MHS announced the acquisition of VanRiet in May 2018 and OCM in August of the same year, expanding the company’s footprint in Europe and China. In the years since the acquisition, MHS has worked to support the research and development of new technologies, and market advanced automated solutions to a growing global market, backed with responsive local support. The foundations of MHS Tamworth in the United Kingdom go back to 1990 with the establishment of VanRiet UK.
Since its establishment, VanRiet UK followed an innovative path independently from their Dutch counterparts and specialised in designing, manufacturing and installing a broad range of conveyor and robotic handling solutions along the way. A few years ago, VanRiet UK came back under the wings of the VanRiet Group headquartered in The Netherlands. From today onwards operations in Tamworth will be known as MHS Tamworth. Almost 20 dedicated location employees with many years of manufacturing experience and systems expertise are brought together under one roof.
Our locations are based on family business traditions, with strong social values and people caring about people. This translates into caring about customers and colleagues and ensuring long-lasting relationships. Working at MHS means working on breakthrough solutions for leading customers in Courier Express Parcel and Distribution + Fulfillment markets in an expanding environment with many opportunities. “We go over, go under, go around or go through – but never give up.” We call this going Above + Beyond.
