Home Engineering Automation & Control ABBsolutely big boost for Gqeberha machine builder

GQEBERHA-based machine builder and systems integrator MSG Systems has been officially appointed as a value provider for ABB Robotic Systems.

The ABB value provider programme is a global channel partner programme for system integrators. Authorised members of the programme are called ABB value providers.

Linda Eales, who leads the robotics division for ABB’s SubSaharan Africa region, said the company had worked with MSG Systems for more than 20 years and they had several successful projects and technology exchanges between them.

“This forms part of a strategic drive to strengthen our brand and work closely with our customers and integrators,” she said.

The authorisation programme is a procedure to guarantee that the services the customer receives from the ABB value providers are on the same leading level as the quality of the ABB products, both globally and locally.

MSG Systems owner and founder Mark Gaskin said he was proud to receive the recognition from ABB Robotic Systems. “Our employees and partners are key to our business and make it possible for us to be a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of robotic-based turnkey machinery.”

MSG Systems employs 110 people through its various entities and subsidiary automotive design company, MSGN, in India. It is a local and international supplier of predominantly automotive and food and beverage specialist manufacturing equipment.

ABB Robotic Systems employs about 105,000 employees in more than 100 countries. One of its focus areas is the increased collaboration between robots and humans to reduce workplace injuries.
