Acme Opens An New Office In Riyadh To Suffice The Demand For Automated Distribution Centres And Warehouse


The country’s desire for automation solutions is driven by growth in the e-commerce industry and rising demand for industrial and retail warehouses. Acme, one of the regional pioneers in warehousing automation systems, has launched an office in Riyadh to meet the Kingdom’s growing demand.

According to Navin Narayan, CEO of Acme Intralog, “Saudi Arabia is on course to augment the non-oil industrial capabilities of the Kingdom by 2030. Adopting industry 4.0 automation solutions for both factories and distribution centres are imperative to achieving Vision 2030; we are here to support Saudi companies to achieve further growth through automation and robotics. We have delivered automation solutions to our Saudi customers for nearly a decade from our facilities in Dubai. By investing in a new office in Riyadh, we will be closer to our Saudi customers and can promptly support their operations and service any equipment without downtime. By the end of 2023, we aim to have a team of over 30 professionals in Saudi. We expect the demand for our services to come from industrial production companies, automotive, FMCG and F&B manufacturers, e-commerce, and fulfilment centres.”

Over the last few years, the Acme team has completed ten industrial and warehouse automation projects in Saudi Arabia. These include constructing a cutting-edge distribution centre in Jeddah for a multinational dairy firm. The customer significantly increased their capacity and improved their warehouse space by implementing automated solutions for truck unloading, pallet storage and retrieval, and WMS-controlled storage. The same customer then commissioned Acme to implement a robotic palletisation system, one of the largest in the region, and an automated truck-loading system.

Acme also implemented over six sortation centres in KSA for one of the largest global e-commerce organisations. Moreover, the company is currently delivering and commissioning two of the largest automated distribution centres in KSA for a leading fashion retailer.

To create awareness of the company’s solutions and capabilities, Acme also participated in the Gulfood Manufacturing industry show in Dubai until November 10, 2022. At the Acme stand, visitors could experience Kanghar, a high-density pallet shuttle from Acme, and cobots and automation components.
