JMP Solutions, industrial technology provider to Fortune 1000 companies, has acquired the assets of Alfacon Solutions, a 35-year-old custom material handling solution provider based in Milton, Ontario.
The employees of Alfacon now form JMP’s material handling division and the company says it is “excited about the value this will bring to their customers”.
Scott Shawyer, JMP president and CEO, says: “We are very happy the Alfacon team has decided to join us at JMP. Their capabilities are world class and allow us to provide our customers with very high quality, made-in-North-America advanced material handling solutions.
“Their customers will now be able to draw on the full-service offering of JMP. Additionally, they are a great complement to our robotic, AGV, control systems, and MES divisions, giving us even more application bench strength and the ability to vertically integrate our offerings.
“Therefore, our projects have better quality, we deploy faster while reducing costs and risks for our customers.”
JMP Solutions will be augmenting the team from Alfacon with their proven project execution framework, project management resources, and control system design and implementation expertise.
John Murdoch, former CEO of Alfacon, and now Managing Director of JMP’s material handling division, says: “I could not be more thrilled to have our team become part of JMP Solutions.
“We can now offer our customers improved execution capabilities, long-term stability, broader turn-key solutions, more control system flexibility, better system-wide implementation, coupled with world-class project management capabilities to reduce project risk and improve returns for our customers.”
