IMA Schelling has made a name for itself as a specialist in machine and plant manufacturing for the woodworking, plastics and metalworking industries. The company's automation and handling solutions as well as its technologies for batch size 1 processing are valued worldwide. With the acquisition of an Italian and a Polish specialist company, the IMA Schelling Group is now adding even more to this range for its customers. The company is continuing to strengthen its strategic goal of becoming the number one contact for automation solutions in the furniture industry.

Carmet Automazioni SRL

Carmet Automazioni, from the north Italian town of Treviso, has been developing, producing and distributing technologies for industrial automation and handling for over 50 years. The company's range of products, for example, for cutting with a multi-blade saw, perfectly complements the IMA Schelling portfolio. The company with its talented team of 30 is now part of the IMA Schelling Group, but will continue to operate under its established name and Carmet will also continue as the brand name.

Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology

Previously operating as a business unit of the international Blumenbecker Group, Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology, based in Katowice, Poland, specializes in consulting, project planning, design, software development, system integration and switchgear construction. The company has established itself as a leading expert in automation and robotics solutions in Poland and has a remarkable record in terms of product innovation and customer satisfaction. Plus, thanks to a partly identical customer base, it harmonizes perfectly with IMA Schelling. Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology, with its team of around 60 employees, remains an independent company and will operate under the name IMA Schelling Polska Automation in the future.

Yardstick: customer benefit

"With the acquisition of both highly specialized providers, we are continuing the development that began in 2016 with the merger of IMA Klessmann and Schelling Anlagenbau to form the IMA Schelling Group," explains Managing Director Maximilian Lehner. "The yardstick for our strategic decisions is always the benefit we can offer our customers. And we are looking forward to now being able to provide our customers with an even wider product range and even more in-depth knowledge with our new partners."
