Wheeling, Ill., July 31, 2018 — Fluence Automation, the leading manufacturer of mail and parcel sorting equipment, software and services, announced today that it has acquired POST Integrated Solutions (POST-IS), a parcel processing and material handling technology company serving the ecommerce, postal and parcel automation markets.
Strategically, the move further enhances Fluence Automation’s technology offerings and adds a dedicated team of professionals in the growing parcel delivery and ecommerce fulfillment automation markets, while the company continues to serve customers in traditional mail and postal sorting.
POST-IS and Fluence Automation have already worked closely together to serve customers. The combined entity has a comprehensive automation platform to provide high-speed parcel induction, encoding and data-automation solutions including scanning, dimensioning, weighing, address reading, variable-length, dynamic labeling and sorting technology.
“The addition of POST-IS complements our efforts in the surging ecommerce automation space and will help our customers reduce costs and delivery timeframes by increasing production speed in their ecommerce, mail and parcel processing, distribution and shipping operations,” says Mike Swift, president and CEO of Fluence Automation.
Rob Stone, founder and president of POST-IS, will join Fluence Automation and lead the Fluence business unit focused on eCommerce automation.
“We are excited to build on the success we’ve had at POST-IS over the past several years, now as part of Fluence,” says Stone. “The company has a strong, growing business with an outstanding suite of products, software and technical support. I look forward to tapping the collective resources of the organization to provide expanded solutions for customers.”
