In 2018 Valk Welding has been working with the company Panasonic from Japan for 30 years. In 1988 Valk Welding included the first Panasonic welding robot in its product range. This was the beginning of a very successful collaboration.
In the following years, both parties intensified the collaboration and it has become more of a partnership than a customer-supplier relationship. For example, Valk Welding helps in the development of the Panasonic robots, manipulators and software programs and contributes its knowledge and experience as a robot integrator for the developments of the Panasonic (welding) products.
‘The strong connection’ symbolizes perfectly the relationship with Panasonic. A strong connection where both partners reinforce each other, making growth and development possible.
