Nov. 8, 2017 – Omron Automation Americas has announced the grand opening of its expanded and relocated Montreal, Que., offices, occupying new offices in a business complex in Dorval.
“Our new offices enhance customer interaction with our latest technologies as they seek solutions to their manufacturing challenges,” said Omron Canada general manager Peter Brouwer. “Now that we operate as a Pan-American business, we are able to provide uniform service and support for our French-speaking customers’ needs.”
The company says the expanded test lab will allow customers to engage in hands-on, proof-of-concept testing of automation solutions, and will be fully outfitted with robots, motion control, machine safety, HMI, vision, sensors and control components that can be tested together, simulating integrated interactions.
The new address is:
1675 Trans-Canada Route, Suite 105
Other recent investments designed to invigorate Omron’s other recent investments include the acquisition of Adept Technology, Delta Tau Data Systems, and Microscan 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, Omron senior managing executive officer & 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. Merging products and technologies of both companies will also enable delivery of optimized motion control solutions globally through combined distribution networks.
The acquisition of Microscan Systems allows Omron to develop new code reading devices and solutions that combine software technology from Microscan with Omron’s control components and equipment lines.
