New UK distributor: HMK Automation


We’re happy to announce that we have a new UK partner! HMK Automation is our first official distributor in the UK. This collaboration allows IXON to better serve its users in the UK and HMK can meet the market demand for IIoT products. HMK will support IXON with our growth into 2021 and beyond. We are looking forward to a long-term, efficient partnership!

Best timing for manufacturers

At the moment there’s an enormous increase in demand for remote service solutions due to the current circumstances around Covid-19. Just as we do, HMK sees that manufacturers need to adapt their way of working. That’s why this partnership comes at an ideal time for their customers.

Nick Calow, Technical Director at HMK Automation, said: “Here at HMK, we pride ourselves on working with the leading and most innovative suppliers and manufacturers who are at the cutting-edge of technology and innovation, so we’re delighted to join forces with IXON, which is at the forefront of IIoT solutions.”

Growth in the UK

The last 12 months IXON Cloud had a period of rapid growth throughout the UK. Daniel Fern, our UK Sales Managers says: “Hundreds of British machine facturers and system integrators now make use of IXON Cloud and utilise the benefits that IIoT provides, especially during recent Covid times”. 

With the help of IXON Cloud machine facturers and system integrators are able to remote access their machines. They don’t have to be on location of the machine to fix any problems, which means it’s time saving and cost reducing. During this period of time when we have to deal with a pandemic, it’s great that there is no need for physical contact with customers.
