    Waytous, the leader of unmanned intelligent mines, completed A2 round of financing and aims towards a global development with the Support of Cathay Cartech Fund

    Waytous officially announced that it has secured more than 100 million RMB A2 round of financing. Up to now, Waytous had raised, over 200 million RMB in series A round of financing since July 2019.

    The A2 round of financing was led by Cathay Cartech Fund, expert in the field of automobile and logistics, followed by FOF, Hai Chuang Fund of Funds, by Hina Group and by Sigma Square Capital, Waytous’ oldest shareholder.

    Cathay Capital is a leading global cross-border private equity investment platform, with 3.5 billion euros assets under management. Cathay Cartech Fund under Cathay Capital pays special attention to companies with great prospects and potential in the implementation of hard tech industry.

    Waytous attracted high-quality capitals thanks to its technical strength, great innovation ability and solid industry reputation.

    Dr. Long Chen, the CEO of Waytous, states:

    “It’s an honor to have the recognition and trust of Cathay Cartech Fund and Haichuang fund of funds. Together we will work to change the traditional mining industry and build a world-class leading intelligent ecosystem. The Chinese government recently published its guiding opinions on accelerating the development of intelligent coal mine before 2025. In 2020, we will continue to invest in productization, platformization and systematization. In parallel, we will further promote the implementation of unmanned solutions of underground mines as well as fostering the mass production and delivery of autonomous mining equipment. We will largely benefit from Cathay’s profound international background and global vision; Cathay is a great partner for exceptional start-ups to move further towards the international market. In 2019 Waytous has started its overseas business in North America and Africa and will now accelerate the internationalization of its business with new partners joining.”

    According to John Li, the partner of Cathay Cartech Fund:

    “Technology innovation drives the improvement of efficiency. The intelligent mine is a hundred-billion-value market that needs to be realised. It is also one of the most important field of implementation for the autonomous-driving technology. While the traditional mining industry is facing issues such as labor shortage, safety supervision and cost benefit, Waytous brings a comprehensive solution to these challenges. Waytous is a pioneer of this technology in China and has accumulated years of technological expertise in unmanned mine and are highly recognized by mining companies and machinery manufacturers. As of now, they are the only supplier that can provide a complete product line. Cathay will bring its industrial knowledge,international resources and global deployment skills to promote Waytous’ expansion, especially in the North American and African markets.”

    The first autonomous mining solution

    In China, the first total autonomous mining was officially launched in September 2019 and put into commercial operation. The autonomous haulage system in the total solution of unmanned mine provided by Waytous can carry out the functions of autonomous transportation, truck-excavator coordination, intelligent dispatching, and emergency takeover.

    The latest autonomous truck is 8.7m long, 4m high, with a full load of 90 tons and stable speed of 20km / h. Three systems, autonomous driving, fleet scheduling and remote control, are applied, which can fully meet the requirements of mining operation. The total solution can eliminate the risk of personal safety, reduce the operating cost, and play a crucial role in improving the profitability of mining enterprises. This is the only total solution for autonomous mines in China with independent intellectual property.

    World-class team fostering technical revolution in traditional manufacturing

    As a pioneer of autonomous intelligent mine, Waytous’ team has almost 30 years’ experience in this field and come from the best universities worldwide. Guided by Prof. Wang, our chief scientist professor (the director of The Sate Key Laboratory for Management and Control of Complex Systems at China Academy of Science), the team built China’s first autonomous Intelligent mine system and provided optimum total solutions for end to end autonomous mine transportation based on our deep understanding of the autonomous driving technology and extraordinary industrial design abilities.

    Promoting the formulation of industrial standards and creating intelligent mine ecosystem

    In response to the accelerating business implementation of unmanned mines, Waytous is bringing more professionals in business development, production management, quality control and after-sale service on board. We are actively improving the supply chain system, constructing a powerful operating system, building operations centers in core mining in China. Nowadays, Waytous is thoroughly connecting the upstream and downstream companies and will reunite them to accelerate the construction of the intelligent mine ecosystem.

    Turning challenges into opportunities and empowering the future to build a harmonious coexistence of man and nature

    Waytous’ CEO Dr. Long Chen says: “The coronavirus outbreak at the beginning of 2020 sets a big challenge to the industry but can be viewed as a turning point in technology upgrading.” The artificial intelligence has great potential in increasing productive and operating efficiencies. It is the most effective and reliable way to ensure workers’ safety and protecting the industry from uncontrollable effects. In the next 3 years, Waytous will further cement our core technology and facilitate its implementations. Starting with mine sites, we will reach out for more scenarios that our autonomous-driving system can be applied in.  Waytous will conduct business around the world at the same time and increase the safeness and the stability of our products. Our goal is to build a modernized society where human and the nature can live in harmony.”

    Today, Datawords is a fully integrated global Group, offering its customers the ability to roll out digital and video content on an international scale, with the support of multilingual technologies.

    The arrival of Keensight Capital as a majority investor will enable Datawords to pursue and accelerate its technological innovation strategy, especially in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Furthermore, Datawords will continue to enrich its offering of digital content creation and production offering and expand its international presence.

    Stanislas de Nervo, Co-founder and CEO of Datawords, comments: "Datawords will celebrate its 20th anniversary next June with the opening of a new chapter. The last five years were truly transformative for us as we built a unique platform on three continents, integrated and developed new expertise and attracted new talent. Cathay Capital will always hold an important place in our history for having twice supported us as a shareholder in the creation of a truly international Group. We are delighted to enter this new phase of our history with Keensight, building on the relationship of trust we have enjoyed since 2015."

    Philippe Crochet, Managing Partner of Keensight, said: "We are very pleased to continue and to deepen our collaboration with the co-founders of Datawords and the talented multicultural team they have built up and with whom we are very familiar. The unrivalled quality of service offering of Datawords, which is a world leader in its sector, coupled with the ability of its managers to generate double-digit growth every year for the past 20 years have convinced us to invest a majority stake in this great entrepreneurial adventure. We intend to leverage our extensive expertise in the IT sector to support the Group in successfully stepping up to the AI challenge internationally."

    Edouard Moinet, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Cathay Capital said: "By meeting an unmet demand and combining technological expertise and cultural understanding to facilitate the international deployment of content, Datawords has succeeded in creating a new agency model. We are proud to have supported Datawords during this transformative phase by carrying out several build-ups and accelerating its development in Europe, North America and Asia.

    Innovative Office Products Acquires SiS Ergo (Danish Pioneer of Height Adjustable Tables Brings More Robust Product Offering to IOP Customers)

    EASTON, PA. – Feb. 10, 2020 – Innovative Office Products (IOP), parent company to HAT Contract and a leader in ergonomic monitor, tablet, sit-stand mounting products and height adjustable desk solutions for office, healthcare and other specialty workspaces, announced today that it has acquired SiS Ergo. Founded and headquartered in Denmark, SiS Ergo is a manufacturing pioneer of height adjustable tables. Since introducing the first height adjustable desk in 1970, SiS Ergo today manufactures ergonomic electric and non-electric height adjustable tables and accessory products for a broad range of workplace ergonomic needs. SiS Ergo products are known for their Danish-inspired modern and minimalistic aesthetic, superior functionality, unique customization options and expert craftsmanship.

    The acquisition of the SiS Ergo brand and its suite of products provides a strong complement to IOP’s existing line of HAT-branded ergonomic office products and immediately creates a broader and more diverse product offering to the market. It also expands IOP’s international footprint with advanced manufacturing capabilities in Denmark and increases sales capabilities across Europe, China and Southeast Asia.

    “With the addition of SiS Ergo and its Danish design roots, we have a truly unique and inspiring product solution for the contract marketplace,” said IOP CEO Dave Fox. “What’s more, SiS Ergo’s ability to offer customized product solutions, short lead times and first-rate customer service aligns perfectly to our existing business approach. We are excited to have SiS Ergo as part of our Innovative Office Products family.” 

    “It is apparent that our companies share a passion for innovative design, product quality and exceptional customer service,” said SiS Ergo Principal Owner Claus Hansson. “We’re looking forward to leveraging our expertise in customized solutions and Danish aesthetics with the additional resources from IOP. We see tremendous opportunities to accelerate the business and meet the continued needs of the marketplace globally.”

    Under the terms of the transaction, Hansson will now report to Fox. SiS Ergo President Scott McPartlin will report jointly to Fox and IOP General Manager, Vice President of Sales Jeff Wolber. The SiS Ergo brand name will remain, as will its manufacturing operations in Denmark. In the U.S., SiS Ergo will maintain its headquarters in Londonderry, N.H., continuing to serve its customers through its current sales force.

    Additionally, both Hansson and McPartlin will become minority shareholders of IOP’s holding company, joining a private equity consortium led by Cathay Capital along with IOP management team shareholders.

    “We are thrilled to welcome Claus and Scott to the IOP family. The addition of SiS Ergo will allow us to serve a much broader customer base within existing and new markets.  We are looking forward to IOP’s expanded market position given its comprehensive product and service range that addresses ergonomic needs across the office, healthcare and specialty workspace environments,” said Mark Woods, Partner and Head of North American Private Equity at Cathay Capital.

    Mingpo Cai, Founder and President of Cathay Capital, commented, “We are excited to partner with the talented team at SiS Ergo, as they will help further fuel IOP’s international expansion strategy in Europe, China and Southeast Asia while deepening our presence in North America.”
