Modula has been in business for 35 years with over 117,000 clients worldwide. They are the leading manufacturer of automated storage solutions, designed to optimize space and improve picking and storage operations for any industrial sector or environment. They have plants in the United States, Italy and China. Their U.S. manufacturing operations are in Lewiston, Maine and Franklin, Ohio. Modula acquired the former the Dayton Daily News building, in 2020 and invested $30M to increase their U.S. production capacity from 500 units to 2,000 units per year.
The vertical lift module (VLM) line maximizes the storage potential of high-ceiling facilities and securing items in enclosed units up to 54 feet tall. The horizontal carousels are ideal for low-ceiling environments, as well as those seeking maximum throughput. For both solutions, automated delivery dramatically increases productivity and saves operators from unnecessary bending, walking, and reaching for parts.
Modula has graciously agreed to host the local SME chapter to tour their Franklin, Ohio facility. Tour date is October 17 at 4:30 PM. This tour will consist of a power point presentation followed by a tour of their manufacturing operations. (Also see Modula.us)
