Tompkins Robotics, a global leader focused on the robotic automation of distribution and fulfillment operations has announced two new leaders to its executive team. Both Wes Goode and Sean O’Farrell will be serving in the roles as Vice President of Operations and were brought on to keep pace with the company’s accelerated growth.
Wes has been in the material handling industry for 25 years and has experience building and implementing service teams, deployment of equipment and project implementation and execution. Wes has served as an executive for global material handling integrators, Vanderlande, Knapp and FKI, as well as the United States Postal Service. Wes was responsible for budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars and leading hundreds of employees in these organizations. Wes’ experience in starting and building successful service organizations will allow for continued growth of the Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) value proposition for Tompkins Robotics customers.
O’Farrell will be responsible for go-to-market strategies in Retail Micro Fulfillment Centers. As Retailers eCommerce operations around the world struggle with profitability, Tompkins Robotics t-Sort solution is well-positioned to help these retailers. Tompkins Robotics goals are to increase margins, quality, and accuracy, while reducing labor, footprint and costs for our customers.
Previously, O’Farrell spent a decade with Dematic Corporation as Global Market Development Director, where he worked in Grocery & Wholesale B2B verticals to strengthen business development, solution, product, and marketing strategies.
About Tompkins Robotics
Tompkins Robotics is a global leader focused on the robotic automation of distribution and fulfillment operations. Our primary system, tSort, consists of autonomous mobile robots that sort a wide range of items and parcels to consolidation points for order fulfillment, store replenishment, returns, parcel distribution – virtually any process in the supply chain. tSort is a truly modular, scalable, and portable robotic sortation system that helps build world-class supply chains while providing unmatched flexibility and throughput. With three models, tSort; tSort Plus; tSort Mini; and two sortation methods, tilt trays and cross belts, Tompkins Robotics systems handle the broadest range of product on the market – as small as a penny to up to 40 inches long by 30 inches wide and weighing up to 120 pounds. Our systems work in small operations in the backroom of a grocery, supercenter, or mall anchor store to large fulfillment centers processing millions of units a day. Our systems maximize performance, making our clients more agile, adaptable, profitable, and successful in today’s dynamic marketplace.
We also have other proprietary solutions such as the xChange, tSort3D, and xPress. xChange is a robotic sortation order removal and replacement system for orders and shipping systems. tSort3D is a new, very dense sortation system ideal for ecommerce and provides as much as 10 times the sort destinations and volume compared to competing solutions. xPress is an overhead robotic transport system that can be used in retail to DC environments. We continue to expand the core systems with complementary robotics and integrated material handling systems to automate fulfillment operations.
