We have very good relationships with numerous other companies as well as formed some meaningful partnerships over the years and have on many occasions formed joint ventures when quoting and implementing large projects.

The current norm is to outsource various functions / tasks for which we are not equipped to do, such as major electrical installations. The outsourcing will become less as CMW Automation is embarking on a growth plan for the next few months. More and more work will be done in-house, offering more work opportunities to the local community.
