In a year where your agenda could easily be filled with tradeshow visits, the PRODEX exhibition is one of the last exhibitions that cannot be ignored.  This year will mark the seventh edition of Switzerland’s largest event in the manufacturing industry. From 18 to 21 November 2014, visitors can learn all about machine tools, tools and production measurement. For the very first time, RoboJob will also be present at PRODEX. The Belgian specialist will be announcing an exclusive cooperation agreement with Suhner Automation.

Suhner Automation is a Swiss company, specialized in finding economical, low-cost manufacturing solutions. It is recognized as a leader in the field of machining units for drilling, milling and tapping operations. Based in Brugg, between Bazel and Zürich, it is part of the Suhner Group of companies, which has developed ideas and solutions to create state-of-the-art industrial products and manufacturing processes. The Suhner Group was established exactly 100 years ago, and includes business units specialized in surface machining, tools, transmissions, stamping, production, aviation, cutting and automation.

Jürg Beutler, Managing Director of Suhner Automation AG, is thrilled to be adding the RoboJob standard automation products to the portfolio of Suhner Automation: “The Otto Suhner Group is an organization that has existed for exactly 100 years now, with locations spread over the entire globe. We are specialists in different market segments, where our main focus was and still is on innovation. Suhner Automation AG was founded with the focus on integrated solutions for machinery. So we know very well that flexibility is the key word to success in this market. When we came across the RoboJob products, we were astonished with their flexibility and ease of use. Their products will bring a great advantage to our portfolio. That’s why we asked RoboJob to set up a collaboration. The transparent company structure and focus on innovation is perfectly in line with our vision at Suhner Automation AG. We are convinced that we can live up to the high quality of their products here in our own market and deliver an innovative product to the metalworking industry that will increase productivity and flexibility.”

RoboJob co-founder and CEO Helmut De Roovere is excited to be adding Suhner and Switzerland to the growing list of partners and countries where the RoboJob products are successfully being implemented: “This year has proven a significant step forward for RoboJob. We have established partnership co-operations in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Germany, Austria and now also Switzerland. The list of partners is starting to look impressive, since each and every one of them has built an excellent reputation in its respective market, and they all share our philosophy. Suhner is no exception”, De Roovere explains. “It is part of a larger group, which has been around for 100 years! Suhner also focuses on the customer and wants to offer smart but user-friendly customer solutions. I am convinced they will prove to be an excellent partner not only for RoboJob, but especially for manufacturing companies in Switzerland.”

At the PRODEX exhibition, the new co-operation agreement is officially announced by both partners. Suhner Automation will also be demonstrating the RoboJob Turn-Assist 250 with the Axis Extension. Suhner Automation and RoboJob can be visited at the PRODAX exhibition from 18 to 21 November 2014 at booth L11 in Hall 1.1.
