Company History Although the name is new, Adaptec Solutions has a rich history that dates back to the first automated palletizer manufactured by Lambert Material Handling in 1948. Bob Manion, currently Executive Vice President of Business Development at Adaptec, purchased Lambert Material Handling in 2007. Manion went on to purchase Aloi Materials Handling with fellow RIT graduate, Jeff Gambrill, in 2008. Following two small acquisitions in 2009, Manion and Gambrill decided to merge Aloi and Lambert into a single company. Aloi partnered with Wincove Private Holdings in 2016, and in 2018, appointed president and CEO, Andrew Creathorn. Aloi completed its first significant acquisition of Automated Cells & Equipment (ACE) in 2019.
