October 12, 2016

It is our great pleasure to announce that Piedmont Automation has joined the iAutomation group. We are very excited to become part of iAutomation, an innovation leader in our field. Through this combination, we have created a unique strategic opportunity by combining Piedmont Automation’s 20 year history of expertise and unparalleled service with iAutomation’s expansive footprint and capabilities. Piedmont and iAutomation have built a foundation on bringing innovation to our customers and we will remain focused on that ideal, and look to strengthen and build on our offerings to deliver even greater value.


Since 1984, iAutomation has been providing premiere products and services along the East Coast from Maine to South Carolina, and this is an exciting partnership that will offer innovative solutions that are outside of our previous capabilities, including a broader product portfolio and custom assembly services. We are partnering with iAutomation because they share the same values and understanding of technology trends that help our customers become leaders within their respective markets.


Our combined organization is committed to maintaining automation excellence and strong customer relationships throughout the integration process and providing you with the excellent level of service and product quality that you have come to expect. A dedicated team from across the organization will ensure that the transition period is seamless for you while seeking new ways to improve overall service levels.


This change will in no way disrupt our normal working relationships and there will be no immediate change to the way business is transacted. Our name, address and all contact details will remain intact. And finally, your satisfaction is very important to us, and we want to hear from you. Should you have any comments, questions or concerns, please contact a member of the integration management team by sending an email to info@piedmontautomation.com and we will respond to you promptly.


We at Piedmont Automation are delighted with our new venture, and look forward to passing on the benefits of this new partnership to you, our loyal customers.

Automation Fun Fact of the Month

A conveyor manufacturer will usually create a belt that has rather low speed so that the materials don’t fly off the transit. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, a mine in Germany uses a conveyor belt that transports items at 900 meters per minute! This is the fastest belt found on any roller conveyor. You can find this conveyor on spreaders in the Rhenish lignite miles in Germany. They feature an active impact protection system and measure almost 10ft in width.
