SMB International

Customized systems and complete solutions for industrial applications from a single source

Experts for intralogistics

For the most economical storage as well as energy-optimised warehousing and retrieval, the internal processes must be optimally interlocked. Our special machine engineering always aims at the best individual solution for our customers' production. From planning and construction to commissioning and maintenance, we ensure the most efficient control, implementation and organisation of the material flows within a storage operation, including the transport of goods in the warehouse or factory premises.

In addition, we create the basis for flexible expansion options, as storage and conveyor systems, filling systems and palletising technology as well as robotics and the associated comissioning software are developed and designed from a single source at the Quickborn site near Hamburg.
