As of July 30th, 2019, the tmp GmbH automation & engineering became a part of the SCIO Automation GmbH. This marks the second addition of an automation specialist to the SCIO platform within a week, which was founded this past January.
For its industrial and mechanical engineering customer base, tmp provides complex industrial software solutions with a technical focus on mission-critical applications (e.g. commissioning). Hereby, tmp specializes in programmable logic controllers (PLC), robotic and high-language programming. Besides industrial software programming, tmp rounds out its offering with system integration services for imaging processing applications, an in-house developed specialized software solution (“Manufacturing Data Agent”), as well as functional safety services. Founded in 1998 by the two Managing Directors Holger Graeber und Thomas Gutmann, tmp is headquartered in Dinslaken and employs around 25 people.
"With tmp we are very pleased to welcome the second automation specialist to our automation platform, just after joining forces with the AUTKOM Group," says Michael Goepfarth, SCIO’s CEO. "With these new additions to the SCIO platform, we found strong new partners who complement our automation competencies perfectly and allow us to provide our customers with an even broader range of specialized services.” Just seven months after the merger of the Schiller and VESCON Groups, the SCIO Automation platform now consists of four companies forming a strong automation specialist, deeply rooted in the German SME sector (“Mittelstand”).
Similar to AUTKOM, tmp will remain operationally independent while being able to profit from the many group-wide benefits and SCIO’s support in the forward-looking strategic development as part of the larger automation platform." During the last 20 years, we have systematically and sustainably developed tmp into a specialized player in the field of automation. Joining forces with a larger automation platform, such as SCIO, is an important step for us to remain competitive in an increasingly globalized world and to fully leverage the strong growth potentials at hand," says Thomas Gutmann about the reasoning for joining SCIO.
