Starting the New Year on a positive note, LB Foster Materials Handling is on a substantial growth curve with several major contract wins. The success of 2013 has set the bar high for 2014, which LB Foster is already looking likely to exceed with many upcoming projects within the automotive, fashion and retail, and logistics and distribution industry sectors.
After the introduction of high performance ABB robots into its advanced automated solutions last year, LB Foster has already successfully integrated robots into various innovative bespoke conveying solutions. Robot based automation provides exceptional commercial benefits delivering sophisticated systems which combine quality with cost effectiveness.
LB Foster has set the pace for 2014 by securing a substantial contract with leading sign manufacturer, SignFab. The contract, which was awarded through the third party consultant, Colour Dynamics, is for an overhead conveyor which LB Foster will be installing to transfer signs through SignFab’s new paint process.
On top of the success LB Foster is having with local and national businesses, they have started the New Year with the completion of several overseas projects, including a garment handling and transportation solution installation in Dubai. Overall, this year is already looking busy for the company with several other, large contracts in the pipeline. With more details to follow.
