About Us

Advanced Storage & Retrieval Systems was founded in 2001 by owner and principal Jack Chynoweth.  With a comprehensive background in helping customers streamline their operations through vertical lift modules and carousels as a regional sales manager for Kardex Remstar in Texas and the Southwest.  After relocating to Marietta, GA near Atlanta in 1994 he became regional sales manager for the Southeast territory.   

In 2012, ASRS began handling the Hänel Storage Systems line of innovative, high-quality automated vertical life systems and storage carousels.  Since that time, ASRS has continued to broaden its ability to upgrade the material handling and storage function and support the systems integration needs of customers in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Carolinas and central to northern Florida.   

With long-term experience in improving the productivity and business profitability of its clients, ASRS has gained expertise in the specific requirements of a diverse range of industries including: 

  • Aviation/Aerospace 
  • Automotive manufacturers and their Tier One and Two suppliers 
  • Car and truck dealerships 
  • Medical and electronics equipment manufacturers 
  • Hospitals and Medical Centers 
  • Manufacturers of parts for electrical power generation plants, industrial motors and drives and pumps for applications among others 
  • Warehouses/Distribution Centers 

This in-depth market knowledge is applied to assisting companies in evaluating upgrades to existing systems and completely new installations. 

How we work 

At his initial meeting with customers, Jack will conduct a comprehensive review of the existing storage/retrieval operations during a facility tour.  A variety of advanced solutions will be discussed with the client based on their automation requirements.  Recommendations will be made that are tailored to specific objectives, budget and timeline.  Throughout this process, options will be presented regarding materials handling systems as well as auxiliary products such as safety guards, enclosures, partitions, and more.   

A written proposal will then be prepared and submitted for client review, input and approval. 

When the ASRS system is delivered, installation will be completed by factory trained, experienced technicians.  On-site training is provided to ensure smooth transition to the new material handling function.  Equipment relocation within a plant or a region is also available from ASRS based on its access to a group of trained personnel. 

Follow-up preventative maintenance visits are also handled by experienced personnel according to the Hänel-designated scheduleFor emergency repair situations, a technician is available on call 24/7.  Jack is also available to customers during each phase of these operations to ensure a client’s complete satisfaction.
