Beckhoff Automation has opened a regional sales and support office in Plano, Texas. A significant move in expanding local customer service capabilities, this new 2,600 square-foot office will provide high-level sales and engineering expertise, particularly for customers in the south-central United States.

The eighth such regional facility in the U.S., the Plano facility includes sales offices, engineering labs and training facilities. Customers throughout the area now enjoy the convenience of attending more local training sessions focused on Beckhoff hardware and software solutions, as well as various areas of programming such as PLC, motion control, safety technology, IoT connectivity and more. “This new regional office in Plano is the latest investment by Beckhoff in North America to intensify our local presence for customers,” explains Aurelio Banda, CEO and President, Beckhoff Automation. “We are also opening a new office in the Cincinnati area, with additional offices and expansions for Beckhoff Canada and Beckhoff Mexico to follow shortly, further enhancing our local footprint in North America.”

“The new Plano facility fills a growing need for more local training and support in the southern U.S.,” adds Joe Martin, Regional Manager, South Region at Beckhoff Automation. “Whether supporting oil and gas applications, manufacturing, machine builders or other industrial applications, this region offers outstanding opportunities for expanded customer outreach and improved local support for their operations. PC- and EtherCAT-based control solutions have seen impressive growth in many industries, given the inherent flexibility and high performance. Increasing our local, customer-facing presence in this way demonstrates Beckhoff’s commitment to serving these industries. It also provides significant advantages to customers in the region and an avenue to get more powerful automation solutions into the hands of innovative American companies.”
