TECHNICA SIGN COLLABORATION AGREEMENT WITH YOKOGAWA UK
Technica has signed a collaboration agreement with Yokogawa United Kingdom Limited. The agreement will merge the expertise of Technica and Yokogawa UK to provide a comprehensive range of complementary products, solutions, and services for the industrial automation and control market. Both companies will target added value for their current clients in midstream oil and gas whilst facilitating growth into new industries and market sectors.
Yokogawa delivers advanced solutions in the areas of measurement, control, and information. The collaboration enables the provision of independent product-agnostic solutions by enhancing the traditional system and product supply with an expanded engineering design and CDM service.
The partnership has been established to take projects from the first principles of FEED through detailed design, construction, installation, commissioning, consultancy, and right up to handover and project closeout, providing a complete turnkey solution.
Yokogawa UK’s managing director, Carl Ramsden, commented, “Yokogawa is delighted to announce this agreement with Technica. It really captures our ethos to create value for our customers and society through collaborations and partnerships, as we bring together our unique products and services within a framework of closely aligned and best in class partners”.
Sales director of Yokogawa UK, Trevor Wren, continued, “Our companies have been working successfully together for several years. The formalisation of our partnership takes our commitment to the next level and offers the complete turnkey solution to our customers”.
Chairman of Technica, John Davison, commented, “Part of our business strategy is the development of partnerships and this agreement with Yokogawa UK will allow us to enter into new markets that are currently not open to us. Both of our organisations have complementary skills, and I am confident that together, this collaboration will deliver excellent results for our customers”.
The agreement will run for an initial period of five years. Both organisations have agreed to obtain the ISO44001 standard for collaborative business relationships within the first two years of the collaboration period, overseen through a joint governance board process comprising Yokogawa UK and Technica representatives.
