DC Velocity – September, 2015 – System Logistics Corp. opens facility for U.S. production of Modula lift module

Italian material handling equipment company Modula opened the doors of its upgraded manufacturing facility in Lewiston, Maine, on Friday, launching a renewed effort to compete in the warehouse automation market.

The factory adds a U.S. production center for Modula’s 50-foot-tall VLM after years of building them exclusively in Italian facilities. The new domestic production will give the company an advantage in meeting fast-growing U.S. demand for automated warehouse equipment, said Luigi Panzetti, CEO of System Group
