Mason-based business buys software company [Middletown Journal, Ohio]
(Middletown Journal (OH) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dec. 21--MASON -- Intelligrated, an automated material handling solutions provider headquartered in Mason, has acquired New York-based Knighted, a provider of supply chain software solutions, company officials announced Friday.
Company officials from Intelligrated said the acquisition was a strategic component of Intelligrated's mission to deliver innovative solutions for its customers. Intelligrated designs, manufactures and installs complete material handling automation solutions, including conveyor systems, sorting systems, and various related robotics.
Headquartered in Ossining, N.Y., Knighted provides web-enabled logistics software for supply chain operations. The company's products include warehouse management software (WMS), warehouse control software (WCS) and labor management software (LMS). The solutions are an ideal complement to Intelligrated's portfolio of automated material handling systems, warehouse control systems and order fulfillment software, officials said.
"Today's multichannel retail and consumer demands require fulfillment operations to deliver orders faster and more efficiently than ever before," said Greg Cronin, executive vice president of Intelligrated. " The acquisition of Knighted enhances Intelligrated's ability to deliver modular solutions that are not only easy to implement and upgrade, but are also capable of making decisions at the speed of automation, increasing distribution and fulfillment capacity and lowering supply chain costs."
Knighted's suite of solutions, now available through Intelligrated, enable warehouse and distribution centers to streamline operations, improve productivity and maximize the value of labor, automation and supervisory control.
Knighted will continue to operate independently under the Intelligrated umbrella, reporting to Greg Cronin of Intelligrated. Over the coming months, Intelligrated and Knighted will integrate select administrative operations and combine software development resources, officials said.
