Talking of plans for the future, Omron Canada, Inc. opened its new office in Toronto on March 7, 2016, describing the move part of an increased investment and revitalization in Canada and the Americas.

The new office space is located at:

Welcoming members of Annex Business Media, including Canadian Packaging magazine, Omron opened its new offices with speeches from Omron Americas chairman, president and chief executive officer Nigel Blakeway (pictured at top), discussing the future of Omron in Canada—it’s bright, in case you were wondering—as well as the impact of the Omron Delta Tau and Omron Adept acquisitions.


Blakeway indicated that Omron is right on schedule to complete its self-driven growth structure by the end of 2016, but also noted that it has a larger focus for 2020 in both Brazil and Mexico, what he called excellent market opportunities.

Omron recently acquired U.S.-bases motion control company Delta Tau Data Systems of Chatsworth, California with a 100 percent stock purchase, adding to the Omron Group.

Omron looks to reinforce Delta Tau’s technology development and engineering capabilities in motion control for driving manufacturing equipment and will help provide motion control solutions globally through its combined distribution networks.

The 100 percent acquisition of Adept Technology, Inc. of Pleasanton, California points to Omron seeking to expand its role as an automation leader. Adept is a leading global provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile robot solutions and services.

Combined, Adept and Delta Tau will make Omron more of a full robots solution for its customers featuring Parallel, SCARA, and six-axis robots—Blakeway says Omron now has 30 robot solutions for the market now, as well as solutions for robotic controllers.

Blakeway says Omron will continue to strengthen Industry 4.0 as it develops more robotic skills for manufacturing in the Americas.

Omron Automation & Safety president, chief executive officer and chief operating officer Robb Black also discussed the landscape of Omron’s industrial automation branch reiterating that no other company in the industry can offer everything from sensors all the way up to robotics as a one-stop shop.

Black says that Omron will continue to sell bundled solutions for primary and secondary packaging, as well as for those involved in the manufacture of packaging here in Canada, calling the country’s food and beverage market—a growth target market along with the automotive industry and infrastructure.
