AS/R Senior Partner - Doug Robertson, BA.Sc., P.E., MBA
Doug Robertson, founder of AS/R Systems, Inc., began his engineering work at IBM in the Resource Planning department where responsibilities included operations planning, facility design and capital equipment acquisitions. It was Doug’s job to apply new technologies in developing cost effective material handling systems that delivered tighter inventory pipelines while using less labor and space. In 1980 Doug joined G.N. Johnson (a leading distributor of Raymond material handling systems), to develop, design and integrate systems for a broader base of clients. In 1982, White Storage and Retrieval asked Doug to join them in establishing the eastern region of a newly formed Canadian subsidiary; focusing on the integration of newly developed carousel based “pick to light” methods and solutions within distribution and manufacturing operations. In 1991 Doug left White and formed AS/R Systems Inc., transferring all specialized knowledge gained on the front lines of PC/network based carousel automation, into the rebuilding, installing and integration of AS/R’s products and services. Doug received his Bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1978, a Masters in Business Admin in 1985 from the same school and is a licensed professional engineer in his home province of Ontario. Bottom line: Doug and his staff bring specialized knowledge, unique skills and years of experience to all that choose AS/R Systems, Inc.
