CLOOS becomes a shareholder of MPA

HAIGER/BURBACH, May 2019 – The welding and robot technology manufacturer CLOOS from Haiger has a long-term partnership with the automation specialist MPA Technology from Burbach. After the two companies realised some successful automation projects in welding technology, they now invest in their partnership. Since the middle of May, the Cloos Beteiligungs-GmbH has been the majority shareholder of MPA Technology GmbH.

"On our German core market as well as on the global market, highly automated, complex and intelligent robot systems are in demand. Also in welding technology, the component handling and automated loading and unloading processes gain more and more importance," explains Sieghard Thomas, Managing Director of Carl Cloos Schweisstechnik GmbH. "With MPA we found a reliable partner to usefully complete our product portfolio concerning high-tech welding technologies by further automation modules." MPA offers complete solutions for the automation of different industrial processes – from supply to packaging. The innovative company realises automation projects in all industrial sectors. The team consists of 30 motivated and top qualified employees who actively advance innovations in automation. "Our core competence is in the fields of handling technology, high-speed robots and assembly automation," says Timo Klein, Founder and Managing Director of MPA. "With intelligent controllers, self-learning systems and sophisticated human-machine applications we support our customers on their way to Smart Factory." Even after the equity stake by CLOOS, MPA will continue acting independently. The demand of intelligent production systems with a high degree of automation would be still unbroken. Especially the developments regarding Industry 4.0 would allow a considerably higher degree of automation in the production itself and another optimisation of the entire value-add chain. "Due to this strategic partnership the user benefit from the widely spread welding know-how of CLOOS and from the automation competence of MPA," resumes Thomas.
