Newcastle Systems Moves to Larger Location

Newcastle Systems, Inc., a provider of mobile powered industrial carts, has moved from Haverhill to a larger location in Amesbury, MA. The new space includes offices and a 40,000-sq.-ft. warehouse where it manufactures its carts used in various applications by front line workers in manufacturing, retail and shipping and receiving.

According to Christine Wheeler, Newcastle's Vice President of Marketing, "Because of the incredible return on investment as well as the ability to double employee productivity, 80% of Fortune 100 companies have now adopted mobile powered carts into their processes. We needed a larger, more modern space to meet this increased demand for our products."

A privately-owned company, Newcastle Systems has a long history of growth. In 2005, Newcastle began with tinkering in a basement by founder and CEO John O'Kelly, who believed that real-time mobile access to data would make warehouse workers much more efficient. After a year the company became the first in the U.S. to introduce mobile powered industrial carts to support supply chain applications, bringing leading-edge efficiencies to the market. As demand increased for its products, the company moved first to Woburn in 2007, then to a larger location in Middleton in 2010, then again to a yet larger location in Haverhill in 2015. Newcastle has now moved to its largest facility to date located in Amesbury.

The company has continuously pioneered new technology, developing the first swappable lithium battery system for industrial applications in 2016, as well as ergonomic mobile carts. Today, it has 40 employees and serves some of the largest retailers, manufacturers and distributors in the world including Walmart, UPS, DHL, Wayfair, Tesla and Amazon.
