The project was created with the aim of providing added value to the production processes of ULMA Handling Systems, reducing production costs and increasing profitability ratios.

At ULMA we are constantly evolving and anticipating logistics systems of the future.

We protect people and look after our environment as part of our responsiblity as a cooperative.


At ULMA we want to contribute to creating a more prosperous, fairer and healthier society for both current generations and future ones.

Our human capital is our greatest asset and its health and safety, our priority concern.

We combine our efforts to improve the working environment, focusing on such sensitive issues as health and physical integrity of persons.


The basis of our corporate strategy is to create a balance between economic success and social wellbeing in a manner compatible with environmental sustainability.

To do this, we conduct proactive management that allows the integration of environmental criteria in the design and implementation phases of the project throughout its lifecycle.

We design equipment with recyclable materials that have a high percentage of recovery, use fuel-efficient motors, energy efficient systems and energy regeneration systems.
