Prima Industrie has announced the formation of Prima Electro North America. The new organization, based in Chicopee, Mass., and led by Terry VanderWert, president, was formed by the merger of the former Convergent Laser Division of Prima North America and is the result of the organizational changes and rebranding announced by the company in March 2011.
The new company is responsible for sales and service of the OSAI brand of CNC and general motion control products and DOTS® (Dedicated Off The Shelf) electronic assemblies within North America. It also designs, manufactures, sells, and services the Convergent brand of high-power laser sources for industrial applications worldwide. Originally designed and manufactured primarily for use in Prima products, the lasers now will be marketed to outside OEMs and end users.
