Madrid – Logistics automation specialist, Cimcorp, has established an office in Spain in response to growing interest in its robotic automation solutions.
Based in Madrid, Cimcorp Iberia SL will be headed by Jarkko Hakkarainen, who is bringing 20 years of international experience with him, said the Ulvila, Finland-based company in a statement 28 Jan.
“Our decision to expand our presence into Spain was a logical step at this point… and supports our growth strategy,” said Tero Peltomäki, Cimcorp’s executive vice president, operations and technology.
According to Peltomäki, Cimcorp has a “well-established” customer base in Spain and its material handling systems are “in high demand” in the country.
In spring 2019, Cimcorp secured an order worth over €120m to automate the distribution of fresh food at four new distribution centres for the Spanish supermarket chain, Mercadona.
In addition, the company has also supplied solutions to several of its tire-manufacturing customers in Spain, including Michelin, Peltomäki noted.
With local presence in Spain, Cimcopr expects to deliver “smooth project management and timely response” to existing customers while creating new partnerships.
