Dutch company VanRiet and Italian firm OCM have rebranded as MHS, providing a unified brand identity to customers.
The two companies say renaming and rebranding the firm is a significant evolution, providing a one-stop-shop of material handling automation and software.
MHS set up its first European office in November 2017 with the acquisition of VanRiet, followed by OCM a year later.
In the year since the acquisition, MHS says it has researched and developed new technologies, and market automation solutions to a growing global market.
Markus Augeneder, CEO of MHS’s international unit responsible for operations outside of the USA, said, “Since becoming part of the MHS family, our European businesses have strengthened our core values of reliability, trust and innovation to take care of our customers and support the continued global expansion of MHS.”
Scott McReynolds, CEO and co-founder of MHS Global, said, “Meeting global e-commerce demand requires immense materials handling infrastructure and fuels our vision for MHS as a turnkey solutions provider with best-in-class automation technology and support. This rebranding gives us the strong global identity to continue our growth trajectory in a fast-paced logistics market.”
