RMT Robotics, Ltd., Canada, officially changed its name to Cimcorp Automation Ltd., a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment and tire handling solutions. 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 in order to drive innovation in R&D and product development, and offer a comprehensive material handling and automation solutions portfolio.

“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,” says Martti Artama, president, Cimcorp Oy.“We look forward to increasing the global footprint of theCimcorp brand and contributing to the North American market.”

“The future of Cimcorp in North America and around the world is filled with excitement and promise for advancements in robotics,” adds Doug Pickard, president, Cimcorp Automation Ltd.“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 [also] establish themselves as true innovation leaders.”

Cimcorp Oy was acquired by Kyoto, Japan-based Murata Machinery, Ltd. 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 current strategies.
