After 25 years in the heart of Blackburn, Rockwell Automation has moved its South Pacific headquarters to Mountain Highway in Bayswater.
The $4 million facility provides a customer training centre to support local and regional industry and conduct proof-of-concept demonstrations to clients. It also includes a dedicated project engineering staging area along with a test and repair facility.
“Bayswater is an ideal location for access to both local and regional customers. The new facility provides space for the growing team at Rockwell Automation and includes a Customer Briefing Room featuring a nine metre wide display wall focussing on Plant Wide Optimisation and Machine Builder Performance,” said Twain Drewett, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Rockwell Automation.
Earlier in March, the company hosted Rockwell Automation on the Move. Greg Combet MP, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and Industry and Innovation opened this two-day event at Melbourne Park Function Centre. The event will then progress to Sydney (2-3 May), Brisbane (22-23 May) and Perth (6-7 June).
