Indian industry’s rapid growth demanded a corresponding response in support services such as end-to-end storage system solutions. In 2006, the Group began a new industrial endeavour: the design and manufacture of adjustable pallet racking systems, draw racks and mobile shelving.

The success of this soon dictated the need for a separate company to scale up the activity to a global level.

The Group identified market leader Armes Spa of Italy, which has been meeting a spectrum of storage needs for the past 50 years, as the appropriate strategic partner. The joint venture was named Armes Maini Storage Systems Pvt Ltd. (AMSS).

The AMSS product palette offers industrial racking, boltless shelving, mezzanines, decking and related special systems solutions.

These are created at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, outside Bangalore, commissioned in October 2006, one supported by a countrywide sales network.

Scalability and flexibility to adapt to different user requirements characterize AMSS’ end-to-end storage system solutions and varied accessory options extend customisation for a spectrum of user needs.

AMSS’ customers include Bata, Mahindra and Mahindra, Parle Agro, Pepsico and Volkswagen. Investment in cutting edge technologies such as high capacity profile lines for beam production pave the way for product introductions of automatic vertical carousels have helped establish it in new customer segments extending from logistics to FMCG; documentation storage and retail.
