YORK, Pa., January 17, 2007 - Westfalia Technologies (www.WestfaliaUSA.com), a leading provider of warehouse and plant automation solutions for more than 35 years, is partnering with Automated Self Storage Systems, LLC to provide Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) for a new automated self-storage facility in Delray Beach FL. Automated Self Storage System designs their facility to resemble offices or apartments in order to fit in with the surrounding area.
Each storage module is 10' W x 20'L x 8" H, and can be subdivided to fit an individual's rental storage needs. Customers can access their module by swiping an ID card which will signal the Storage and Retrieval Machine (SRM) to retrieve the appropriate module, and present it to the customer. The initial project will handle approximately 200 modules and is due for completion in 2007.
About Automated Self Storage Systems, LLC
Located in Delray Beach, Florida, (www.AutomatedSelfStorage.com)
"Automated Self Storage Systems, LLC is pleased to introduce the newest solution and final generation in self storage. Our public storage retrieval system will offer customers the convenience and ability to pull up to one of several storage bays, enter in their code into a keypad and have their storage unit electronically delivered to them for loading and unloading purposes. This concept saves customers time and ultimately money as they avoid the traveling in and out of the indoor storage facilities to load and unload their personal items through several trips. Although this may be a first in automation for Automated Self Storage Systems, LLC, we are no stranger to the self storage industry. For over 15 years we have developed, constructed, managed and operated numerous self storage facilities throughout South Florida and New Jersey and have listened to the customers' requests for improvements from site to site. We have made changes with each new building in an effort to meet customer needs and satisfaction. With time being the most valuable asset today, our development team met regularly and strategized for a new plan. As a result, the concept for automation was born."
