Cavotec Group expands in Norway

Cavotec Group expands in NorwayIt is with great pleasure that the Cavotec Group announces the acquisition of the remaining 80% of Micro-control as Micro-control was founded in 1984 and has since become a well established company specialised in the development and production of high-end industrial radio remote controls. Their main strategic focus is to develop and manufacture intrinsically safe radio remote controls for use in any type of application whatever the working conditions. Their range of EEx remote controls are the first ever to receive full ATEX approval as well as an IEC rating, placing them amongst the safest RRC’s in the world. Thanks to their outstanding safety record many Micro-control products are in operation in hazardous operating environments such as the offshore and mining industries. We feel that by combining Micro-control's state of the art technology and Cavotec's global presence and resources, we will be able to bring Micro-control forward to being a true market leader.
