RMT Robotics has announced it is now Cimcorp Automation, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment and tire handling solutions.
Canadian-based RMT Robotics joined the Cimcorp Group in 2010, extending Finland-based Cimcorp Oy’s reach into North America. Now, the two entities have created a unified front as one brand.
Martti Artama, president, Cimcorp Oy, said, “The union of these brands under a single umbrella signifies a successful execution of product development and brand positioning that has allowed us to offer one suite of solutions across the worldwide distribution landscape. We look forward to increasing the global footprint of the Cimcorp brand and contributing to the North American market.”
The unified Cimcorp is a leading global supplier of order fulfillment and tire handling solutions utilizing robotic gantry technology, and advanced warehouse control and manufacturing execution software. The company’s combined offerings provide automated solutions to the tire, food and beverage, e-commerce, consumer goods and postal services sectors. With more than 300 employees, Cimcorp has delivered 2,000 robotic systems to distribution centers and warehouses across five continents.
Doug Pickard, president, Cimcorp Automation, said, “The future of Cimcorp in North America and around the world is filled with excitement and promise for advancements in robotics. Cimcorp representatives in Finland and Canada will continue to work closely as an integrated company to provide the best automated materials handling solutions to our current and future customers. It is our goal to provide manufacturers and distributors with solutions that will enable them to not only succeed in their respective industries, but establish themselves as true innovation leaders.”
Cimcorp Oy was acquired by Kyoto, Japan-based Murata Machinery, Ltd. (Muratec) in 2014 to provide best-in-class material handling solutions to a global client base. As outlined after the acquisition, both Muratec and Cimcorp—including its North American subsidiary—will continue business operations with no change to their current strategies.
