Production digitization: Leadec strengthens its position with AVI GmbH
Stuttgart/Hoyerswerda, 11/5/20 - Automation and industrial IT are the key activities of AVI GmbH, which Leadec acquired effective November 1, 2020. With this acquisition, Leadec further expands its Automation & Engineering Division to offer its customers solutions for controlling and integrating production processes from a single source and to accompany them on their way to Industry 4.0.
“Making the factory of today ready for the production of tomorrow: digitized, networked and efficient – this is the challenge many manufacturing companies are facing. At the same time, the data volume of modern industrial facilities is growing continuously because of the Internet of Things (IoT) and companies require smart solutions to utilize this data. With AVI GmbH, we therefore strengthen our position in a sector that is very important for the future,” says Dr. Achim Agostini, Executive President of the Automation & Engineering Division at Leadec.
“We at AVI have focused on “automation full of ideas” for over 25 years, we are rooted in the region and work worldwide. Both our services and our corporate culture are an excellent fit for Leadec. As part of a global group, we can use our shared expertise to better support our customers in digitizing their production processes and making them efficient,” Mirko Wittek and Frank Seifert, Managing Directors of AVI, agree.
“Leadec offers its customers an integral digitization concept throughout the entire factory life cycle. By acquiring AVI GmbH, we are consistently pursuing our growth strategy in the Automation & Engineering Division and expanding our Industry 4.0 expertise,” adds Markus Glaser-Gallion, CEO of the Leadec Group.
AVI GmbH specializes in planning individual control and automation solutions. The company has in-depth know-how in instrumentation and control, automation as well as production IT. Since 1992 operators of complex industrial facilities or infrastructure supply systems have relied on the competence of the more than 50 employees. In addition, AVI provides machine and plant manufacturers with turnkey solutions that match the technical challenge.
With the TERANiS, [LuQ2] and [LuQ2]machine tools developed by AVI, automated manufacturing processes can be planned, controlled, visualized and monitored. They perfectly complement the solutions developed by Leadec Automation & Engineering such as jitCATS for production control. Other focus areas are process planning, simulations and project management as well as production optimization services.
