Partnership designed to deliver a new global standard of custom automation services to “help clients grow today and build for tomorrow”
A number of suppliers of custom automated manufacturing equipment have joined forces to launch the Smart Automation Group, a collaborative partnership designed to innovate the custom automation services industry.
The partnership includes Eclipse Automation, Insys Industriesysteme, Transmoduls, SMZ Wickel-und Montagetechnik, Juli Technology, and ITE Automation.
The companies are joining together to share best practices, industry intellectual property, experience, and know-how to provide customers with what they say will be “automation solutions in a way unlike anything on the market today”.
The collective expertise of its member companies will enable Smart Automation Group to produce technologies that are the lynchpins of manufacturing processes across every industry, including automotive, consumer, health sciences, nuclear, electronics, energy, and industrial, to “help clients grow today, and build for tomorrow”, says the group.
Steve Mai, President of Eclipse Automation, says: “Our vision is to collectively disrupt the traditional way of providing custom automation services, putting the customer at the core of everything we do.
“Smart Automation Group’s collaborative approach means we can automate any manufacturing process, and that through a commitment to quality, and operational excellence, there is no challenge we can’t solve for our clients, no matter where they are in the world.”
As part of this new joint venture, each partner is taking a team-oriented approach, significantly increasing the overall capabilities that enhance automation solutions for clients.
Each company will review its own client requests, but if a particular project requires additional capabilities, the collaborative project team can be tapped to bring the best value to the table.
All of this seamlessly takes place in the background, ensuring the client maintains a single point of contact. The result: enhanced value of all automation solutions for customers.
In any given case, one of Smart Automation Group’s partners could be called on to contribute with its global reach, intellectual property, employee know-how, resources, or relationships, all with the sole goal of providing value-added solutions to each project scope.
With offices in Canada, the United States, Hungary, Switzerland, and China, Smart Automation Group works with strategic partners in every region of the world, to provide unique, cost-effective, and scalable solutions through collaboration and shared innovation, with a global support network.
