AN ISLE of Wight company is celebrating more than two decades since the launch of its flagship software product, Exaquantum.

Over the past 20 years, Yokogawa Marex's Exaquantum has become one of the most comprehensive plant information management systems available for process industries worldwide.

The software collects and integrates information from a diversity of different sources within an organisation.

It enables global production facilities such as oil refineries and chemical/petrochemical plants to access all their operational data in a clear and precise format.

Yokogawa Marex is part of Yokogawa Electric Corporation ­— a major global process automation company based in Tokyo, Japan.

Yokogawa Marex is recognised as a global centre of excellence for the development, promotion and support of leading-edge innovative software and IT solutions, including alarm, safety, and production management software.

Based in Cowes, it has a portfolio of more than 30 software solutions, with as many as 3,000 Exaquantum software licenses deployed in countries all over the world.

To continue to meet the demands of the global market and its customers, Yokogawa Marex has been expanding over recent years, and has significantly increased the number of staff working on the development, promotion and selling of Exaquantum.

This has created a number of job opportunities on the Island, and the company is always on the lookout for talented software engineers who are keen to adapt and develop their skills with its experienced teams.

Wayne Matthews, divisional director at Yokogawa Marex, said: “20 years of Exaquantum is a fantastic achievement, delivering safe and efficient plant operations for our customers over many years.

"We look forward to the next 20 years, as we continue to innovate and improve our software solutions and deliver value to our customers globally."
