Duravant LLC has announced that it has acquired National Presort, LP, a leading manufacturer of automated parcel sortation systems headquartered in Fort Worth, TX. For over 45 years, NPI has served e-commerce, courier, parcel post, warehouse and fulfillment operations with advanced turnkey equipment solutions designed to increase throughput, improve accuracy, and reduce fulfillment time.
“We are excited to welcome NPI to Duravant,” said Mike Kachmer, Chairman and CEO of Duravant. “The addition of their unique sortation technology to our material handling portfolio complements our strong position in e-commerce and distribution centers and greatly extends our reach with parcel and courier customers.”
NPI manufactures high speed sortation systems that are modular and configured to customers’ specific application needs. Their highly differentiated sorting equipment features a sliding shoe and slat design and is engineered to gently and precisely sort flats, poly bags, boxes, irregularly shaped parcels and mixed mail at speeds of up to 24,000 pieces per hour. NPI’s software and service offerings further optimize productivity of the entire fulfillment line.
“NPI has experienced tremendous growth, and now our partnership with Duravant greatly enhances our ability to deliver even more value-added solutions to our expanding customer base,” said Brent Daboub, President of NPI. “We’re excited to leverage new resources available to us and collaborate with our colleagues at FMH Conveyors and other Duravant operating companies.”
NPI has two manufacturing sites in the US and a nationwide fleet of service technicians. NPI’s end-to-end capabilities begin with a consultative approach to designing integrated systems and continue through installation and lifetime aftermarket support.
“NPI has established itself as an innovative leader in material handling automation, and we look forward to supporting their continued growth into new markets and regions,” said Raman Joshi, Group President of Duravant Material Handing Solutions. “NPI is far more than a strategic fit. Their customer-focused culture is in perfect alignment with Duravant’s core values.”
