About the Acquisition

Effective March 2017, RMH Systems, a Midwest-based  industrial systems integrator and material handling equipment distributor, has completed its acquisition of Skarnes, Inc., a Twin Cities material handling distributor since 1923.

“The combination of these two companies creates a premier organization with a unique team of experts and an enhanced focus on innovating customized, material handling solutions to meet the ever-increasing demand for our customers,” said Tom Howard, president of RMH Systems.

“The resulting company will have broader customer reach, increased diversity across end markets, technologies and geographies.”

For more than 80 years, RMH Systems has been creating turn-key solutions for our customers. We engineer and program optimal workspaces and workflows that help you work better, safer and more efficiently. Our sales, engineers and automation experts specialize in material handling, packaging, robotics, and industrial scales. We also have the largest service department in the Midwest.
