Güdel, a manufacturer of linear motion modules, robot track motion units, and gantry robots and components, formed Güdel Americas. This entity brings together the company’s existing entities in the United States and Mexico to better serve customers.
The company said this new alignment, and a new regional strategy for growth, will provide customers in the Americas with improved responsiveness, access to spare parts, and local service and support.
“The integration of our North American entities into Güdel Americas is the beginning of great things as we continue to provide high-quality, innovative solutions in the Americas,” said David Treutle, managing director. “This reorganization will bolster production capacity and reduce lead times.”
Güdel Americas will focus on controls software engineering for the future development of the Güdel Global Controls Center of Excellence. The field service team will continue to provide the same high level of service and installation support it currently delivers while adding greater reach and response times throughout the Americas.
Based in Langenthal, Switzerland, Güdel is part of a family-owned business in its third generation. The company was founded in 1954 and has grown from a single precision machine shop to a global automation solutions business with operations in more than 20 countries.
Güdel is known for manufacturing a full line of linear motion components, which are the building blocks for reliable linear motion modules, gantries, and press automation systems.
