Aarhus, Denmark: April 13, 2007-- FKI Logistex® (www.fkilogistex.com), a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, announces the award of a major contract from the Odense Central Library (www.odensebib.dk) in Denmark for a fully automated item handling and sorting system. The Odense Library selected FKI Logistex for its industry-leading solutions, which will allow the library to reduce waiting lines and manual item handling by streamlining and extending its self-service and automated sortation capabilities.

One of Denmark's largest public libraries, the Odense Central Library operates nine city-based branches and one mobile unit. The cost-effective FKI Logistex solution addresses the library's efficiency goals, which include replacing its existing security gates and automating at least 90 percent of all lending and returning activities.

The Odense Central Library contract is one of many recent high-profile wins by the FKI Logistex Library Solutions Division. The Odense contract covers installation of FKI Logistex Library Mate automated check-in and checkout self-service kiosks and an FKI Logistex Compact Sorter. It also includes FKI Logistex Ergo Cart ergonomic book carts and volume containers. The integrated system will handle and sort a wide range of library materials, from books to CDs, DVDs and magazines.

"When compared to other solutions in the market, the FKI Logistex Compact Sorter and the company's other library technologies are very convincing," says Lene Nielsen, administration manager, Odense Central Library. "In particular, we were impressed by the high capacity and tremendous flexibility offered by the company's solutions and its excellent service agreement."
