ROCKWELL Automation has strengthened its presence in Western Australia with the unveiling of its new premises in Myaree, Perth. Officially opened in January this year, the new office allows Rockwell Automation to provide customers in the region with improved services and support.
According to Rockwell Automation Western Australian state manager, Evert Jonker, increased project activity in the region created the need for the company’s new Western Australian headquarters.
“The growth of pharmaceutical and water/wastewater industries, along with Western Australia’s strong mining, and oil and gas activity, has seen demand for our services triple over the last three years,” explained Jonker. “The new office better enables local customers to leverage Rockwell Automation’s global experience in these industries.”
The new premises house an engineering and business development team along with a services department providing technical and commercial assistance to both local and remote customers.
“Western Australia’s geography presents inherent communication and logistic supply challenges,” said Jonker. “Now with Rockwell Automation’s new Perth office, our Western Australian clients have improved access to products, services and training programs.” The company’s industry-renowned training courses, where professional instructors detail installation, programming and maintenance of Rockwell Automation hardware and software, will now be presented at the new Perth office throughout the year.
In addition to Rockwell Automation’s value-add services, the new Perth office will continue to support products crucial to engineering activity in the region. The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex range of medium- and low-voltage AC variable speed drives, and Rockwell Automation’s “Integrated Architecture” represent the cornerstone of the company’s activities in Western Australia.
Providing performance-enhancing motor control in an easy-to-use, compact package the PowerFlex range of AC drives is ideal for mining applications such as incline conveyors, crushers and pumps. The industry-first, Integrated Architecture from Rockwell Automation, presents a single system for integrated multi-discipline control, visualisation and information.
“Its fully scalable, information-enabled environment presents a flexible solution to Western Australia’s emerging and established industries, enabling streamlined control system programming, integration, maintenance and expansion,” explained Jonker. “With our new Perth office complementing our expansive range of products, Rockwell Automation can better provide tailored engineering solutions and a more comprehensive service for our Western Australian customers.”
