Siemens announces expanded Solutions Partner program

LAS VEGAS, June 6, 2006 – Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. today announced its enhanced Solution Partner Program during the 2006 Siemens Automation Summit held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, June 6-8. The expanded program joins Siemens' global technology solutions and our partners' system integration expertise to provide turn key applications for customers around the world.

As part of the expanded global program, more than 30 Solutions Partner system integrators are gathering in the Summit’s Partner Pavilion to share their extensive technical knowledge and process engineering expertise with Siemens customers from across the U.S. Each partner has expertise in one or more industry segments, including food and beverage, automotive, chemical, cement, glass and pharmaceutical.

“Our Solution Partners are critical to the Siemens business strategy,” said Tom Kopanski, Vice President, Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. “They leverage Siemens products to meet customers' needs in specific industry segments. They also expand our program integration and application engineering coverage area, giving our customers greater access to process knowledge, regulatory compliance and technical service.”

The Siemens Solution Partner program offers specialized training covering the wide breadth of Siemens products. New partners are developed into capable "industry specialists" by receiving business plan and lead generation assistance. Siemens also provides partners with specialized technical and project support.

“The solid value of these providers is supported by their strong knowledge of Siemens products and technologies coupled with their deep domain expertise,” Kopanski said. “By teaming up with these integrators and synchronizing our global resources, Siemens is well positioned to deliver complete turn-key solutions following industry standards and addressing regulatory concerns for both technology and project management.”
