Beckhoff Automation Opens California Training and Support Center

October 132004
New facility to become focal point of service for Beckhoff customers in California and surrounding states

MINNEAPOLIS, October 13, 2004 – In order to support its rapidly expanding business in California and other western states, Beckhoff Automation announced today the opening of a California product training and support center. The new regional office is located between strong Beckhoff markets in Los Angeles and San Diego.

The facility will be used primarily to train Beckhoff customers in automated control system design and programming. This includes industrial PCs, I/O, motion, fieldbus network product integration and maintenance, IEC 61131-3 PC based control, TwinCAT motion control software programming and, in 2005, implementing EtherCAT technology.

“Providing strong, regional customer support has always been one of Beckhoff’s top priorities,” says Graham Harris, President of Beckhoff Automation. “With the new training and support facility, strategically located between Los Angeles and San Diego, our customers in California and nearby states can get local classroom training and support and stay closer to home.”

This new training facility opens shortly after the July 2004 opening of Beckhoff’s new North American headquarters. The new headquarters has 100 percent more warehouse space and greatly expanded engineering and repair departments.
