“In Industry 4.0 – the fourth industrial revolution – intelligent automation systems have become increasingly important to make processes more efficient, and not least, in order to document the environmental benefits of the solutions”, says Robert Wasler, CEO of Controlpartner AS.
In Vow Automation, Vow and Controlpartner will rapidly build a technology hub with expertise adapted to Vow's needs. The collaboration will give Vow control of technology and further its competitive advantages. In addition, a program for productization is expected to enable large cost savings in the production.
