After reporting 36% growth to $316 million, Bastian Solutions jumped up two positions to claim 14th place. In 2018, Bastian Solutions acquired Peach State Integrated Technologies, an Atlanta-based consulting and integration firm. The company also acquired Toyota Material Handling’s autonomous vehicle group in an effort to bring Toyota’s automation business under the Toyota Advanced Logistics Systems umbrella.
