ST. LOUIS, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Align Production Systems announced today the launch a new division as a result of a partnership, Hedin USA, to manufacture and sell Hedin Lagan's battery powered transporters, AGV's, die changers, and tuggers in the North & South American markets.
"I am pleased to announce the formation of Hedin USA, a new wholly owned division of Align Production Systems, created in partnership with Hedin Lagan to manufacture and support battery powered transporter technologies in the North and South American markets," said Jason Stoecker, CEO of Align Production Systems, "Hedin Lagan has been a European market success story for 30 years and as a partner, APS has the advantage of bringing proven designs and technologies to the Americas. This creates a true global alliance to support our customers anywhere in the world."
Align Production Systems had seen an increased demand among its customer-base for wireless, battery powered transporters in the United States. Instead of developing the technology in-house, Align Production Systems approached Hedin Lagan with the idea of creating a joint venture to manufacture and sell Hedin's proven battery powered transporters in the North and South American markets. Hedin USA will offer customers the trusted equipment of Hedin with American-based access for manufacturing, engineering, and after-sales support.
