Diverseco acquires robotics company, RTA


Diverseco, an Australian integrated measurement, packaging and product inspection solutions provider, has announced its acquisition of Robot Technologies/Systems Australia (RTA).

RTA has over thirty years of experience in industrial robotics, manufacturing automation, process automation and factory automation. The company supplies and services robotics equipment for businesses within a broad range of industries across Australia and New Zealand. These include manufacturing, mining, commodity handling, defence and pharmaceutical.

The company’s suppliers include leading brands Kawasaki, Staubli, Kyokutoh, Servo-Robot, Nitta and Pro-face, with the company currently providing applications for materials handling, sorting, machine unloading, fluid application, painting and welding, among others.

“RTA is a valuable addition to our group, and will complement and enhance our group’s current capabilities, especially our supply of solutions to the manufacturing, packaging equipment and freight sector,” said Brenton Cunningham, Diverseco CEO.

Trinton Smith, RTA General Manager is confident that the purchase heralds a new era for the company, at a time when the manufacturing industry is undergoing a technological resistance that is transforming operations.

Diverseco has agreed to retain the company’s existing contractors and employees.

RTA founder Doug Smith will remain at the company, and will be responsible for managing some key areas for the foreseeable future.

RTA will be closely aligned with another Diverseco company, Scaco, due to similarities in their automation operations. Group General Manager Tim Francis is tasked with overseeing both of these operations.
