Winner, Ltd., a distributor of beer, wine and spirits throughout Maryland has selected RIMS®, Robocom's warehouse management system. F.P. Winner will implement RIMS to manage its new automated distribution center in Rosedale, Maryland.
F. P. Winner's volume has risen 33% in recent years with the addition of brands such as Corona and will exceed 4,400,000 cases this year and grow by 10% annually over the next five years.
