In order to expand its operations on European markets, Star Automation Europe, a manufacturer of robots and automation systems, recently entered an agency agreement with Green & Co, a Swedish company based in Anderstorp.
Founded in 1946 by Thure Green, whose nephew Johan is still the owner and president of the company, Green & Co has supplied machinery and equipment to the Scandinavian plastics industry since its inception and today distributes renowned brands such as JSW for injection moulding machines, KraussMaffei for extruders, as well as other major brands.
In recent years, new trends have emerged in the Swedish market such as automation, sustainability and digitalization, with a growing demand for equipment with a high level of integration and total control of production by the processor. Reducing waste is a major sustainability goal in Sweden and thanks to high quality control standards, Star Automation Europe's products are able to support Green & Co in meeting this requirement.
According to Anders Friborg (pictured right), sales manager for Green & Co, Star Automation Europe is "the right supplier of robots for our customers along with JSW, a leading manufacturer of full electric injection moulding machines, as well as a reliable partner in automation. The Swedish plastics industry is in fact highly automated."
