"Within Southeast Asia, we strive to build solid partnerships with local companies as part of our commitment to provide superior value to customers. MCSS has a reputation as a reliable systems integrator and is partnering with us across many Process industries including petrochemicals, oil and gas, waste and water treatment, mining and cement," said Bob Buttermore, Regional Director, Southeast Asia, Rockwell Automation. "Combining our company's industrial automation technology with MCSS' in-depth market knowledge and expertise, we will add measureable value to our customers by supporting their existing investments, as well as helping them plan future projects for optimised return on investment."
Chris Marshall, Market Access Director, Southeast Asia, Rockwell Automation, noted that the company has been eyeing Myanmar to add to Rockwell Automation's other Southeast Asia markets of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
"We are pleased that the time is now right for us to move in and capitalise on its robust economic growth and investment-friendly environment. Since manufacturing constitutes about 20 percent of the country's GDP, with oil and gas, construction, infrastructure and consumer packaged goods being important sectors, Myanmar is a natural expansion market for us. By leveraging MCSS' vast capabilities and experience, Rockwell Automation can now establish a foothold in Myanmar for our industrial automation technologies," he said.
