In 2020, Rockwell Automation spent $255 million with diverse suppliers, including small, veteran, minority, women and LGBTQ-owned U.S. enterprises. In support of the company’s supplier diversity strategy of Acquire, Grow and Expand, Rockwell started a new relationship in October 2020 with Magno International, a Latino-owned logistics and supply chain firm. Founded by U.S. Army veteran Raul Pedraza in 1997, Magno focuses on providing services for Fortune 500 companies, government and private companies.
In 2020, Rockwell also started a new relationship with Diversified Supply, an African American-owned maintenance, repair and operations business, and in 2021 with Tax-Air, a veteran-owned, Milwaukee-based air freight trucking company. Rockwell continues to work with Populus Group, a Latino and veteran-owned contract labor firm, and World Wide Technology, an African American-owned global provider of digital strategy, innovative technology, and supply chain solutions.
