Matter SRL, a major Italian builder of custom and modular Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (ASRS) for the metals industry, has formed Matter USA Corporation as a subsidiary for application engineering, sales and service in the North American market.
Matter systems are found in mills, metal service centers and metals processing plants worldwide and the company recently exhibited its offerings at FABTECH in Chicago. Matter has several systems currently operating in North America at major pipe and tube producers as well as major metal service centers.
Matter systems comprise custom-designed Matter Pro automated intralogistic warehouses for automated storage and handling of large quantities of bar, profile, tube, billet, sheet and slab metal materials, as well as dies and other processing components. These automated warehouse systems are designed to optimize space by increasing the quantity of stored material per square meter, thereby maximizing the efficiency of handling and utilization of plant space. All Matter Pro systems are designed to customer specifications yet offer flexibility and myriad handling options.
Meanwhile, Matt Box systems offer modular and multi-purpose automated warehouse concepts, designed for smaller quantities of material. They are the preferred option for job shops, smaller production departments and specialty metals distributors.
As VP of sales Alec Banish explains, “The degree of automation in the market today is moving very quickly and our systems offer the North American market flexibility, turnkey materials handling and the safety of a totally automated system, plus the security of an under-roof operation, which significantly reduces material damage, and provides instant access to your inventory without human intervention.”
Matter USA will be based in Texas and serve the North American market, operating in tandem with their longtime rep group, Robert Warnock Co., Inc.
