Tom Pollard presents with commentary from former director of information technologies, Brewers Distributor Ltd. Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012

Grimsby, Ontario, Canada (August 14, 2012) - RMT Robotics® (www.rmtrobotics.com), a Cimcorp Oy company, is pleased to present "The Case for Robotics: A First Look the 2012 Automation of One of North America's Largest Beer Distribution Centers" at the National Beer Wholesalers Association's (NBWA) Annual Convention at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 in San Diego, Calif.


Tom Pollard, P. Eng., application engineer, Automated Warehousing Systems, RMT Robotics, will be speaking with commentary from the former director of information technologies, Brewers Distributor Ltd. (BDL). The seminar presents an in-depth look at the groundbreaking automation, including the decision-making process, the pros and cons of implementation, the justification and the extended factors that drove the automation of one of North America's largest beer distribution centers.

"We are looking forward to presenting one of this year's NBWA educational seminars," said Pollard. "It's an excellent opportunity to inform beer distributors about how robotic gantry systems can improve their distribution facilities and to discuss our latest installation."

RMT Robotics will have a booth at the convention. RMT representatives will be available to discuss their robotic gantry case and layer picking solutions as well as new designs for affordable solutions for smaller distribution centers. Visit RMT Robotics at Booth #511 where they will also be displaying a video of the automation at BDL.

The NBWA 75th Annual Convention takes place Oct. 14-17, 2012 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego.
