October 29, 2015 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Oct. 29, 2015 – Omron Automation and Safety will have new Canadian headquarters as of November 16, 2015. The company will operate out of new offices in Consilium Place, a Toronto East business complex, with facilities that “better reflect how Omron does business in the 21st century,” says company officials.
“Our old building was designed for the way Omron did business in the 1990s, with full warehouse and office space for a large marketing and support staff,” said general manager Peter Brouwer. “Now that we operate as a Pan-American business, we needed to consolidate certain business functions to provide uniform service and support to meet customer needs.”
The new address is:
100 Consilium Place, Suite 802
Scarborough, ON M1H 3E3
In anticipation of the move, Omron moved its warehouse services to KWE – Kintetsu World Express (Canada) to integrate import and export activities with order handling in an effort to shorten delivery time and improve customer responsiveness.
Other new investments designed to invigorate Omron’s business in Canada and the Americas include the acquisition of Adept Technology and Delta Tau Data Systems. “The acquisition of Adept Technology is intended to integrate Omron’s strength of ‘Input, Logic, Output and Safety’ and Adept’s competence in ‘R’ (Robotics) to generate unique automation solutions for global manufacturers,” said Yutaka Miyanaga, senior managing executive officer and IAB company president. “By adding Adept intelligent industrial robots to our automation portfolio, we are able to offer differentiated solutions that provide our customers with a competitive advantage.”
Through the acquisition of Delta Tau Data Systems, Omron aims to reinforce its technology development and engineering capabilities in the field of motion control designed to drive manufacturing equipment.
