Maple Grove, MN, 04/15/19 – Mechatronic Solutions, Inc., an industry leader in the Upper Midwest of industrial automation technology and value-added solutions in Minnesota, announces it has become a go-to-market partner with Tulip. This partnership allows Mechatronic Solutions to provide sales, services, and additional technical support for Tulip’s Platform-as-a-Service to Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Wisconsin.

Tulip’s Manufacturing Application platform designed for your shop floor, is being used by global manufacturers such as Schneider Electric, Jabil, and New Balance, to build apps that digitize processes, while empowering operators to be more effective and efficient and equipping leadership with the real time visibility needed to make data driven decisions. The platform’s drag and drop interface allows apps to be created and deployed in a matter of days without writing any code or implementing complex MES systems.

Tulip offers flexible plans to suit the needs of manufacturers of all sizes. Earlier this year, the company launched manufacturing’s first App Library, a collection of over 20 apps that manufacturers can use and customize as part of a 30-day free trial. The company also launched Factory Kit, a quick-start kit with all the hardware and software manufacturers need to begin building IIoT-enabled apps.

“We’re excited to partner with Tulip, the Manufacturing App market leader, to bring the benefits of their Platform-as-a-Service to our customers,” said Shane Waskey, President, Mechatronic Solutions. “This partnership will make it even easier for our customers to embrace Industry 4.0 and achieve a faster time-to-value”.

“Mechatronic will be a tremendous addition to our family of Partners and we are excited to leverage their technical expertise” said Natan Linder, Tulip’s CEO, “We are excited to welcome a partner with a great track record and tremendous sales and technical competencies to the Minnesota Market.” Matt Katzman, Head of Global Sales and Channels, added, “Mechatronic Solution’s wealth of knowledge about manufacturing technology makes them a true value-added partner, providing superior pre-and-post sales support. We look forward to working together to bring the benefits of Tulip’s platform to more manufacturers.”
