warehouse management systems. "viastore offers an outstanding software with the WMS viad@t, which covers all the requirements of the warehouse. In the past we have already developed a certified SAP interface for our microprocessor controls together," describes Harald Ellwanger, Sales Manager at Hänel. "This is only one example of our successful collaboration."
Since the 1950's, the name Hänel has already stood for innovative solutions for automated supply of materials and files.

The Hänel Group employs approximately 500 employees, who generate annual sales of nearly 100 million Euro.
For 40 years, the viastore Group has been among the leading international system suppliers of turnkey automatic intralogistic systems, warehouse management systems, material flow and process control as well as storage and retrieval machines. 350 employees generated sales of approximately 75 million Euro in 2010. As a consultant, service provider and supplier of SAP-based intralogistic solutions, the independent domain, viastore SAP Logistics Solutions, specializes in technologies and add-ons for warehouse logistics.
