President of AHT, LLC
Alternatives Handling Technologies, LLC was founded in 2002 by Bob Hutson in Baltimore, Maryland.
Since graduating from Randallstown Sr. High School in 1974, Bob has more than 30 years of continuous education and experience in many industrial related sales and marketing. Some of these experiences include IMB sales, General motors selling schools, DART applications and sales schools, Remstar application and sales schools, and Rapistam Conveyor School.
As a successful entrepreneur primarily in the material handling field, in the late 80’s, he managed to successfully bring up two high volume full-service stations from bankruptcy and profitably sold them. In the early 90’s, Bob developed, built, and sold a 21,000 Sq. Ft. office Condo Park in Glen Burnie called Oak Park, which today is still thriving. Another success included the development of one of the first successful “How to” video companies in the country called You Auto Know.
Bob spent 17 years as the top sales engineer for one of the most highly recognized material handling companies on the east coast, specializing in ASRS (automated Storage Retrieval Systems).
In 2002, Bob founded Alternative Handling Technologies (AHT) and grew the company from his garage becoming the largest, most successful, and most sophisticated ASRS Integrated/ Distributor in the United States. With its headquarters in Baltimore, MD, AHT has led the country with its unique brand and style.
Over the years AHT has expanded into now 11 states from Maryland to the Gulf Coast of Texas. In 2012 AHT acquired the factory-owned service center based in Cornelius NC which has become the largest Kardex Remstar Service Group dedicated to the support of Kardex Remstar hardware and software.
Since its establishment, AHT has been named the number one Kardex Remstar Integrator/ Distributor in the United States for 7 out of the past 11 years. AHT is the only full-service ASRS dedicated company of its kind in North America offering design, IT support, sales, installation, full warranty and 24/7 support, software packages and integrations.
