Prima Electro North America forms to expand service and product offerings

Chicopee, Mass. – PRIMA INDUSTRIE announces the formation of Prima Electro North America. The new organization, based in Chicopee, was formed by the merger of the former Convergent Laser Division of PRIMA North America and is the result of the organizational changes and re-branding announced by PRIMA INDUSTRIE in March 2011.

"The new Prima Electro North America is a leader in electronics, CNC, general motion controls, and laser technologies. The company is responsible for sales and service of the OSAI brand of CNC and general motion control products and DOTS® (Dedicated Off The Shelf) electronic assemblies within North America, and for design, manufacture, sales, and service of the Convergent brand of high-power laser sources for industrial applications worldwide," stated Terry L. VanderWert, president of Prima Electro North America.

"By bringing together the OSAI and Convergent operations into an integrated unit, we will better serve the needs of the North American industrial market and further grow our business," reported VanderWert. "Both OSAI and Convergent have great histories in their respective businesses which we intend to leverage for the benefit of our customers."

Today’s Convergent brand of high powered lasers include the CX, CP, and CV series (2.5 to 6KW) of industrial CO2 lasers and the CL series of high peak power Nd:YAG lasers. Originally designed and manufactured primarily for use in PRIMA products, Convergent lasers now will be marketed to outside original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) and end users, according to VanderWert.

"The OSAI, DOTS and Convergent product lines and their innovative technology will now become available to a wider spectrum of customers," reported VanderWert. "Equally important, the combined and deeper PRIMA organization will provide complete ongoing customer service, which is key to our customers’ growth and success."
