First ever AS/RS installed in Myanmar
Daifuku Co., Ltd. (headquarter: Osaka, Japan; Representative: Masaki Hojo, President and CEO) has successfully handed over what is reported to be the first ever AS/RS in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The AS/RS is being used by Myanmar Pharmaceutical Industries, a government owned pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Myanmar Pharmaceuticals Industries built a state-of-the-art Snake Anti-Venom Production Centre in Yangon, and Daifuku’s unit-load AS/RS (four stacker cranes, 4,224 pallets) was incorporated for the storage of raw materials and finished products for this and surrounding factories.
On May 20, an opening ceremony was held with the Union Ministers of Industry and Construction, and over 100 related personnel in attendance.
Hiroshi Geshiro, Director and General Manager of Daifuku’s FA&DA Global Operations, who attended the event, stated, “We feel honored to be chosen to supply the first ever AS/RS in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. We hope that our system can contribute to the economic progess of the country.”
