Extended offer – global integration

The Schmersal Group restructures its service division / Foundation of tec.nicum – Solutions & Services GmbH

Wuppertal, 8th April 2024. The Schmersal Group is restructuring its service business, which promises great development potential in view of growing demand. The range of safety services offered by tec.nicum will be significantly expanded – particularly in the areas of digitalisation and complete solutions for machine safety – and the global activities and expertise will be more closely integrated.

On 8 April 2024, Schmersal will establish tec.nicum – Solutions & Services GmbH as a new subsidiary, which will also incorporate omnicon engineering GmbH, which Schmersal acquired in 2019. The new company will be based in Kirkel-Limbach in Saarland / Southwest Germany. 

Bruno Ricardo Diniz, who previously led tec.nicum's business in Latin America, now heads this newly founded company and is also Head of Global tec.nicum. The European business of tec.nicum – Solutions & Services GmbH will be supported by Enildo Caetano dos Santos as Business Development Manager and the German team will be handled by Carsten Doll as Site Manager in Kirkel and Tobias Keller as Sales Manager.

"On the one hand, our customers will benefit from our technical expertise, safety knowledge and application experience, all integrated in a global process that takes advantage of emerging technologies such as lidar, augmented reality and digitalisation. For example, to support customers in the Americas, we will draw on the expertise of Brazilian engineers, while in Europe the new company will provide support and in Asia we will draw on the expertise of the Indian team," explains Bruno Diniz. "On the other hand, we will significantly expand our portfolio of safety services and lead the company into new opportunities that it has not yet explored".

The four pillars on which tec.nicum's offering has been built to date - knowledge transfer, consulting, technical planning and execution - will be supplemented by two more: digitalisation and outsourcing.

digitalisation: tec.nicum is increasingly offering newly developed software solutions, such as a new tool for carrying out risk assessments, as well as new digital technologies such as cloud solutions, IIoT applications, digitalised lockout-tagout procedures and energy management tools.

outsourcing: tec.nicum offers companies the opportunity to completely outsource all tasks related to machine safety, from the planning and installation of control cabinets to the design of holistic safety solutions. tec.nicum provides the user with ready-to-connect plug & play solutions.

tec.nicum has 162 workers worldwide, including safety experts, technicians, and engineers. As the service offering expands and the tec.nicum organisation grows, the number of employees will increase significantly to be able to handle all the expected demand.
