Carbures Mobility, has just signed a new contract with a global automotive Tier 1 installed in Brazil that covers the South American market. The purpose of this contract, which amounts to 835,000 euros, is the design and manufacture of a palletized test line.
Including Brazil, we are already operating in 11 countries in 3 continents from Automotive, Aerospace & Defense and Civil Works: Germany, France, Poland, Spain, China, Singapore, USA, Mexico, Chile and Turkey.
The experience of Carbures, and its technological leadership worldwide, are the reasons why this global automotive supplier has decided to hire Carbures for the Brazilian market. Both the design and manufacture of the test line will be carried out in Spain in its entirety, after which it will be transferred to the American country.
Carbures keeps accomplishing its business and organic growth plan. The company’s Mobility division, has opened a new plant at Suzhou’s industrial park, in the province of Jiantsu (China), with two strategic goals: to serve its main clients (current and new ones, which are Tier 1 of reference in the automobile sector) locally; as well as to increase the Company’s turnover in the Asian market. With a 900m2 area, the new plant complements the service of its commercial and technical office in Shanghai. Carbures accumulates 57 million euros of total sales in the Asian market since 2005.
Carbures foresees a fast production growth in the new plant of Suzhou, similar to that from its Polish and Mexican plants. In this one, it will make assembly machines for different automobile components related to the navigation, safety, production and other test technologies. The new facilities of Carbures Mobility are part of the international expansion of the Company within the Asian market.
The industrial sector is experiencing a historic moment, and Carbures is in the forefront of that trend. In Industry 4.0, machines, production facilities and warehouse systems are able to exchange information autonomously, track actions and control each other, generating major improvements in the industrial processes involved in production, engineering and service. This fourth industrial revolution promises to unite two worlds, the manufacturing industry and the next generation of Information Technology, creating a new level of efficiency.
As we have been announcing recently from Carbures Machinery, our collaborative robots are already running on plants in the US and Japan, as well as our own R & D developments from Aerospace & Defense, such as the Hiro robot, used in our own factories. The Company continues having Technology at the center of its being, not only in its products, but also in its own management.
