IMS Robotics Group to establish IMS Robotics Australia


German Group to partner with local trenchless experts to develop the markets in Australasia.

The IMS Robotics Group, the German industry-leading developer, manufacturer, and supplier of investment goods, as well as materials for the trenchless sewer rehabilitation, has announced the establishment of yet another affiliated company: IMS Robotics Australia Pty Ltd with headquarters in Miranda, Sydney, Australia.

With the establishment of the newest member of the IMS Robotics Group, the further development of the Australasian market in the areas of main line cutting robots, and main line UV curing technology will be accelerated.

To that end, the IMS Robotics Group is happy to announce its partnership in the new company with two well-established, and renowned local companies in Australia: KRE Engineering Services, and UVR Hire Pty Ltd. 

KRE specialises in developing and distributing main line cutting robots for the Australian and Asian market and has established itself since 1991 with a remarkable footprint in these regions. UVR Hire will be the third shareholder in the joint company and is in the business of renting out UV curing technology in the Australasian trenchless market.

“With this new partnership we strive to promote the IMS Robotics brand in Australasia beyond our well-established house connection cutting technology,” says Konstantin Wolf, Head of Sales, and member of the executive board at the IMS Robotics Group.

“We think that our comprehensive portfolio of small to huge main line cutting robots, and our broad offer in terms of UV curing technology will be in high demand in the market. We appreciate our distribution partnerships in the house connection cutting sector but would now like to add the two missing product areas as well.”

Besides sales services to the market, the new company will, also provide repair and maintenance services for the main line product portfolio of IMS Robotics, as well as offer rental options to clients. 

“We are very excited about the opportunity to represent the product portfolio of IMS Robotics and look forward to rendering the same level of services to the market, as we used to do for other brands, and of course, our own robotic cutting equipment,” says Keith Edmunds, Director of KRE.

IMS Robotics Australia will stock the main line cutting and UV curing technology.

Ned Robinson, Director of UVR Hire says the company strongly believes in the rental business model.

“It is not only a profit centre itself, but also prepares for capex investment deals, and helps to keep clients operational in case of the need for their unit being to be at service station for repair or maintenance,” Robinson says. 

“IMS Robotics Australia Pty Ltd will mark another step in establishing the group in yet another market and to further promote our full product portfolio, whilst we appreciate the business as generated by our existing distributors in Australia,” Wolf says.

“The new company will, besides the main line cutting and UV curing technology, also promote the brands and products of other IMS Robotics Group companies, such as Kardiam Diamond Tools, and Hurricane Trenchless Technologie. We are certain, that we can add more value to the trenchless industry down under and look forward to the next steps.”
