Murata Machinery USA Celebrates 50 Years of Automation in North America

Murata Machinery USA (Muratec), a manufacturer of industrial automation, celebrates its 50th anniversary across North America. Various activities are planned throughout 2024 to commemorate Muratec's golden year.

Operating as a subsidiary of Kyoto, Japan-based Murata Machinery Ltd., Murata Machinery USA provides sales, service and support for the Muratec brand.

"Muratec has a rich history of innovation and leadership in North America, revolutionizing the automation landscape with groundbreaking solutions that are often the first of their kind, the only ones available or the world's fastest," said a company spokesperson.

"Murata Machinery USA has been a beacon of excellence, driving industrial innovation and achieving continental success," said Toshiyuki Komori, President and CEO, Murata Machinery USA. "Unwavering in our commitment, we aim to propel the Muratec brand of end-to-end automation to new heights across North America, helping customers maintain their competitive edge with automation."

In May 1974, Murata Machinery Ltd. established Murata of America, Inc. in Charlotte, NC, initially focusing on textile machinery. In October 1989, it acquired the Wiedemann Division from the Warner & Swasey Company, creating Murata Wiedemann, Inc. The unified brand of Muratec was introduced in October 1991. By June 2002, the company consolidated its U.S. subsidiaries, Murata of America, Inc. and Murata Wiedemann, Inc., into Murata Machinery USA, Inc. Throughout North America, Muratec expanded its automation portfolio to encompass material handling, machine tools, fabrication technology and cleanroom automation solutions, showcasing a broadened range of offerings.
