FFG and Siemens ink digital enterprise and automation pact
Fair Friend Enterprise Co., Ltd. (FFG) and Siemens have signed a memorandum of understanding to further strengthen their business relationship in the field of digital enterprise and automation.
The two businesses signed the MoU at this year’s EMO Hannover (held Sept. 18-23, 2017). The extended partnership will consolidate the Siemens Digital Enterprise Suite across FFG and integrate Siemens digitalization and automation technologies into FFG’s machine tools and machine tool technologies.
The collaboration will involve deploying the Siemens Digital Enterprise Suite across FFG’s 90+ affiliated companies.
“Siemens’ global setup, with its all-encompassing and pioneering Digital Enterprise concept and its leading future-oriented technologies for Intelligent Manufacturing and the Factory of the Future, is an excellent partner for FFG," says FFG Chairman Dr. Jimmy Chu.
Dr. Wolfgang Heuring, CEO of the Motion Control Business Unit at Siemens AG, continues: “Our two companies have been working together for many years on a basis of trust and with a common theme: a passion for machine tools. Putting this collaboration on a broader footing from now on against the background of the opportunities provided by digitalization is a seminal and important step for both companies.”
