Material handling automation company MHS Global and warehouse software provider Fortna have merged, resulting in a single combined entity that will be known as Fortna.
The companies bring together experience in the design, development and delivery of omnichannel and parcel distribution solutions, offering customers end-to-end operations. The newly combined Fortna expects to offer customers partnerships and solutions to keep up with new demands and supply chain disruption.
Rob McKeel, CEO of Fortna, said, “The decision to retain the legacy Fortna name was the result of careful consideration. We chose the name Fortna not only for the great reputation the name already has in the market, but because of the strength and resilience embedded within it. The notion of fortitude. Of resilience and strength. It speaks to what our customers need in today’s climate and what they can expect from our partnership – the ability to weather the ever-changing market conditions and come out thriving.
“At the end of the day, our customers need to know they are ready for anything. That means operations that run at the speed of change – and the intelligence to anticipate what is next. We are thrilled to be able to provide the ability for our customers to create scalable, cost-efficient operations through automation.”
