Mar. 3, 2017 – Independent electrical distributor Gerrie Electric has been announced as Endress+Hauser Canada’s latest Authorized Channel Partner.
The parties say the move, which leverages the strategic relationship between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser Canada, is a “major development” in the process automation sector in the country.
Gerrie Electric can now provide its process automation customers with “new cost-saving opportunities through the enhanced integration of Endress+Hauser’s measurement technology with the Rockwell Automation platform. The pre-tested and validated designs between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser offerings help reduce the costs associated with bringing new measuring points or a new production line into the manufacturing facility.”
As well, customers of Gerrie Electric will also have the opportunity to enjoy a single source provider, enabling them to acquire the PlantPAx system, a Distributed Control System with field instrumentation and measurement solutions.
“The evolution to Industrie 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things offers limitless opportunity for Canadian companies,” said Anthony Varga, general manager at Endress+Hauser. “Thanks to the strength of our partnership with Rockwell Automation and Gerrie Electric’s expertise, we’ll be able to go to greater lengths to help modernize the Canadian manufacturing sector.”
“Enabling big data analysis and the expansion of the ‘Connected Enterprise’ is a boon for the Canadian manufacturing sector and is helping our customers compete on a global scale,” added Heather Gerrie, co-president and CEO at Gerrie Electric. “This partnership strengthens our ability to remain at the forefront in providing the required products, solutions and services on which Canadian manufactures depend.”
