Oak Brook, IL-Chamberlain Group (CGI), a global leader in access solutions and products, has acquired Systems, Inc. (SI), one of North America's leading dock-leveler manufacturers.
"Online retailers are driving growth in the warehouse space and that growth has increased the demand for integrated and efficient access solutions," said JoAnna Sohovich, CEO of CGI. "We're very excited about this acquisition because it expands the scope of solutions CGI provides by adding dock-levelers to our product offering and expanding our brand portfolio to meet the diverse needs of warehouse managers. It will also allow us to offer enhanced efficiency to end-users through the integration of automated solutions on our connected platforms."
Sohovich noted that Sl will continue to operate as they do now, with their President, Mike Pilgrim continuing to lead the dock-leveler business.
"We're very excited to be a part of the CGI team now," said Pilgrim. "A family-owned company of their caliber has the kind of resources and values-driven culture that any organization would want to be a part of."
"SI has excellent strength in manufacturing, they have great customer service and a very robust network of independent dealers, installers and national accounts," Sohovich added. "We're looking forward to the great things Mike and his team will do as a part of CGI."
