Schaefer Systems International have continued their expansion and are pleased to welcome Brad Welsman as the Executive General Manager of the Automated Systems Division, Asia Pacific Region.
Based in Sydney, Welsman will head up the automated systems division which will cover automated storage, conveying and picking technologies.
“SSI Schaefer is leading the industry in innovative materials handling solutions, particularly in the areas of high efficiency order picking and automated storage, and I am very excited about the opportunity of bringing these innovations to our Australian and Asia Pacific customers,” Welsman says.
SSI Schaefer is celebrating 25 years in the storage systems business in the Asia Pacific. The appointment of Welsman highlights the organisation's on-going investment and expansion in the automated systems division and re-affirms its long-term commitment to the Australian materials handling and storage market.
Welsman brings 15 years experience and expertise in managing the design and implementation of integrated materials handling systems and paperless picking technologies in Australia, Asia Pacific and most recently Europe.
“Both Australia and Asia have a growing potential to benefit from automated storage and high efficiency picking systems; such as the integrated Goods-to-Person systems SSI Schaefer recently installed for Coles at Eastern Creek and Somerton,” he says.
