Kongsberg PCS Celebrates First Year Of Becoming A Standalone Company On April 6, 2022, Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) celebrated the first anniversary of be- coming a standalone company “We have achieved an incredible amount in this first 12 months,” said Stuart Fox, President of Kongsberg PCS. “Despite facing the same obvious challenges and market volatility that has affected every business, we have en- joyed an amazing and incredibly rewarding first year as a standalone business. We delivered outstanding results and released innovative new products, we have changed our go-to-market models and strengthened our customer service and satisfaction offering, and we have made stra- tegic acquisitions to support our strategic growth,” he said. In May last year, just weeks after the sale of Kongsberg to private equity firm OpenGate Capital was announced, Kongsberg PCS launched the smallest high-speed produc- tion table on the market, the Kongsberg C20. The latest addition to its Kongsberg C Series of digital finishing tables packs all the professional features of the market-leading range – renowned for being the most productive cutting tables available - into a compact size of just 1.6m x 1.4m. “While the C20 is the smallest in the Kongsberg C Se- ries range, it retains all the same professional features and specifications as its bigger counterparts,” said Stuart. “The high cost of owning or renting space is a serious problem for many in the sign and display market, but by introducing the Kongsberg C20, we made it so there is no longer any need for businesses to compromise on production and quality due to a lack of available space,” he said. In August, Kongsberg PCS announced the acquisition of MultiCam, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer and distributor of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting machines and digital finishing processes. The acquisition of MultiCam, which included its operations in the U.S. and sales offices in Canada and Germany, expanded Kongsberg PCS’ mar- ket reach and customer base across North America and Europe, creating the world’s first diversified provider of digital finishing and CNC cutting machines. “From a customer perspective, we now have a very broad range of products – we have an offering for any ap- plication our customers might need,” said Stuart. “We now have much more powerful routers within our portfolio, so we have a solution for those customers that are working with more heavy-duty materials or indeed high volumes of sign and display materials. “We have also made significant changes in terms of customer service and satisfaction in our first year,” said Stuart. “We know that great service gives a great customer experience, and we have a real focus on customer service and training. We want our customers to enjoy the experi- ence of owning a Kongsberg or MultiCam machine. We ab- solutely want our deployment and service to be the best, and we will put every effort into ensuring we achieve that.”
