Since 1947, SencorpWhite’s automated storage and retrieval systems have been a leader in the North American market. With Minerva’s unique software design features and SencorpWhite’s expertise in material handling equipment, this powerful merger provides the supply chain industry with the widest available range of warehouse automation products and support services.
Minerva Associates, based in San Diego, CA, has provided warehouse management, warehouse control, and asset management system software since 1987. Serving a base of regional distributors to Fortune 500 customers, Minerva’s WMS, WCS, and AMS products are field-proven in distribution, manufacturing and 3PL billing & order management.
This merger complements SencorpWhite’s inventory storage and retrieval products and extensive field-service options. It strengthens SencorpWhite’s expanding software resources and allows the SencorpWhite family to offer comprehensive, turn-key hardware and software solutions; solutions that improve accuracy and efficiency, and satisfy unique customer needs with increased configuration choices. This acquisition further strengthens the company’s overall value proposition in the market, in tandem with the 2017 acquisition of Intek warehouse software and the partnership with ICAM for vertical lift modules.
“We are excited to be a part of this strategic merger,” said Lisa Minerd who will remain Minerva’s President. “SencorpWhite shares our dedication to provide customers with the highest level of service, and comprehensive system solutions that improve the customer’s bottom line.”
