Yaskawa to celebrate 100th anniversary while expanding into renewable energy and marine with The Switch technology
Yaskawa Electric Corporation is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The company is arranging special events worldwide to mark this special milestone. In Finland, Yaskawa will be participating in the Technologia 2015 exhibition in Helsinki, Finland, together with its Finnish subsidiary, The Switch, which it acquired last year.
“Although the name Yaskawa may not be familiar to consumers, they are daily users of products whose production processes rely heavily on Yaskawa products. For example, our robots are used extensively throughout the different phases of car manufacturing as well as in many kinds of materials handling and packaging operations in countless industrial sectors around the world,” explains Nina Lehtinen, CEO of Yaskawa Finland Oy.
