MultiCam Targets Growth Following First Year as Part of Kongsberg PCS
The 12 months since Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) acquired MultiCam, the U.S. manufacturer and distributor of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting machines and digital finishing processes, has been eventful.
“When the deal was announced, we said we were excited to develop and expand the product portfolio and to create new opportunities to grow our tooling and consumables offering,” said Stuart Fox, president and CEO of Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems. “That’s precisely what we’ve done. Over the last year, in addition to strengthening our hardware offering, we have made inroads into new markets, in areas previously not catered for that can now benefit from our market-leading solutions. We’ve achieved one of our key objectives in making sure our customers not only have the right machine for the job, but that they also get the best out of that machine.”
Kongsberg PCS acquired MultiCam in 2021, expanding the company’s market reach and customer base across North America and Europe, and creating the world’s first diversified provider of digital finishing and CNC cutting machines. In May this year, Matt Thackray was appointed VP/GM of the company’s operations in the Americas.
“We were excited to demonstrate our market-leading machines at this year’s PRINTING United Expo in Las Vegas,” said Thackray, who is responsible for managing the commercial, service support, and financial performance of the business across the USA, Canada, Latin America and South America. “We offered an impressive Super Booth experience at the show, with two adjacent booths from which we demonstrated both our market leading range of Kongsberg digital finishing tables and our MultiCam CNC machines.
“As well as our MultiCam Apex 3R CNC router and smaller Apex 1R, we used PRINTING United to showcase the latest innovation in the range, the Celero 4 Digital Cutting System. The Celero 4 flatbed cutter and router is uniquely designed for graphics, signage, display, and packaging applications,” he said. “The wide format capabilities offer new applications to businesses, with the Celero able to cut up to one 10-foot roll or two 53-inch rolls side by side.”
