ITM USA and TAM (Thomas Automation Management, LLC) establish cooperation in the fields of engineering and support services in the USA and abroad.
ITM and TAM, both based in Virgina, USA, have joined forces to provide local service support in the USA . 

ITM USA (part of ITMGroup) and TAM have many years of expertise in the national and international tobacco industry. With this cooperation, the companies complement eachother to create common synergies by developing and utilizing their strengths and infrastructure. 

A team of 17 engineers and technicians are ready to support customers on major plc and automation platforms such as: Siemens, Allen Bradley, Beckhoff and Mitsubishi. Other services include equipment layout and footprint preparation, installations, maintenance support, troubleshooting, contractor management, data system maintenance and automation IT support as well as locally-stored original spare parts. 

With its proven Continuous Improvement framework (OEE- Sense Us) ITM and TAM are able to improve customer’s efficiency-flexibility ratio. The combination of technical know-how and measurement tools is geared to further enhancing or refining existing equipment. 

Jason Carr, Regional Sales Director, regards the cooperation as a perfect match: “We complement each other perfectly as a partner in the Tobacco industry.  Our customers will also benefit from the synergies being developed because we will bring experience, consistency and valuable support in the region”.  

"The relationship between ITM and TAM continues to be a great opportunity to leverage our technical knowledge and experience with such a well respected and technically innovative company such as ITM” according to Ricky Thomas, Managing Director of Thomas Automation Management, LLC.  

ITMGroup has become one of the leading innovators and suppliers of technology for the global tobacco industry. Together with the Solaris, ITM's multi-segment in-line technology, the company now offers a complete portfolio of solutions for Risk Reduced Products (RRP).

 ‘Leading innovator’ and ‘passion to serve’ are core values through which the ITMGroup successfully distinguishes itself in the market and the cooperation with TAM is further demonstration of this.
