Vertical Storage goes North

Modula, a leading provider of Vertical Storage Modules (VLMs) for any industry and application, has opened a new branch in Denmark marking the beginning of its expansion into the north. This strategic addition confirms Modula’s commitment to serving its customers more effectively and efficiently while further establishing its presence in the Nordic region.

With an impressive history in the field of automated storage since its first VLM was born in 1987, Modula has consistently delivered cutting-edge solutions to optimize warehouse and logistics operations, becoming a business partner for more than 20,000 customers around the world. The newest branch in Denmark, the ninth one in the world, marks a significant milestone in the company’s growth journey, enabling Modula to offer its state-of-the-art products and services to an even wider range of businesses in the region.

The Denmark branch, first of the planned northern additions, will allow Modula to work closely with existing and potential customers in the region, providing tailored solutions to meet their specific storage and retrieval needs. Therefore, Modula has hired a team of experienced professionals who are well-versed in the local market, ensuring that customers receive the highest level of service and support. To further enhancing customer satisfaction, this service will result in quicker response times for maintenance, technical support, and consultation.

In addition, customers in Denmark and the neighbouring countries will have access to Modula’s latest products, including vertical lift modules, horizontal carousels, customized software and picking solutions. All these products have been designed to improve warehouse efficiency and reduce operational costs in the supply chain. In accordance to Denmark and Sweden’s strong environmental values Modula remains committed to sustainability throughout the whole value chain. With Modula technologies, companies can minimize waste in all processes and create a better working environment for their employees.

Storage solutions for a wide range of local industries

“We are excited about the opening of our new branch in Northern Europe,” said Massimiliano Gigli, CEO and International Sales Director at Modula. “This expansion is a testament to our dedication to providing top-quality automated storage and retrieval solutions to our valued customers.” The company is looking forward to collaborating with businesses in Denmark to help them streamline their operations and achieve new levels of efficiency. This is also a mission close the heart of Jørgen Ladefoged, new CEO of Modula Nordics ApS: “After working for several years in logistics and industrial automation, I was seeking a new and exciting challenge that would combine innovation, growth, and a vision for the future. Modula’s rapidly expanding presence turned out to be the answer to what I was looking for. It’s a company that is continuously growing and is committed to investing more in the local market where it sees significant potential.”

Prior to its expansion plans Modula has taken a close look at the northern market to ensure that the newest locations are very well aligned with local trends and needs. Observations have shown that Sweden has seen notable developments in industries such as automotive manufacturing, information technology, electronic equipment production taking into consideration the geographical area and the ongoing growth trends. Denmark, on the other hand, is characterized by strengths in pharmaceutical production, technology, agriculture, food industry, renewable energies and sustainability. Meanwhile, Norway has a significant emphasis on oil and gas production and Finland on technology and manufacturing.

“I believe that Modula is the perfect product to introduce to the market due to its ability to adapt to any size, industry, and application. The work carried out in recent years with local dealers has allowed us to build brand awareness for our company, and we will continue to move in this direction to further establish our brand and make it known to all businesses, leveraging our international portfolio”, said Nicklas Lovqvist, Area Sales Manager Sweden. Modula’s expansion into Denmark and other Scandinavian countries aligns with the company’s mission to empower businesses worldwide with innovative, space-saving, and sustainable storage solutions. This new branch will complement Modula’s existing global network made by 4 headquarters (Italy, 2x USA, China), 9 branches (France, Germany, Spain, UK, Mexico, Singapore, Colombia, India, Nord Europa) and more than 100 Dealers around the world, consolidating the company’s position as a leader in the automated storage and retrieval industry. A new branch in Sweden will be added as early as the end of this year.
