Memex Automation goes public, will trade on the TSX Venture Exchange

BURLINGTON, Ont. – (Oct.31, 2013) – Astrix Networks Inc., which operates under the trade name Memex Automation, has completed its reverse take-over of GPS Investment Corp., acquiring 48,132,080 common shares and will commence trading publicly upon acceptance of the take-over by the Toronto Stock Exchange’s Venture Exchange.

A reverse merger takeover (reverse IPO) involves the acquisition of a public company by a private company to ensure the private company may bypass the lengthy process of going public. These deals usually require a reorganization of capital of the acquiring company.

“This deal gives us a public presense on the Venture Exchange and allows us access to the working capital we need to further develop strategic partnerships to bring our products worldwide,” said Dave McPhail, CEO of Memex Automation. “We’re part of a worldwide market, and this opportunity puts us in a position to lead that market.”

Memex develops real-time shop-floor-to-top-floor technologies. Its flagship product, MERLIN, offers overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) metrics in real-time to allow manufacturers to enhance their production through shop-floor data analysis. The product earned the 2013 North American Frost & Sullivan award for Technology Innovation Leadership.

The company also has strategic partnerships with Microsoft and tool builder Mazak. The latter has installed Memex’s automation system at its Florence, Ky. plant.

McPhail, who now maintains a 36% share in the company, says Memex will use a portion of the funds raised from the reverse IPO, which total more than $854,000, to hire up to four employees and to market its products. “We need to get our products into more people’s hands and show them the benefits of using them to uncover what they don’t know about their shop floors,” he says. “This capital will allow us to do that going forward.”

Since it opened shop in 1992, Memex has partnered with 280 dealers and has worked with more than 12,000 customers globally. McPhail, along with a group of private investors, acquired the company in 2008.

Mazak Demos MTConnect Open Source Protocol with Canada’s Memex

Press release date: September 30, 2013

As 2013 Frost & Sullivan leadership award winner, Memex Automation’s MERLIN solution also chosen for Mazak’s Kentucky plant, and offered on machine tool giant’s product list.

Mississauga, ON – Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS 2013) – Mazak Corp., one of the largest machine tool manufacturers, is conducting a live demonstration of leading edge machine tool automation with MERLIN real-time industrial machine monitoring and control technology from Canada’s Memex Automation Inc. The Mazak-Memex demo will take advantage of MTConnect, the open source, royalty-free manufacturing protocol that helps unite islands of unconnected information on the shop floor. Dave McPhail, President and CEO of Burlington, ON-based Memex, is also conducting a seminar on MTConnect Tues. Oct. 1 at 3PM in Mazak’s booth #4638 at CMTS 2013. Memex is at booth #7023.

The Mazak-Memex collaboration at CMTS 2013, Canada’s premiere manufacturing event for buyers and sellers, follows a decision by Mazak to co-market Memex solutions on Mazak’s product list, and install Memex’s MERLIN solution throughout the machine tool manufacturer’s recently expanded 800,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Florence, KY. This U.S. plant produces 100 different models of machine tools, including sophisticated 5-axis and multi-tasking machines. Many of these models are designed, and manufactured in the United States, then shipped across North America and also to export markets.

Memex Automation’s flagship product MERLIN is a Manufacturing Execution System application that tracks manufacturing operations bi-directionally from the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) work order to each machine’s detailed operations. MERLIN is able to connect to all machines on the shop floor using various protocols, MTConnect adapters or network connectivity devices. It measures capacity utilization and Overall Equipment Effectiveness metrics, and tracks up to the second detail about every event at a machine, all automatically.

“Using MERLIN’s capability, Mazak is taking another positive step in further increasing the productivity of our North American operations, ensuring the strong competitiveness of our Kentucky manufacturing,” said Brian Papke, President of Mazak Corp. “We continue to take a leadership position in propagating the MTConnect open protocol. MTConnect’s value to our customers is in the ability for them to establish extensive and open channels of communication for plug-and-play interconnectivity between devices. MTConnect allows software to be universally applied between different types of machine models so that information is readily available for improving machine tool utilization.”

Earlier this month, Memex won the 2013 Frost & Sullivan North American Machine Monitoring Systems Technology Innovation Leadership Award. Frost & Sullivan awards recognize companies that demonstrate outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development.
