The 10th edition of the India Warehousing Show, an event showcasing all aspects of logistics, storage and the supply chain, took place in Pragati Maidan, Delhi, between 20 and 22 June 2019. WRH Global, a sister company of Swiss company Ferag well established in India with its newspaper mailroom systems, exhibited trays for Denisort, its tilt tray sorting and conveying system. It also showed an automatic case erector from Endoline Machinery, UK.
Kawal Arora, managing director of WRH Global India said, “We are originally from the Ferag Group which was in the newspaper industry. We are using the same technology that we were using at Ferag in our mailroom systems – for conveying printed newspaper copies to stacker bundlers. We are applying the same technology to other industries such as warehousing and automation to move a product within a production facility or within a warehouse. Our two keys products are plate chain conveyors and sorters. Skyfall, our overhead conveyor system, is automated technology for buffering, sorting and consolidating. These functions are performed while the material is moving. We also specialize in providing excellent multi-level conveying systems for multistory plants.”
Talking about WRH’s product applications in packaging, Arora explained, “In the context of packaging, we have machines that can be connected with our conveying systems, for example, we are displaying a box packaging and sealing machine which can be connected with our conveyors and can together become a complete line.” Apart from being used in all the major dailies in India to evacuate printed newspapers from the delivery end of their high-speed presses, the WRH conveying system, Deniway, a plate chain conveyor system, is in operation in the Bisleri bottling plant in Mumbai.
Speaking about his experience at the India Warehousing Show, Arora said, “This is our third time in this show. We provide niche market products and difficult application solutions. So far, we have met very few prospects or potential clients but the general inquiries are numerous. Our products are project-based and customized, hence, we cannot finalize a deal instantly. However, it is good to participate, make new contacts and meet new customers and talk about our solutions. We get to meet potential end users. Visitors from the eCommerce industry such as Aditya Birla, Amazon, Myntra and Flipkart are here.”
