Does It Help? (CONT’D FROM PAGE 38)


pay attention to yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you run up against your own limits. Play the game you got. Don’t try to be someone you are not and, as much as possible, share your honest, sincere and positive obser- vations of others as much as you can. We all need more light in our lives. Just don’t turn your conversations – with yourself and with others – into interrogations. Since 1990 Mark Neely has worked as an independent corporate trainer and consultant.

Visit Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems Acquires MultiCam Inc Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (PCS) has confirmed the acquisition of MultiCam Inc, a U.S. manufacturer and distributor of CNC cutting machines and digital finishing processes. The acquisition of MultiCam, including its oper- ations in the U.S. and sales offices in Canada and Germa- ny, expands Kongsberg’s market reach and customer base across North America and Europe and creates a diversi- fied provider of digital finishing and CNC cutting machines. Stuart Fox, Kongsberg PCS President, said, “Our busi- nesses coming together to drive best-in-class cutting and finishing processes will deliver a tremendous advantage for our global customer base. Following the completion of the deal I am now excited to begin integrating our busi- nesses and exploring new markets.” News of the acquisition comes just five months after Kongsberg PCS was established as a stand-alone busi- ness after being acquired by OpenGate Capital. Open- Gate Capital’s Partner, Julien Lagrèze said, “We recog- nized the importance of digitization for this business and developed an investment thesis that includes the growth of Kongsberg PCS through innovation and add-on invest- ments. With this strategic combination, Kongsberg PCS gains greater scale, and expands its reach to a broader, global customer base with new products and services.” Fox added, “We are excited to develop and expand the product portfolio and to create new opportunities to grow our tooling and consumables offering. In addition to strengthening our hardware offering, we are also planning routes into new markets, in areas we know are currently not catered for and will benefit from our market-leading solutions. MultiCam has extraordinary market reach with its range of CNC routers, laser, plasma, waterjet and knife cutting machines, and we are thrilled to now welcome Mul- tiCam to the Kongsberg family.” The company will continue to operate under the Multi- Cam name within Kongsberg PCS, with David Morse, CEO, joining the Kongsberg PCS senior management team and continuing to lead the MultiCam business.
