Nov. 8, 2017 – Unison, a manufacturer of tube bending machines and simulation software, has entered a joint venture with Pneuform Machines, leading to full integration within the Unison family of companies joining Yorkshire CNC and Ingenium Integration.
The parties say the joint venture will strengthen Unison’s portfolio by adding a range of small diameter tube and wire bending machines.
“The partnership will see new product lines added to our product portfolio which already houses the world’s largest range of all electric tube bending machinery and sits alongside our Evbend range of machines,” said Alan Pickering, Unison joint managing director. “Pneuform [is] the perfect fit for Unison, adding a wealth of experience and engineering expertise, given their deep-rooted history. The Pneuform product range fits perfectly into the Unison tube bending range due to their commitment to robust and reliable machinery, delivering high-performance at a cost-effective price.”
“Pneuform [is] excited that the joint venture will enhance the marketing and the technical development of the range of machines it produces,” said Trevor Clark, managing director of Pneuform Machines Limited. “The Pneuform range will be supported jointly by Unison and Pneuform. The joint venture will secure future ongoing support for existing customers and provide confidence that the bending machines will continue to be developed, supported and marketed into the long-term future.”
