Rockwell Automation has acquired Automation Control Products (ACP), a provider of centralised thin client, remote desktop and server management software. ACP’s two core products, ThinManager and Relevance, provide manufacturing and industrial leaders with visual display and software solutions to manage information and streamline workflows for a more connected manufacturing environment.
According to Rockwell, the acquisition supports the company’s growth strategy to help customers increase global competitiveness through The Connected Enterprise – a vision that connects information across the plant floor to the rest of the enterprise. It is accelerated by the Industrial Internet of Things and advances in technologies, such as data analytics, remote monitoring and mobility.
“With ACP’s industry-leading products now in our portfolio, we can provide new capabilities for workers as the manufacturing environment becomes more digital and connected,” said Frank Kulaszewicz, senior vice president of architecture and software at Rockwell.
“We are a perfect addition to Rockwell Automation’s industrial automation offerings that aim to increase reliability, productivity and security as well as lower energy and maintenance costs while implementing sustainable technology for leading global manufacturers,” added Matt Crandell, CEO of ACP.
