Sapotech and Vesuvius digitalise metals industry
Finnish metals industry solutions provider Sapotech and global metal flow engineering company Vesuvius have entered into a strategic and commercial co-operation that promises big changes for the global metals industry.
The co-operation has seen Vesuvius take a strategic stake in Sapotech, who has developed a suite of products around its IoT ‘Reveal Platform’ that allows user’s access to data across the whole metallurgical production line.
The product family will complement Vesuvius’s offering, while Vesuvius on its part will boost Sapotech’s expansion efforts on global markets. Under an exclusive agreement, Vesuvius will distribute Sapotech’s products in Central Europe, Asia and the Americas going forth.
“We are confident that Vesuvius’ global presence will boost our growth and presence in international markets,” says Sapotech CEO Saku Kaukonen. “Through technical collaboration we can develop our Reveal Platform technology further and offer a unique selection of Reveal and Vesuvius solutions to our customers. Ultimately, our solutions will revolutionize the monitoring of metal and steel manufacturing processes.”
Furthermore, experts from Sapotech and Vesuvius will collaborate to develop an expert service for Vesuvius’ steel customers, while exploring other opportunities for joint efforts.
