Siemens has won a contract worth 80 million Euros from the United States Postal Service (USPS, Washington DC) to further upgrade their letter sorting machines.

Siemens Dematic will design, manufacture and install special ventilation and filtration systems (VFS) on their letter sorting machines for the USPS, reducing workers’ exposure to potentially hazardous airborne particulates on in-bound mail-processing operations.

The contract awarded to Siemens Dematic is part of a larger, on-going USPS program to minimise health threats to employees and the public should events similar to the 2001 anthrax attacks occur in the future.

Siemens Dematic’s unit in Arlington/Texas, USA will carry out the order.Beginning in spring 2004, the new systems will be installed in 280 mail centres across the entire USA.
