Arduino and DMC Announce System Integrator Partnership to Bring Open Technology to Manufacturing Automation and Embedded Applications

The combination of DMC’s expert system integration services with Arduino’s world-class hardware advances the democratization of open hardware in the industrial automation sector.

Arduino, an open-source hardware pioneer with 32 million active developers worldwide, today announced a strategic partnership with DMC, a consulting firm providing high-caliber engineering and custom software development services for manufacturing, testing and product development organizations worldwide. The partnership unlocks the ability to provide end-to-end commercial solutions, solving advanced automation and product development challenges for enterprise customers deploying Arduino PRO products.

DMC joins Arduino's ecosystem as a Platinum Partner, part of the Arduino System Integrators Partnership Program. The program is designed to fuel growth for professional service companies integrating Arduino technology in commercial projects for enterprise clients. Under the partnership, DMC and Arduino jointly approach projects to accelerate time-to-market and reduce NRE costs.

"We're immensely proud to join the Arduino System Integrator program," said Frank Riordan, DMC's founder and CEO. "This partnership signifies DMC's dedication to pushing the boundaries of innovation. Together, we aim to offer integrated solutions that will revolutionize the way creators and industries approach technology."

The partnership will initially focus on producing commercial solutions for manufacturing, logistic centers, and factories leveraging Arduino's Opta PLC and Portenta Machine Controller, as well as OEM product development incorporating the Portenta and Nicla line of modules for embedded applications.

"For extensive automation and design projects, especially in the growing Arduino PRO ecosystem, DMC stands out as the preferred integrator," said Guneet Bedi, Arduino's Senior Vice President and General Manager. "Our mutual objective is to assist forward-thinking industrial clients in creating and implementing automation and digital initiatives that deliver significant benefits. Arduino and DMC will jointly establish a higher standard for what enterprises can anticipate from open technology."

This announcement marks another strategic step from Arduino to meet the growing demand for Arduino PRO hardware and software technology in enterprise IIoT applications. Other recent notable milestones include a $54M Series B funding round, joining the AWS Partner Network and the expansion of two North American offices to support growing enterprise sales.
