With an annual sales volume of more than 410 billion Yen (about 3.5 billion euros), YASKAWA is a world-leading manufacturer of servo drives (Sigma-7 Series), inverter drives (such as the GA700), and MOTOMAN industrial robots.
Founded in 1915 in Japan, the companys philosophy has been based on the principle of highest quality for more than 100 years, making YASKAWA a global leader.
VIPA GmbH in Herzogenaurach, which specialises in visualisation and process automation, has also formed part of YASKAWA since 2012. Furthermore, YASKAWA acquired The Switch Engineering Cooperation, which does business in the wind turbine sector, in October 2014.
This makes YASKAWA one of the few global companies able to supply components and solutions for almost all industries from a single source.
