Regional Sales Manager, West Coast

The warehouse of the future contains high-density, high-precision racking with automated pallet shuttles (like our atlas 1D) instead of wide aisles that forklifts need to pass through.

Our customers benefit from much better utilization of their warehouses (up to 70% more pallet storage than traditional rack!), maximized vertical space, improved accuracy in pallet selection, and minimized labor costs and product damage.

Over the span of more than 40 years, we’ve grown into a company with 10 manufacturing facilities, 19 commercial offices, and the know-how of around 2000 employees serving customers in 40 countries.

Early 2021, we opened our US Office and have already grown to around 50 people. It’s exciting times to be at stow!
