Shape Technologies Group of Companies (SHAPE), have recently completed the acquisition of Sweden based robotic and custom automation integrator Evomatic AB in Karlshamn. Evomatic will join Shape Process Automation Group (SPA), which has a global presence in automation solutions with highly differentiated capabilities in high speed, path intensive, trimming applications and custom flexible automation systems.
This strategic acquisition allows for two like-minded strong entrepreneurial driven companies to join forces while continuing to offer specialized cutting process technology and customized robotic automation solutions that streamline production in industries such as Automotive, Food & Beverage, Consumer Goods and Life Science.
Evomatic AB was founded in Karlshamn, Sweden in 1998 by current CEO Jonas Persson, who has led the organization through tremendous growth. ”With facilities in Karlshamn and Lidköping, Sweden, this acquisition will support SPA’s strategic plan in targeting growth in sectors outside of Automotive in the Europe markets,” said Nino LaDuca, President of Shape Process Automation Group.
The SPA presence in Europe with current locations in Ronneby and Lille, France will now strengthen as we welcome Evomatic’s dedicated and ambitious team members to SPA.
”Our companies combined have deployed close to 4,000 robots to factories based in Europe. We are now broadening through this acquisition and our companies will benefit from each other’s knowledge and experience in our different markets. We will strengthen our European presence in providing automated solutions”, says Per Josefsson, Managing Director of SHAPE Technologies Europe.
”We see several benefits in meeting the challenges of the future together. We will be an even larger industrial company with twice as many employees with unique skills. In addition, Evomatic will become part of Shape Technologies Group’s worldwide network, which is very exciting”, says Jonas Persson, current CEO and owner of Evomatic.
