The LNS Group (Orvin, Switzerland), a manufacturer of coolant and conveyor systems, has acquired Yoshida Tekko KK, a manufacturer of chip conveyors, coolant systems and filtration systems in Nomi City, Japan. LNS says the acquisition will further facilitate its expansion in Asia and the implementation of its “one-stop-shop” strategy, a drive to automate CNC machine tools with an array of peripheral products that the company has already implemented in the U.S. and Europe.
The newly founded “LNS Yoshida KK” takes over the operations of Yoshida Tekko KK. Yoshida will continue to produce its existing product line for domestic and export markets, along with LNS standard conveyors when the products complement one another. Likewise, LNS Group says it will leverage Yoshida’s high-end filtration technology and large conveyor systems in the U.S. and Europe.
