Bastian Solutions, an AutoStore integrator, announced its 100th AutoStore project. This milestone underscores the enduring collaboration between Bastian and AutoStore to expand industry standards and redefine what is possible in the supply chain industry. 

Toyota Material Handling Project 

The Toyota Material Handling facility in Columbus, Indiana, will be the site of their 100th project. Designed and executed to address critical operational objectives, the system will reduce the warehouse footprint and elevate order picking efficiency and accuracy while improving ergonomics, workflow and reporting for those working there. With the installation of 28 R5 robots and more than 90,000 storage bins, this AutoStore System will support Toyota Material Handling's commitment to optimizing operations.

Long-Term Collaboration 

Beginning with Bastian and AutoStoreā€™s first successful go-live in 2015, both companies recognized the value of working together and leveraging their unique strengths and expertise to create synergies that drive success. 

"Our partnership with AutoStore has been nothing short of exceptional over the last eight years," said Aaron Jones, President & CEO of Bastian Solutions. "Our first collaboration for an apparel company in the U.S. remains an ongoing mutual customer relationship.ā€ 

This client worked with Bastian Solutions to integrate its first AutoStore System in 2015. Since then, the retailer has expanded multiple times, utilizing Bastian and AutoStoreā€™s combined expertise to meet their operational goals. 

ā€œThis represents just one of numerous instances where our warehouse automation solutions have revolutionized customer operations,ā€ continued Jones. 

Looking Ahead 

As Bastian Solutions and AutoStore celebrate this significant project, both companies remain committed to continued collaboration and innovation. 

Mats Hovland Vikse, AutoStore CEO, spoke about the importance of the partnership with Bastian Solutions: "Our partners are critical to the delivery of world class solutions for customers. Their role involves incorporating our standardized, scalable technology to meet complex, diverse customer needs across the globe. We highly value our close collaboration with Bastian Solutions and look forward to driving continued mutual success."

"Today, Bastian Solutions is North Americaā€™s leading AutoStore integrator with a growing number of opportunities across many industries including grocery, retail, and industrial distribution," said Jones. "Together, we have a bright future ahead."
