Omron Europe (Industrial Automation Business) has appointed Hiroyuki Usui as chief executive officer in succession to Shizuto Yukomoto, who has returned to Japan to head up Omron’s Environmental Solutions Business.

Mr Usui joins Omron Europe after running the global Machine Control Department in one of Omron’s Industrial Automation Business Divisions, a position in which he worked with Omron colleagues and customers all over the world.

As well as bringing next-generation technology to European customers, Mr Usui said that he wants to shape the Omron Europe organisation in such a way that European customers can benefit from the infrastructure that Omron has in Asian countries such as China, India and Japan. ‘I’m pretty sure our decades of experience, know-how and our deep understanding of the culture, can benefit machine builders who have Asia as their strategic route for growth,’ he said.
