System Logistics Technologies and Know-How Wins Over Northern Europe

MODENA, ITALY - A leading Swedish company has placed a new order with System Logistics for the design and installation of a system worth over $40m. Spendrups Bryggeri AB is one of the oldest breweries in Sweden and is owned by the Spendrup family, which has been running it since 1897. With over 1000 employees, the company is the largest beverage producer and distributor in Sweden for the market leading brands of beer, soft drinks, fruit juices, wines, spirits and coffee. Spendrups' success is built upon a history of innovation and tradition, a vision shared by Gruppo System.

This major project involves the construction of a system capable of concentrating finished product storage and optimizing distribution at the Spendrups Brewery in Grängesberg, (one of the group's four breweries). The system will consist of 12 stacker cranes to accommodate approximately 47,000 pallet slots. The Spendrups project follows other major jobs obtained during 2009 and 2010 in the same sector and the same area. Support from the local branch - System Northern Europe with an office in Malmö - was of essential importance. This confirms that Gruppo System's strategy, aimed at establishing branches in foreign markets so as to provide before- and after-sales services locally to its customers, is a winning choice.

Spendrups' decision to select System Logistics as their supplier is a testament to the excellent results the Italian company, based in Fiorano Modenese, has achieved in recent years in the food and beverage sector. The development of technologies dedicated to the beverage sector, together with the technical design expertise that has always been the feather in System Logistics' cap, led to the creation of a partnership and a relationship based upon mutual trust between the two companies.
