A word from Pat Beirne, CEO Mergon
We always had ambitions to be a significant company. But it wasn’t just about being big and global and successful; we wanted to do work that was rewarding and meaningful. That drove us to go out into the world and find customers, suppliers and partners who felt the same. We were always drawn to working with the innovative disruptors, wherever they were and whatever it took.
In 1992, at a time when Japanese companies were just starting to come to Europe, we completed a technology transfer with Takagi Seiko. We could see the opportunities, invested in learning their ways, hired people who spoke Japanese, learned about their culture.
We’ve always been open-minded and curious. We were early and enthusiastic adopters of technology and automation. We invested in our own Innovation Centre to challenge conventional approaches to production. Today, we’re at the forefront of digital adoption and acceleration. It’s very natural for us to be restless – constantly changing and trying new things.
You can see this openness to change in our new brand identity and website. Our new look more accurately reflects our commitment to sustainable production and communicates our core values of Care, Confidence and Curiosity to employees, customers and the communities in which we operate.
This investment in our brand affirms our position as one of the great, global engineering brands and signals our continued ambition to be a significant company.
