Komatsu Forest acquired Oryx Simulations, based in Umeå, Sweden, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Komatsu Forest and Oryx Simulation share a long history. During the 1990s a project was started by Komatsu Forest and Umeå University that was the starting point for Oryx Simulations. During the years Komatsu Forest has been a customer to the company. Today Komatsu Forest sells simulators, developed by Oryx Simulations, all over the world. Now the cooperation is further deepened when Komatsu Forest acquires the company.
“Oryx Simulations is a very interesting company that we have had the opportunity to follow closely as a customer. They are a cutting-edge technology company in their industry and the simulators they develop have received very good response among their users due to their high fidelity and lifelike graphics. Training is significantly facilitated by these simulators and we see that Oryx Simulations has a great potential for further growth,” says Annelie Persson, Press Officer Komatsu Forest.
After the acquisition Oryx Simulations will continue their business as usual as an independent company. Both companies consider it a very important part of the acquisition that Oryx Simulations maintains its independence and integrity for continued trust among its customers.
Oryx Simulations is a Swedish company and world leader in simulator systems for heavy-vehicle applications.
