Remtron Automation has signed an agreement with Schneider Electric, positioning it as the sole Certified Industrial Automation Distributor for the firm in Australia. The focus of this newfound partnership is to accelerate expansion in the Industrial project business, thus ensuring an increased number of Schneider Electric customers gain access to specialised support for industrial projects throughout the entire country.

Schneider Electric's Certified Industrial Automation Distributor programme was created to train and equip experienced industrial automation distributors, transforming them into specialist partners. The newly formed strategic partnership between Schneider Electric and Remtron Automation aims to unlock a higher value for Schneider Electric's industrial consumers in Australia.

Remtron's expertise as an industrial distributor makes it a vital extension of Schneider Electric's industrial automation business on home soil. The partnership allows Remtron to independently manage end-to-end demand creation and product fulfilment, thereby deciphering and delivering added value to Schneider Electric's customer base.

With Remtron's primary access to Schneider Electric's industrial automation, power products, and final distribution technologies, its primary approach will be to boost growth in the Industrial project business. The novel distributor model promises to enable a broader Schneider Electric customer base to receive high-level specialised support for industrial projects all over Australia, including remote and regional areas.

Carlos Urbano, Vice President of Industry, Pacific Zone at Schneider Electric, expressed that Remtron's strong network and customer-focused approach position them as the perfect partner to enhance the accessibility of Schneider Electric's top-notch automation solutions. The collaboration aims to bring these advanced solutions closer to customers, enabling them to achieve higher levels of competitiveness and growth.

Carlos Urbano said, "Remtron's established network and customer-centric approach make it the ideal partner to bring Schneider Electric's top-tier automation solutions closer to our customers, empowering them to unlock new levels of competitiveness and growth."

Urbano highlighted that the partnership with Remtron allows Schneider Electric to expand its influence, ensuring that a broader range of businesses in Australia can benefit from the innovative products and services offered by Schneider Electric.

"By partnering with Remtron, we are significantly extending our reach and ensuring that even more businesses across Australia can leverage the power of Schneider Electric's innovative products and services," said Urbano.

Expressing his delight, Adrian Matthews, Managing Director of Remtron, said, "Our team is pleased to be partnering with Schneider Electric to deliver its comprehensive range of industrial automation solutions to the market. We possess the expertise, coverage, and the superior technology solutions to ensure Remtron's success in solving complex problems for industrial organisations."

The collaboration between Remtron Automation and Schneider Electric not only promises an outright win for all industrial customers across Australia but also adds immense value to Schneider's industrial clientele in the country. Support from the partnership is readily available for all of Schneider Electric's industrial customers across Australia.
