Walter adds to its digital Engineering Kompetenz
With the acquisition of its long-standing software partner Comara GmbH, tooling expert Walter is reinforcing its decision to strive for further growth in the digital sector and build on the company’s Engineering Kompetenz.
Walter AG president, Mirko Merlo states: “This is a key strategic step towards expanding our digital portfolio and further developing our company towards Industry 4.0.”
Acquiring Comara constitutes the next logical step in Walter’s development from product to process partner, he says, and now to digital process partner, too.
The objective is to be able to understand and interpret processes in a holistic way and to develop digital solutions that enable Walter’s customers to boost their productivity and efficiency across the entire process chain, again demonstrating how, together with customers, Walter will always find the best solutions.
Comara will remain an autonomous operation with separate products and its own retail arm.
