BURLINGTON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 29, 2019 / Memex Inc. (“MEMEX” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:OEE) a leader in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) manufacturing productivity software, announces a follow-on Purchase Order from Primetals Technologies, a steel industry joint-venture between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Siemens. The follow-on order is for a full plant roll-out of MERLIN Tempus Enterprise Edition at the company’s Sutton, MA facility over the next two years. Primetals Technologies has several additional plants, which may also see future MERLIN deployment after success with the current project. Primetals Technologies has been a customer of MEMEX since deploying its MERLIN DNC software back in 2017.
“We’re very pleased to expand our relationship with Primetals Technologies, a global provider of technology and services for the metals industry,” said David McPhail, CEO & President, MEMEX Inc. “Digital transformation of the steel industry (and manufacturing in general) is trending upwards as interest continues to grow for IIoT-centric, data-driven manufacturing solutions. We saw evidence of this in the record bookings we announced along with our third quarter financial results. MEMEX’s MERLIN Tempus has clearly demonstrated the ability to scale and uncover costly inefficiencies with both small and large manufacturers, and we look forward to demonstrating MERLIN’s expanded features not just to Primetals Technologies but to all of our valued customers and prospects.”
“Primetals Technologies is investing in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Sutton, MA, that will incorporate the latest in advanced technology including Industry 4.0 software and hardware tools from MEMEX,” said Bill Wheeler, Director of Operations. “We had a great experience when we initially adopted MEMEX’s MERLIN DNC software, which made choosing their IIoT product an easy decision for this expansion.”
