An Expanding Network of Application Engineering Specialists in the EMEA Region Gives Customers Access to Best in Class Solutions

SLOUGH … Power management company Eaton has welcomed a new affiliate to its Authorized Lean Solution Partner programme. The contract with panel builder LS Automation GmbH & Co. KG., Bad Laer, Germany, was signed at this year’s leading industrial trade show Hannover Messe. LS Automation, a spinoff company from air flow specialist Schuko H. Schulte-Südhoff GmbH, is an expert in automation technology and specifically commercial HVAC applications.

The partnership with LS Automation is the fifth of its kind in Germany and part of Eaton’s EMEA-wide programme to establish a network of application specialists that work with Eaton to provide customers with easy access to the most effective and integrated solutions. Today, the expertise spans from automation, control and drives technology, to remote control and remote maintenance, to cloud and SCADA systems – thus reaching from the panel to the control centre.

“The partnership is a serious commitment for both parties so it is essential for the success of our programme that we select the right partners”, said Martin Kram, Sales Director Germany at Eaton. “We ensure they are comprehensively trained and engaged in our continuous product development process enabling them to competently consult with customers and provide them with the most suitable solution. Our partners bring to the partnership their vast application engineering expertise and experience in the machine and system building industry.
