Mikron acquires automation specialist in Singapore
Well positioned in Southeast Asia
Integral Systems has put down firm roots in its local market and has made a success of serving international clients in Southeast Asia, China and the US. In Singapore, Integral Systems has been manufacturing custom-built automation equipment for clients including the automotive and electronics industries since 1997. The company employs 35 people.
After the acquisition is completed, the Mikron Technology Group will be represented in Asia through its own subsidiary. Within the framework of close cooperation, the Mikron Assembly Technology division especially stands to gain from collaboration with local representatives in Asia. Immediate focus will be on building up support services for customers in this region. The range of activities offered by Integral Systems are also a good match for Mikron's assembly automation business, rounding out the current portfolio of services in this area. Mikron is confident of gaining access to new market segments through the acquisition.

Mikron develops highly productive machining and assembly solutions, as well as challenging automation solutions, for clients drawn primarily from the automotive, medical technology, electrical/electronic and writing instrument industries. The Mikron Group comprises the Mikron Machining Technology and Mikron Assembly Technology divisions, as well as Integral Systems in Singapore.
