YASKAWA and VIPA have been active on the Polish market for many years, not only through sales partners and systems integrators, but also with their own sales team. Current market data shows that the company’s control, drive and robotics products are very popular among Polish customers. Expanding the local services that the company offers is an important milestone in YASKAWA’s strategy for increasing its presence in Europe. Founding YASKAWA Poland is part of YASKAWA’s expansion strategy for Europe.

Manfred Stern will head up YASKAWA Poland as the managing director. Mr Stern is CEO and President of YASKAWA Europe, as well as Corporate Vice President of Yaskawa Electric Corporation. Business unit managers for the Robotics, Drives&Motion and Controls divisions will take on operational business.

“We’re pleased to have our own YASKAWA subsidiary in the dynamic growth market of Poland”, says Manfred Stern. “It’s important to us to be close to our customers, and to offer those of them in Poland not only a competent sales team, but also great application consulting, start-up support and a local training centre for robots, Drives&Motion and VIPA controls from the beginning on.
We believe that we can work together with our local sales partners and system integrators to make attractive offers for the Polish market”.

“From day one, the subsidiary will make use of the synergy of YASKAWA’s entire product range and offer all-in-one solutions with VIPA PLCs, HMIs and I/Os; machine controls, servomotors, inverter drives and medium-voltage inverters, as well as MOTOMAN robots, including planning services”.
