Sovex, the United Kingdom-based materials handling specialist, is throwing its weight behind Praguna initiative which has launched a training base this year, in Dharuhera, Haryana.

"Sovex is thrilled to be involved in the Praguna initiative," said Rachel Price, Business Develoment and Marketing Manager at Sovex. "This exciting international project will help create high performance supply chains across India's logistics sector. It will deliver training in a 25,000 square foot facility in specialist roles that drive higher productivity, increased service levels and safety, better product quality, cost reduction and lower maintenance and lifecycle cost for machinery."

Industry partners from across the world have supported the Praguna initiative whole heartedly and now Sovex is also joining this team to support ThinkLink.

Speaking on the occasion, Saurabh Goyal, Managing Director of ThinkLink, said, "We are excited to be working with Sovex in building up the Praguna initiative as a cross-industry platform for supply chain development. Sovex is a great partner and the Bendy Boom is an excellent innovation in the logistics industry, especially given the growth of parcel handling on the back of e-commerce. We hope to continue to build Praguna into a destination for vocational skills in logistics, as also an experience centre for Logistics and Material Handling design and innovation."

Sovex has supplied a compact version of its award-winning Bendy Boom conveyor. It has been installed permanently at the Praguna site and will provide a world-class product to support various forms of training.

The Bendy Boom is one of Sovex's flagship products offering extreme flexibility. Its front extending section can bend to -25 degrees offering height adjustment, with an extendable length of 12 metres, making it suitable for loading vans, lorries and containers up to 45 foot. It also retracts into its casing saving space and time.

The news comes after successful participation by ThinkLink and Sovex at the India Warehousing show from July 1st to July 3rd at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. More than 300 visitors from industry visited the ThinkLink booth and learnt about the automation solutions and vocational skills offerings.
