Over 30 years of experience and success
Since 1986, we’ve provided world-class solutions to improve workplace safety. Through long-term customer relationships and industry partnerships, our name has become synonymous with innovation, quality and reliability. We’ve been able to grow organically as a private, self-financed company. Because we re-invest our earnings into new product development and our professional team. And because we focus on long-term, sustainable values, as well as near-term success.
Our customers come in all sizes: multi-national corporations, medium-size organizations and small companies. In more than 45 countries around the world, our customers have entrusted us to ensure safe, smooth industrial operations.
Focusing on digitization and Industry 4.0
Cars have become digital platforms, with a wide range of automated driver-assistance safety features. And fully autonomous vehicles are on the horizon. We’ve applied this leading-edge technology to material handling equipment - to create digital “guardian angels” for forklifts and other industrial trucks. By automating lift truck safety, we not only protect workers and equipment, we help make material handling more efficient, productive and profitable.
Our forklift safety solutions are based on an intelligent interplay of hardware, software, sensors and wireless technologies. Our systems preemptively recognize dangerous situations and intervene - either automatically or semi-autonomously - to prevent accidents.
Using innovative Lidar, radar, UWB and RFID technologies, our systems help lift trucks recognize - and avoid collisions with - pedestrians and other vehicles. Our systems communicate in real time using the latest “vehicle-to-vehicle” and “vehicle-to-X” RF technology from the automotive industry. The “X” includes both facility infrastructure and pedestrian ID badges.
