Wedded bliss

Martti Artama, President, Cimcorp Oy

On 30 October 2014, Cimcorp had the great pleasure of welcoming Daisuke Murata, President and CEO of Murata Machinery Ltd (Muratec), from Kyoto, Japan, as he announced the acquisition of the Cimcorp Group. Mr Murata and his team were greeted with spontaneous applause by Cimcorp’s personnel, expressing how we feel about the latest development in the group.

For us and our clients, this change means that the two companies will together provide best-in-class material handling solutions to a global customer base. Cimcorp’s clients will be offered the same well-designed and innovative automation systems for which we are already well known, as well as the full advantage of dynamic solutions featuring the complementary systems of both Muratec and Cimcorp.

The development also means that both companies will utilize the potential to enhance service coverage through the networks each company has established globally, targeting best-in-class service performance for our customers. For the future, we aim to introduce new innovations for various manufacturing and distribution industries by integrating the experience and know-how that both Muratec and Cimcorp have developed.

What does not change is the fact that both Muratec and Cimcorp will continue business operations going forward, with no change to their current strategies.

In addition, the integration of Finland-based Cimcorp Oy and Canada-based RMT Robotics – acquired by Cimcorp in 2010 – will soon take a visible step forward. Effective from 1 January 2015, RMT Robotics will become Cimcorp Automation Ltd. It will mean deeper co-operation in R&D and continued software development within the Cimcorp Group.

With these two happy marriages, the Muratec-Cimcorp Group can truly be a one-stop-shop. Our promise is to focus solely on improving our offer for the benefit of our customers.
