Warehouse Innovation Awards

Chosen for Providing State-of-the-Art Solutions for Growing Companies

Carlstadt, NJ – April 21, 2015 – W&H Systems, Inc., a full-service integrator of material handling systems, announces the company has received a Warehouse Innovation Award from Beverage World magazine. These prestigious inaugural awards honor companies that are leading beverage warehouses into the future with exceptional services and products. W&H Systems has helped hundreds of beverage companies improve throughput, streamline operations and gain new efficiencies within their distribution operations with robust and innovative material handling systems.

“In the beverage industry, SKU proliferation means beverage space is at a premium, increased competition requires faster throughput, and exponential growth intensifies customer service levels, which requires beverage companies to either build a new distribution center or streamline operations within an existing one,” said Don Betman, President of W&H Systems. “W&H Systems had been helping beverage companies meet these growing issues for years and we are honored to be recognized for our significant work in the industry.”

Most recently W&H Systems acted as the material handling systems integrator to implement the latest cutting edge beverage distribution operations for Wirtz Beverage and Southern Wine and Spirits. W&H Systems provides “The Total Warehouse Solution” that includes design, equipment, implementation and support of conveyor systems, high-speed carton and unit sortation, AS/RS, palletizers, paperless picking and packing systems. Beverage companies receive significant labor savings, reduce product damage and operator error, meet demanding throughput requirements and gain substantial efficiencies from W&H Systems designs and solutions.

Most recent client successes include Wirtz Beverage where W&H Systems helped consolidate three facilities into one new distribution center. For Southern Wine & Spirits of California, W&H Systems was selected to be the material handling systems integrator for their new highly automated warehouse in Union City, CA. “Clients chose to work with us because we have over 20 years of success in the wine & spirits and beverage industries implementing best practices in distribution operations,” said Paul Laman, VP of Sales at W&H Systems.

Laman has been chosen to speak at BevOps Fleet Summit, scheduled for April 21-24, 2015, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In its 10th year, BevOps is the premier event for beverage warehousing, operations and fleet management hosted by Beverage World.
