MISSISSAUGA — Schneider Electric Canada, a company involved in energy management and automation, announced a new partnership with OptiMach, a Quebec-based robotics company. The partnership will support both organizations in expanding their operational commitments, enabling OptiMach to provide customers with automated and robotic solutions tailored to their exact needs. The partnership will serve small to large manufacturing industries across the Quebec and north New Brunswick markets, with a focus on food processing, wood mill production and transformation, packaging and custom-made solutions.

“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 OEM Sales, Schneider Electric Canada. “We’re honoured to partner with OptiMach, an industry leader in Quebec and New Brunswick, to further support this growing market. This partnership is a natural fit and will allow Schneider Electric to expand our presence in these markets, as well as support OptiMach in providing its customers with industry-leading products and superior customer service.”

OptiMach utilizes robotics and technology to advance efficiency in manufacturing, transformation and production sectors. Leveraging robotics along with digital technology means a higher quality of outputs, increased efficiency, and a better bottom line. In the era of COVID-19, robotics and digitalization promise a seamless transition to more contact-less interactions in factory settings. By partnering with Schneider Electric, OptiMach hopes to increase its reach and market share and provide industry insight to its customers.

“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 breakdown the common misconceptions surrounding robotized solutions and help more businesses across Canada improve their operations.”
