IMS Robotics Group has established IMS Robotics Australia Pty Ltd - German Group has partnered with local trenchless experts to develop the markets in Australia and New Zealand

Sydney/Ottendorf-Okrilla, 30th of September 2022

The IMS Robotics Group, the German industry-leading developer, manufacturer, and supplier of investment goods, as well as materials for the trenchless sewer rehabilitation, announces the establishment of yet another affiliated company: IMS Robotics Australia Pty Ltd with headquarters in Miranda (Sydney/Australia).

With the establishment of this newest member, the IMS Robotics Group will further accelerate the development of the Australian and New Zealand market in the areas of main line cutting robots, and main line UV curing technology.

To that end, the IMS Robotics Group is pleased to announce its new affiliated company through a partnership with two recognised local companies in Australia: KRE Engineering Services Pty Ltd, and UVR Hire Pty Ltd. Established since 1991, KRE specialises in the development and distribution of main line cutting robots for the Australian and Asian market with a remarkable footprint in these regions. UVR Hire is in the UV curing technology business in the Australian trenchless market and will be the third shareholder in this joint company.

“With this new partnership we strive to promote the IMS Robotics brand in Australia and New Zealand beyond our well-established house connection cutting technology. We think that our comprehensive portfolio of small to huge main line cutting robots, and our broad offer in terms of UV curing technology will be in high demand in the market. We appreciate our distribution partnerships in the house connection cutting sector but would now like to include the two missing product areas as well”, explains Konstantin Wolf, Head of Sales, and member of the executive board at the IMS Robotics Group.

Besides sales services to the market, the new company will also provide repair and maintenance services for the main line and UV product portfolio of IMS Robotics, as well as offer rental options to clients.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to represent the product portfolio of IMS Robotics and look forward to rendering the same level of services to the market, as we used to do for other brands, and of course, our own robotic cutting equipment”, states Keith Edmunds, Director of KRE.


Ned Robinson, Director of UVR Hire adds: “We strongly believe in the rental business model, as it is not only a profit centre itself, but also prepares for capex investment deals, and helps to keep clients operational in case of the need for their unit being at the service station for repair or maintenance.”

“IMS Robotics Australia Pty Ltd will mark another step in establishing the group in yet another market and to further promote our full product portfolio, whilst we appreciate the business as generated by our existing distributors in Australia. The new company will, besides the main line cutting and UV curing technology, also promote the brands and products of other IMS Robotics Group companies, such as Kardiam Diamond Tools, and Hurricane Trenchless Technologie. We are certain, that we can add more value to the trenchless industry Down Under, and look forward to the next steps”, Konstantin Wolf summarises the latest strategical decision of the IMS Robotics Group.
