Yaskawa Partners with US Based Start-Up Oishii on Plant Factory Automation
Yaskawa announced today that it reached a capital and business alliance with Oishii Farm Corporation on May 30. The purpose of this partnership is to become a global leader in automation in the agricultural and food fields by providing Oishii plant factories with automation systems based on the solution concept “i³-Mechatronics” promoted by Yaskawa, and to contribute toward realizing a sustainable society through the stable food supply.
On the other hand, one of the main strategies of Yaskawa’s new mid-term business plan, Realize 25, focuses on expanding business in the applicable field of mechatronics, and we are intensifying initiatives to apply the factory automation expertise in the agricultural and food fields. The Group company, FAMS Corporation, also develops and distributes the plant factory system called Agrine, which applies these technologies.
