Wynright Corporation, a Daifuku group company, has named Cory Flemings executive vice president (EVP) for sales. Flemings will lead the Wynright sales team in selling advanced automated material handling systems in North America. He comes to Wynright with extensive experience in spearheading sales of mini-load, carousel, picking, AGV, and sortation systems for complex material handling and logistic applications.
“The recovering economy is placing new demands across the supply chain, and this is creating new challenges and opportunities for warehouse and distribution center automation companies. Meeting the challenges and leveraging the opportunities requires a deep understanding of customer needs and the technology available to meet them. Cory comes to us with a multi-million-dollar track record of doing just that, all around the world,” said Kevin Ambrose, CEO and President of Wynright.
Most recently, Flemings served as the Global Sales Director for JBT Corporation’s Automated Guided Vehicle Division. He was also the co-founder of Abco Automation, which sold automated systems in the USA and from locations in both Saudi Arabia and Mexico. Prior to that, he was Executive Sales Manager for Schaefer Systems International of Germany and before that, he was Vice President for Sales and Marketing with Knapp Logistics & Automation, of Austria.
Flemings holds a degree in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Modeling from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He has also completed two years as a guest graduate student in International Relations & Economics at the Hochschule St. Gallen in Switzerland, from which he received a prestigious Olmsted Scholarship.
