Excel Automation and MacDonald Humfrey (Automation) have created EXMAC Automation, a joint venture that will provide a comprehensive design, build, commissioning and installation service for major turnkey conveying and materials handling projects around the world. The two companies have already worked together on previous projects for a variety of industries.
Commenting for the new joint venture, directors Gary Sweeny and Mick MacDonald say the combination of Excel’s extensive experience in conveying and materials handling systems and MacDonald Humfrey’s position as a leading supplier of automation and control solutions, has already enabled EXMAC to successfully tender against major international competition.
Says Gary Sweeny: “We are delighted to announce that EXMAC has been awarded a multi-phase turnkey contract to design and install flow-line assembly systems for Rolls Royce engine facilities in Derby and Singapore.” He adds that pre-qualification documents have also been issued for other major contracts in the UK and overseas.
Emphasising the combined strengths of the joint venture, Mick MacDonald says both companies are well established and profitable British businesses with world-class manufacturing facilities and combined resources including over 300 experienced staff. The potential for the joint venture should also ensure stability and job security for employees of both companies.
