SSI Shaefer boosts IT division
Following a significant period of sustained organic growth, SSI Schaefer Ltd has expanded its Midlands-based facility at Pury Hill, near Towcester in Northamptonshire.
Prior to April the Towcester operation, which had already effectively doubled in size only two years ago, was housed in one building accommodating the key business elements of Solution Design, Project Management, Customer Services & Support and IT.
The newly expanded operation involves the acquisition of an additional building to accommodate the company’s IT Department, which had previously shared offices with Customer Services & Support (CSS).
SSI Schaefer has been steadily developing its local IT capability to cover the UK. It offers customised logistics software for every requirement, based on its own warehouse management system, WAMAS, as well as SAP EWM – for which it also has dedicated specialists. Employing some seven hundred software specialists across the globe, SSI Schaefer remains at the forefront of automation IT provision, continually developing and refining its logistics control systems.
