Effective from 29 Jun 2023, IMA Schelling is taking over the specialist companies Carmet Automazioni and Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology, enabling the company to offer its customers a broader range of automation, handling and transport solutions.

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, complements the IMA Schelling portfolio, according to IMA Schelling.

Carmet Automazioni will continue to operate under its established name and Carmet will also continue as the brand name, although the company will officially be under the IMA Schelling name.

Previously operating as a business unit of the international Blumenbecker Group, Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology, based in Katowice, Poland, specialises in consulting, project planning, design, software development, system integration and switchgear construction.

The company has established itself as a specialist in automation and robotics solutions in Poland, and with a partly identical customer base as IMA Schelling, Blumenbecker complements with IMA Schelling’s product portfolio as well.

Likewise with Carmet, Blumenbecker Engineering System Technology will remain an independent company, but will operate under the name IMA Schelling Polska Automation in the future.

“With the acquisition of both highly specialised 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,” explained 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.”
