Geek+, which develops autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), has announced a strategic partnership with Systemex Automation, a Canadian systems integrator. The partnership will allow Systemex Automation to offer its customers Geek+’s full portfolio of picking, moving, sorting and automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) AMR solutions.

“We are delighted to ally with Systemex Automation as their first AMR partner in North America,” said Randy Randolph, Geek+ Americas vice president of channels and partnerships. “This is another milestone in our expansion in the Americas, continuing our strategy of working with trusted partners to scale our deployments and offer customers the flexible automation solutions they need to achieve their goals.”

The agreement comes after a series of new addition to Geek+’s AMR solutions, including its latest goods-to-person solution, PopPick (pictured above), which debuted earlier this year at Modex 2022, as well as Sky-Storage & Ground-Pick, which combines four-way shuttles for reserve pallet storage with Geek+’s P-series picking robots for forward picking.

“We are excited to partner with Geek+ to complement our growth strategy in the automated warehouse operations for the Canadian and U.S. markets,” said Serge Tousignant, president of Systemex Automation. “We’re convinced that Geek+’s wide range and versatile AMR solutions combined with Systemex Automation’s integration capabilities in the automation industry for manufacturers, distributors and retailers is a win-win formula. It will enable us to offer our customers the best value and most flexible automation solutions on the market.”
