International brands VanRiet and OCM rebrand as MHS

The latest step of the integration process for a single global brand identity supporting cohesive customer experience and integrated path forward.

(Mt. Washington, Ky.) Feb. 10, 2020 – VanRiet and OCM announce their rebranding into MHS. As of today, the two European-based companies – formerly part of the MHS family – are now simply referred to as MHS, providing a unified brand identity to customers.

This rename and rebrand represents a significant step in the companies’ evolution, now a one-stop-shop of material handling automation and software solutions, with experienced cross-functional teams consisting of professionals and reinforced specialties.

“Consolidating legacy brands into a single MHS identity is an important step to portray our broad capabilities and consistent customer experience worldwide,” says Markus Augeneder, the company’s CEO of International, responsible for MHS operations outside the U.S. “Since becoming part of the MHS family, our European businesses have strengthened our core values of reliability, trust and innovation to take care of our customers and support the continued global expansion of MHS.”

Settling its first office in Europe in November 2017, then with the acquisition of the Dutch VanRiet and the Italian OCM one year later, MHS expanded 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.

“Meeting global e-commerce demand requires immense materials handling infrastructure and fuels our vision for MHS as a turnkey solutions provider with best-in-class automation technology and support,” says Scott McReynolds, CEO and Co-Founder, MHS Global. “This rebranding gives us the strong global identity to continue our growth trajectory in a fast-paced logistics market.”

Visit MHS at LogiMat, 10 – 12 March 2020, in Stuttgart Hall 1 – Stand G05 to know more about the company’s global reach, broad lineup of automated transport and sorting solutions, and robust support offerings.
