Michelin Group and Rockwell Automation sign preferred partner agreement
07 February 2012
The Michelin Group has signed a four-year agreement that makes Rockwell Automation their preferred partner for supplying industrial automation and controls to all of its tyre manufacturing sites worldwide. The agreement includes the undertaking of projects by Rockwell Automation on behalf of Michelin, such as complete turnkey projects; the manufacturing of electrical enclosures; and the extension of Rockwell Automation training services, support and repair to Michelin installations worldwide.
“Our partnership with Michelin goes far beyond a supplier-customer relationship,” said Hedwig Maes, president of the European and Middle East region for Rockwell Automation. “Rockwell Automation will now fully support Michelin’s global growth strategy. Our two-tiered support model features a global account team close to Michelin headquarters, and a worldwide network of local Rockwell Automation resources that support day-to-day operations and maintenance of Michelin’s production plants, whether they’re located in Europe, the US, Latin America or the Asia-Pacific region.”
