Cimcorp has formed a new subsidiary—Cimcorp Iberia, S.L.—based in Madrid to better serve the Spanish market.
“Our decision to expand our presence into Spain was a logical step at this point and supports our growth strategy,” says Tero Peltomäki, executive vice president, operations and technology, Cimcorp. “We have a well-established customer base in Spain and our material handling systems are in high demand there.”
In spring 2019, Cimcorp secured an order worth over 120 million euros to automate the distribution of fresh food at four new distribution centers for the Spanish supermarket chain Mercadona.
“With this being Cimcorp’s largest ever order in the intralogistics market,” explains Peltomäki, “this is the right time to establish a base in Spain, to ensure that we meet the evolving needs of Mercadona and other customers, and that we allocate our resources in the best possible way.” Notably, Cimcorp has previously supplied automation to Mercadona and another Spanish supermarket chain, Eroski, as well as several tire-manufacturing customers in Spain, including Michelin.
Peltomäki adds, “A local presence in Spain will enable Cimcorp to strengthen relationships with our existing customers, as well as to create new partnerships. The central location of our Madrid office and its excellent transport connections to all our customer sites will mean smooth project management and timely response to requests for customer support.”
