Thanks to the positive growth in business, the company has grown, with a continuous upward trend, from nine employees in 2007 to 24 today. At the current site in Mäder, however, there is no more room for expansion. MIA is therefore investing €1.5 million in constructing a new company site in Hohenems.
MIA Transport is the Material Flow Controller (MFC) of the WMS. The MFC takes over the central control of the automatic transport system. The material flow and plant status are displayed visually to the user, and these provide the basis for monitoring and optimising the system.

On 31.10.2017 MIA invited family members, employees, planners and all the site tradesmen to the official ridge celebration. The joint celebration marked the first stage of building the new site. After a visit to the site, we rounded off a pleasant evening with food and drink.

“Creating the relevant difference for our customers requires flexible and scalable systems. On-line trading shows us how important automation will be for us in the years to come. Customers require same-day delivery. What I order today, I would like delivered today. This is an enormous challenge for logistics and IT systems. This cannot be realised through standard solutions, as the requirements of the customers are completely different. Flexible and tailor-made systems are required that are perfectly matched to each other. Logistics processes need to be automated to reduce wastage and throughput time. For this, digitalisation is the prerequisite for automation,” noted Alexander Fehr.
