MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – Schneider Electric Canada announced a new partnership with OptiMach, a Quebec-based robotics company, to develop robotic solutions for a variety of industries, including wood products, food processing, and packaging.

Schneider Electric will supply OptiMach with a range of products, including robots, motion, automation, control, and advisor software.
“Schneider Electric is committed to creating a more sustainable future, and industrial automation plays a key role in enabling that transformation,” said Luc Chagnon, national director of OEM sales of Schneider Electric. “This partnership is a natural fit and will allow Schneider Electric to expand our presence in these markets, as well as support OptiMach in providing its customers with industry-leading products and superior customer service.”

“We’re excited about this promising partnership, as it means a great deal for technological expansion and innovation within Canada and Quebec,” said Francis Pelletier, OptiMach President. “We needed a partner whose solutions would integrate seamlessly within our existing portfolio, and Schneider Electric fits the bill. Schneider’s proven experience and network is invaluable as we look to break down the common misconceptions surrounding robotized solutions and help more businesses across Canada improve their operations.”
