Routeco: new technologies & automation solutions

Industrial automation company Routeco is investing in advanced technologies with IXON & automation solutions with CoreTigo, to keep up with Industry 4.0

Industrial automation company Routeco and wireless industrial solution provider CoreTigo have teamed up in a new partnership, to power the manufacturing sector forward with industry 4.0 technology. 

Industrial automation solutions

Routeco was founded in 1978 as an industrial electrical distributor based in Milton Keynes, England. The company manufactured electrical products, such as cables and wiring accessories. Since then, it has become a leading distributor of industrial automation. 

Israeli wireless service CoreTigo hosts connectivity and edge solutions for machine builders, system integrators and industrial equipment manufacturers. 

The two have partnered to improve factory automation methods and create new applications. CoreTigo’s services are based on the IO-Link Wireless standard, which are well-suited to factory environments. Routeco is advancing IO-Link Wireless communication and transforming machines.

Routeco are investing in advanced technologies with IXON

Routeco has also recently entered into a new partnership with Dutch technology company IXON, whose cloud and no-code IoT provides manufacturing time-saving advantages, in comparison to remote machine access.

With IXON’s cloud platform IXrouter, customers are able to control their operations from machine to cloud, something which really appealed to Routeco. 

“IXON’s remote services allows us to deliver even more value to our customers, it fits perfectly with our strategy as the go-to partner for enterprises seeking to increase productivity by investing in advanced technologies,” said Keith Harrison, Group Commercial Director at Routeco. “This announcement builds on our existing IXON and Routeco partnerships in the Netherlands and Belgium”.

“The strategic partnership with Routeco in the UK and Ireland allows us to accelerate in these markets with local presence, native support and even faster delivery,” said Willem Hofmans, IXON CEO. “With Routeco we found a partner that is able to deliver the highest standards IXON stands for.”
