“Our investment in simulators for a diverse range of OEM’s machines is increasing, driven by demand from our customers.  Immersive has always and will continue to be focused foremost on the needs of our customers, most of whom operate mixed OEM fleets. Immersive Technologies’ acquisition by Komatsu will not change our strategy, we will continue to support machines from all OEM’s, that’s what our customers expect,” says Wayde Salfinger, executive director of marketing at Immersive Technologies.
