Primus is pleased to announce the addition of Randy Jennings to our team. Randy is an automation/material handling expert whose clients include Wal-Mart, Publix, Caterpillar, Saturn, Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing, Bridgestone-Firestone, Cummins Engine, Bobcat, Chrysler, Baxter Healthcare, Shaw Flooring and Sutter Home Wineries. His career includes roles at Swisslog, America in Motion, Transbotics Corporation, Mid-America Systems and NDC Automation.
Randy has been on the leading edge of automation solutions for three decades. “It’s not about the bright, shiny thing,” he said. “It’s about what will make our clients’ operations better. I want to position them for success.” His vast automation experience includes integrating PowerStore shuttle systems; monorails; pallet stacker cranes; compact small parts storage and picking systems; mini load cranes; Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs); flexible, modular conveyor and/or picking systems; modular warehouse management systems; and robotic mixed case palletizing systems.
Interestingly, Randy started his career as a mechanical engineer. He designed conveyors and conveyor systems and was one of the earliest contributors to the design of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), a system in place at our U.S. Cold project in Covington, TN.
Primus’s niche markets – cold storage, sterilization and manufacturing – are embracing automation as the most efficient means of producing and delivering their products. Randy will develop Primus’s automated material handling offerings to ensure Primus keeps pace with industry needs and reinforces the firm’s reputation as an industry leader.
“We are very proud and excited to have Randy join our team,” said Primus President Matt Hirsch. “He embodies the spirit of Primus’s business approach: to add value to our customers’ projects. I am looking forward to the opportunities this new service will bring.”
