VMI Group Announces Expansion of Care Business Line
VMI Group today announced expansion of its Care business line to include KLS Netherlands BV. KLS is a leading player in the development and sale of completely automated logistical systems for medicine distribution. As with VMI, KLS is already part of TKH Group. KLS will become fully integrated into VMI’s Care business line as of 1 January 2015.
“Integration of KLS into VMI brings immediate synergy that goes beyond just opening up new market opportunities,” said Dirk Reurslag, Sales Director Industrial Solutions & Services. “From the KLS perspective, VMI offers its vast experience and know-how in informatics and logistics automation. KLS products and services will benefit from the established strength of VMI’s world-class R&D competencies and project management experience. And as part of VMI Group, KLS will be able to support clients more effectively – with expert staff operating from VMI’s existing locations in Europe, North America, South America, Southeast Asia, Russia and China.”
From the VMI perspective, KLS offers an opportunity to strengthen VMI’s already enviable position in the rapidly growing care market. That fits well into VMI’s growth strategy to become a leading innovative supplier in every industry in which VMI is active.
Integration of KLS into VMI is already in full progress, and the 1 January 2015 target date is expected to be achieved.
