FARMINGTON HILLS — The Farmington Hills-based materials handling firm Jervis B. Webb Co. Friday announced a $17 million contract with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
In a phased approach, Webb will install a variety of baggage handling technologies, including scales, cameras, automatic tag readers, and other products. The work includes modifications and additions to the baggage handling system to support a new operation, allowing transborder passengers to check in at three aisles to reduce transfer time and congestion.
“Based on our relationship and past performance at GTAA, we were able to secure this new project,” said Webb president Rob Scmit. “Our baggage handling experts continue to focus on providing dependable and efficient systems that improve the overall travel experience for passengers flying in and out of Toronto.”
Webb is a subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Co., the Japanese material handling company. Daifuku provides baggage handling systems and service at hundreds of global installations. The airport group consists of Jervis B. Webb Co., BCS Group, Daifuku Logan, Logan Teleflex and Elite Line Services.
