Online PR News – 26-October-2010 – – Balingen 20th october 2010 - As a result, the 36-year-old graduate businessman is now in charge of the fortunes of the 100% subsidiary PESA with its logistics products and solutions, alongside the Bizerba "Industry Solutions" product organisation. All industry-relevant product families are therefore brought together under the responsibility of one managing director. Andreas Kraut is the great-grandson of the founder of the company and the son of the late head of Bizerba, Günther Kraut. His mother, Frigga Kraut, is the majority shareholder of Bizerba.

PESA Waagen AG became famous due to patenting the vibrating string weighing technique. The scales determine weight solely by using the frequency of a vibrating string and are therefore particularly precise and quick. In the logistics sector in particular, weighing processes no longer represent a bottleneck in material flow and goods processes. In fact, with periphery units, the scales can also became a complex data acquisition system.

An example: When combined with hardware and software components from Bizerba, the results are systems solutions which are particularly innovative for the logistics sector. This system can continuously size up, weigh and scan products automatically and supplies the data it collects to a host system. The Bizerba Parcel-Shipping-System software can then automatically determine the correct transport carrier. Companies can optimise their delivery management with this intelligent system solution and achieve considerable savings.

Individual hardware and software modules can be integrated flexibly into existing units. A consulting team from the Bizerba company accompanies the customer during installation and advises the customer in terms of how service contracts and financing options can be adjusted to their requirements.
