Nidec ASI, head of the Nidec Industrial Solutions platform belonging to the Nidec Group, and Bartholet Maschinenbau AG, the ropeway systems manufacturer, have signed a new multi-year trade agreement, which will run until 2022, for the construction and sale of ropeways all over the world.

More specifically, Nidec ASI will supply Bartholet with automation and control systems as well as the motors and inverters needed to build future installations worldwide. Nidec ASI will also give Bartholet the opportunity to use its commercial offices and spare parts storage facilities in its Italian and international premises.

The signing renews a decade-long period of collaboration between the two companies. The agreement includes the development of aerial cableway projects, for both mountain lift services and urban transport.

The partnership was primarily created with the aim of increasing the presence of Nidec ASI and Bartholet in markets where the companies believe the ropeways sector for transporting people is growing the fastest, such as in China, South Korea and countries in the Middle East.

"For us this agreement represents an important springboard for the development of ropeway projects around the world. It will give us the opportunity to show our capabilities and support the growth of Bartholet in Russia and Asia (China, Korea and the Philippines). We strongly believe in this collaboration, because the union of our expertise can provide customers with the most advanced and tailor-made solutions. And the first results are proving us right," declared Dominique Llonch, CEO of Nidec ASI. "Thanks to this opportunity, we are aiming to double our business in this sector by 2022, increasing not only our stock of spare parts and our assembly capabilities but, above all, investing in people and strengthening our local teams of engineers who will offer in situ service activities."
