Accenture is all set to acquire the industrial and robotics automation firm Pollux, headquartered in Joinville, Brazil.
Accenture said the acquisition would expand its capabilities for clients in consumer goods, pharmaceutical and automotive industries seeking to make their factories, plants and supply chains more productive, safe and sustainable. This was Accenture’s first robotics acquisition, and it will take over the entire operations of Pollux in South America soon.
Last month, another IT giant Wipro acquired Precision Automation and Robotics India (PARI) based in Pune. Wipro is looking to expand its global footprint and become an end-to-end industrial automation company.
