Advanced Handling acquired by the Sunnex Group
28 January 2013
The Swedish-owned Sunnex Group has bought Advanced Handling off Metalrax Group.
The Sunnex Group has two specialist divisions, Sunnex Industrial and Sunnex Lighting & Medical. Sunnex had previously been growing sales in the UK through their existing operation, Movomech Pronomic (UK) which will now be absorbed into the business of Advanced Handling.
From their Market Deeping facility, Advanced Handling continues to design and manufacture standard and bespoke solutions comprising of: mobile and static scissor tables, access platforms, award winning stackers and mezzanine floor lifts.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for our company to become part of a bigger family with Sunnex,” said Mike Prince, Managing Director, Advanced Handling. "Strategically this acquisition helps us grow in terms of our product development and services. Across the group the focus towards innovation, ergonomic design and providing bespoke solutions is shared, and the obvious benefits of this are to our customers. We now have a greater range of materials handling solutions which will enable us to provide an improved response in solving our customers’ needs.”
The acquisition expands the range of materials handling solutions Advanced Handling currently provides with a range of light duty trollies, scissor tables and overhead rail systems. A selection of the new range of materials handling and lifting solutions will be showcased by Advanced Handling at IMHX 2013, 19-22 March 2013 on Stand No. 20F86.
