RMT Robotics, a Cimcorp Oy company, joined the Muratec Group as part of the acquisition of Cimcorp Oy and its subsidiaries by Kyoto, Japan-based Murata Machinery, Ltd. Together, the companies will provide best-in-class material handling solutions to a global client base. Both Muratec and Cimcorp will continue business operations going forward with no change to their current strategies.

“With this acquisition, both companies will be able to offer customers the systems for which they are already well known, as well as the full advantage of the attractive, complementary systems of both Muratec and Cimcorp,” says Daisuke Murata, president and CEO, Murata Machinery. “From now on, the Muratec-Cimcorp Group can truly be a one-stop-shop. Our promise is to only improve for our customers’ benefit.”

“Starting immediately, both companies will utilize possibilities to enhance service coverage through the networks each company has established globally, targeting best-in-class service performance to our customers,” says Martti Artama, president, Cimcorp Oy.“For the future, we aim to introduce new innovations for various manufacturing and distribution industries by integrating the experience and knowhow that both Muratec and Cimcorp have developed.”

Cimcorp acquired Canada-based RMT Robotics in 2010, adding extensive case picking, automation and robotic capabilities to its portfolio of material handling solutions.

“Together with Muratec, we are convinced we can deliver very compelling offers and high return on our customers’ investments,” says Doug Pickard, president, RMT Robotics. “RMT Robotics is looking forward to the great possibilities that the Muratec-Cimcorp Group can offer our customers both today and into the future.”
