Automation & Installation

IMI – A Global People Company is your partner for installation services within the Material Handling/Supply Chain Industry.

With over 20 years of direct experience in the space, IMI has established itself as the largest mechanical installation company globally.

Our technicians are skilled, well paid and have long tenures of quality output with the organization: we pay attention to the value that you bring to your clients by focusing on the people that drive success.

From millwrights and welders to commissioning techs and software programmers, IMI’s employees can help your company complete large scale installs throughout North America in a short amount of time.

Concerned about cost or certain usage models? Whether you require temporary laborers to complete a conveyor bed setup or a custom, dedicated team of high level commissioning techs for your new sensor equipment IMI has you covered.

The Technology

Technology excites us. Having your product in house with our engineers offers a unique type of exposure to other components that IMI can incorporate with other projects: essentially building a platform of solutions. This creates new opportunities for our partners while we execute on installations for you throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.

Our philosophy is to remain a completely vendor agnostic service partner to the industry. We also firmly believe that partnerships should be mutually beneficial and transparent, therefore we are conscious of who we align with.

At IMI, our talent and skillsets are focused in the following areas:

  • Dimensioning systems
  • Racking Systems
  • Small sorters
  • AS/RS
  • IIoT Solutions
  • Weight Scales
  • Conveyor Systems (Pallet, Package, Speciality, etc.)
  • Bar code scanners
  • Robotics (fixed arm, mobile platform, etc.)
  • AGVs

If you have the need for installation help or complete project ownership from a trusted partner, we’d like to hear from you.

Training Centre

We believe in our people. In this industry, retention remains a challenge when skillsets are in high demand and the amount of qualified individuals are few.

Instead of poaching resources or exploiting short term solutions, IMI has created a functional training center where we continually update our techs’ capabilities.

We conduct quality training programs to better understand the application of your product as well as its’ functionality. Give us a call today to discuss your needs.

Why Work With Us?

IMI is not a body shop. We don’t adhere to traditional staffing practices that treat employees (and clients) like a number, easily discarded when a project is complete.

Our engagement goes beyond the technicians in the field. Our approach is consultative and in depth, even before we draft our first SOW together: IMI is hands on with the inception of a new project.

Sitting at the table with you to help develop a service plan for your client is incredibly important for strong execution when our techs are deployed. We firmly believe in communication, transparency and quality at every step of the way.
