Modern Materials Handling Names Bastian Solutions to 2015 Top 20 Systems Suppliers List

April 16, 2015 - Bastian Solutions was featured in Modern Materials Handling magazine profiling the top 20 systems suppliers worldwide.  According to Josh Bond, author and associate editor Modern Materials Handling, Bastian Solutions claimed the 19th spot.


In discussing how the company broke into the top 20, President Aaron Jones explained, “Bastian Solutions made investments in robotic manufacturing including mixed-case, full-layer palletizing and machine tending robotic solutions. The company also released an updated software suite as well as a new modular, low-profile conveyor line called ZiPline. There were also expansions into two new U.S. markets, Chicago and New Jersey, and the opening of an international office in Montreal, Canada.”

This year’s MMH Top 20 companies are joined by countless others committed to helping the materials handling industry improve and better serve manufacturers and distributors worldwide. To qualify for Modern’s Top 20 list, companies must be suppliers of materials handling systems, not just equipment providers. In addition to manufacturing at least two major handling system components, a company must also employ full-time staff that designs, installs and integrates materials handling systems.
