Vanderlande has broadened its presence in the North American market by acquiring Canada-based Optosecurity and opening a new facility in the United States.

Its Manufacturing and Distribution Center, combining two pre-existing manufacturing plants in Acworth, Georgia, went fully operational on 19 June 2017.

Vanderlande stated that it invested in the new facility "with a view to reducing lead times and costs for Vanderlande's North American customer base". This includes UPS, FedEx, Amazon, and major hub airports such as Los Angeles, Chicago O'Hare, Vancouver, and Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson.

Products for the airport market made in Acworth include baggage conveyor and sortation equipment, carousels, and the SCANNOJET automated checkpoint solution.

Vanderlande expects demand for SCANNOJET to rise in the United States after its modular Automated Screening Lane (ASL), co-developed with Optosecurity, passed integration assessment tests conducted by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Innovation Task Force.

This paves the way for operational readiness tests of ASL at the 26 busiest airports in the United States (referred to as Category X airports), as the TSA aims to improve throughput rates and reduce waiting times at the checkpoint.

ASL combines the SCANNOJET automated checkpoint with eVelocity remote screening and data integration software from Optosecurity. Andrew Manship, executive vice-president of airports at Vanderlande, said "the Vanderlande and Optosecurity solution delivers proven increases in passenger throughput, enhancements to security and reductions in operational costs at the checkpoint. It will also significantly improve the passenger experience at airports".
