Ursviken, Inc. and Pivatic Inc., have North American sales and service headquarters located in Elgin, Illinois. Since 2005, both companies have been a majority-owned unit of Sentica Partners Oy, an independent private equity company based in Helsinki, Finland. Ursviken’s factory in Northern Sweden was founded in 1885 and ever since there has been a long line of innovations that have made Ursviken a global leader in CNC press brake and automation technology. Today, Ursviken focuses on heavy-duty, precision press brakes from 320 tons to 10,000+ tons, with a special focus on automated solutions for the production of metal utility poles, bridge girders, crane arms, and other long, difficult parts made out of heavy plate and requiring extremely accurate, repeatable bending performance. Ursviken is proud to claim the title for building the largest single press brake in the world, at 2,500 tons with a 20.8 meter (over 68 feet!) bed. Pivatic Oy has a long-standing reputation for providing the most efficient, accurate, and innovative fully automatic coil and blank-fed punching, blanking, and bending solutions. By designing and building much of their own equipment to meet the strict needs of their customers, Pivatic can provide complete, truly turnkey production lines that will reliably produce parts for many years, and can then be updated to the latest control and drive technologies to ensure many more years of reliable production. Pivatic also collaborates with a select group of partner suppliers to maximize productivity and reduce costs. These processes can include welding, assembly, roll-forming, stacking and palletizing, application of protective film, and many others. Pivatic lines are located worldwide in the factories of some of the biggest producers of products such as HVAC wrappers and cabinets, elevator doors and interiors, steel doors and frames, electrical enclosures and bus bars, conveyor and material handling equipment, office furniture, and kitchen appliances.
