In keeping with their commitment to New Zealand and Australian industry, Rockwell Automation have formed an Industry Solutions team. The team is made up of experts specialising in a range of industry sectors and it aims to coordinate the combined resources of Rockwell Automation sales, engineering, support and product groups, to optimise client outcomes.
As Industry Solutions Manager, Corrie Van Rensburg leads the team. “The primary driver is to facilitate more efficient use of specialist resources within the business, and to leverage the resources and capability to ultimately provide the most economical packaged solution to the client,” he said.
“The Rockwell Automation Industry Solutions team members will take a leadership role within their particular industries, attending conferences, round tables and information sessions to streamline knowledge sharing and establish business relationships.”
The Industry Solutions team members form the focal point for client relationships and information flow in their so-called “vertical” industries. In addition, they have a mandate to support “horizontal” solutions, including safety, process automation, and power and energy management. They are based in Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland,
“The Industry Solutions team will also help shape the future by feeding information back into the company’s product development teams,” Van Rensburg says.
“This will aid us in solving industrial challenges and help ensure Rockwell Automation product development reflects key industry demands.”
