CC-Link Partner Association opens office in Mexico City

April 15, 2016 – Responding to demand by Mexican manufacturers for local CC-Link service, training and support, the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) announced that it has opened a branch office in Mexico City. Industrial automation users of CC-Link technology in Mexico had previously traveled to the U.S. for training. CLPA’s other offices are located in the U.S., China, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

The new office serves all of Mexico including the Bajio region of North-Central Mexico where the CLPA has produced a series of seminars and workshops. The Mexico City location was chosen because of the region’s strong manufacturing base, especially automotive, and food and beverage – sectors in which the CLPA focuses. Located near the bulk of Mexico's industrial workforce, the Bajio region is connected to suppliers in the U.S. and Asia and consumers in the U.S. and Canada.

The CLPA’s plans in Mexico will emphasize support for users, including continuing its series of seminars and workshops. The CLPA also expects to establish relationships with universities and educational institutions in the area so that Mexican students learn about the operation of CC-Link in a classroom setting before joining the industrial automation workforce.

CC-Link is a family of open automation network technologies that facilitates communication of devices from numerous manufacturers, resulting in a fast, deterministic control system. It was originally developed by Mitsubishi Electric and turned over to the CLPA, an independent third party.
