SCHAUMBURG, ILOmron Industrial Automation and Omron Scientific Technologies announced an internal realignment of support for machine automation systems and safeguarding.

The sales and support organizations of the two will report to the same management, while maintaining individual expertise in established areas at their current locations.

The path to market using distributors remains unchanged: Those specializing in either automation or safety will continue with that product portfolio; those distributors authorized for both will support both product categories.

Internal change takes effect April 1.

The goals of the new arrangement include strengthening automation competency; presenting one Omron automation company; providing employee enrichment, and transforming the company.

The realignment consolidates internal management responsibilities for automation and safety sales and support into three regions: US and Canada; Mexico and Latin America; and Brazil.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
