RMT Robotics Ltd., Grimsby, Ontario, is now Cimcorp Automation Ltd. The company joined the Cimcorp Group in 2010, extending Finland-based Cimcorp Oy’s reach into North America. The two entities now 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 the Cimcorp brand and contributing to the North American market.”

Cimcorp is a global supplier of order-fulfillment and tire-handling solutions using robotic gantry technology and advanced warehouse control and manufacturing execution software. The company’s combined offerings provide automated solutions to a variety of sectors, including food, beverage and consumer goods.

“The future of Cimcorp in North America and around the world is filled with excitement and promise for advancements in robotics,” says 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 material-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.”

Going forward, Cimcorp will use its combined resources, drawing on each entity’s individual strengths, to ramp up collaborative R&D initiatives and continue software development that furthers innovation. Through flexible, data-driven solutions, the company will work to improve energy and operational efficiencies, productivity, speed and capabilities of its solutions. As a global entity, Cimcorp will create standardization across its systems that ensure compliance with global standards and regulations, while accommodating the intricacies of various local markets.
