Schneider Electric Canada announced that it is entering into a partnership with Quebec-based robotics company OptiMach. The partnership will offer both organizations the support to expand their operational commitments. OptiMach is now gaining the ability to cater to its customers’ exact needs for automation and robotics solutions.
Through this partnership, both companies intend to reach small to large manufacturing industries across Quebec and north New Brunswick.
“Schneider Electric is committed to creating a more sustainable future and industrial automation plays a key role in enabling that transformation,” says Luc Chagnon, national director of OEM sales at Schneider Electric Canada. “We’re honoured to partner with OptiMach, an industry leader in Quebec and New Brunswick, to further support this growing market.”
OptiMach uses robotics and technology to drive efficiency in the manufacturing, transformation and production sectors. Leveraging robotics along with digital technology leads to a higher quality of outputs, increased efficiency and a better bottom line. Robotics and digitalization pave the path to transition to more contactless interactions in factory settings.
“We’re excited about this promising partnership, as it means a great deal for technological expansion and innovation within Canada and Quebec,” says Francis Pelletier, OptiMach President. “We needed a partner whose solutions would integrate seamlessly within our existing portfolio, and Schneider Electric fit the bill. Schneider’s proven experience and network is invaluable as we look to break down the common misconceptions surrounding robotized solutions and help more businesses across Canada improve their operations.”
As part of this partnership, Schneider Electric will provide a range of solutions to OptiMach, such as motion, robots, automation, control and advisor software.
