Yamaha is the only SMT vendor with a full line solution.”

In addition to adding factory automated material delivery systems, connected factory tools, computer-controlled component storage and a full line of industrial robots to Yamaha’s already extensive lineup, it was imperative that Yamaha expanded their IM operations in the USA. Tom went on to say, “We have doubled our office capability, and increased our showroom and training/refurbishment area by 80%.  Additionally, we have increased our spare parts inventory and storage area by over 50% to accommodate our additional machines as well as to provide direct support for our many new direct and corporate accounts.”

In the past year, Yamaha has increased direct headcount by over 20% and added 3 new distinct product lines to their portfolio. With a dedicated team of service engineers, applications engineers, technical support personnel and sales people, the IM Team now has room to grow even further in 2019 and beyond.
