Oct. 4, 2016 – Rockwell Automation says it has acquired Maverick Technologies in a move to “expand domain knowledge and help deliver innovative control and information solutions” to customers.
“Industrial control and information solutions are most effective when they result from close collaboration between a knowledgeable supplier and the user,” said Ken Champa, Rockwell Automation senior vice president of control products and solutions. “The combination of our global industrial automation leadership with Maverick’s platform-independent domain expertise will help our customers reduce complexity and realize unprecedented productivity.”
According to Rockwell Automation, the acquisition will help support its growth strategy to “help customers increase global competitiveness by adopting The Connected Enterprise, a vision that connects information across the plant floor with the entire enterprise to drive new business value.
