Ashling Partners, a world-class innovator in the field of intelligent process automation (IPA), announced today that it has merged with Machina Automation. Ashling Partners acquired Machina, a Texas-based giant in the energy industry, on August 25, 2021. Machina is now known as an Ashling Partners Company.

With the joint effort, both companies will expand their efforts globally to gain control of the intelligent automation ecosystem by leveraging cutting-edge technologies like robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and process intelligence.

Marshall Sied, the co-founder of Ashling Partners, said, “We couldn’t be more excited about the Machina team becoming a part of the Ashling family. The alignment around our process improvement heritage, UiPath-centric capabilities, and vision of a global service provider hyper-focused on hyper-automation made the merger of Ashling Partners and Machina a positive-sum game, but the determining factor was our shared culture. Our core beliefs and principles around the future of work for our clients, our partners, our society, and our people could not be more in sync.”

With an industry-leading track record of establishing and scaling automation programs across multiple industries, Ashling Partners has experience in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, insurance, banking, consumer products, and real estate. Machina’s wide range of experience in energy, healthcare, and manufacturing and distribution represents outstanding growth opportunities for Ashling Partners.

Machina CEO, Doug Wendler, said, “It was an obvious decision for us to join the Ashling team. Our shared vision of becoming the global leader in the hyper-automation market with UiPath at the center, a set of common core values, and complimentary industry and geographical footprints provide a valuable leap forward for our customers, our people, and our company. We are excited about the future for the combined organization.”
