Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, today announced that Risoul, a company with more than 48 years of experience in innovative solutions for the electrical industry in the Mexican market, has established operations in Spain to become a new distributor for Rockwell Automation in the Catalan market.
The Spanish subsidiary of Risoul, Risoul Ibérica, located in Les Franqueses del Vallès (Barcelona), will sell Rockwell Automation’s full portfolio of products, solutions, and services in Catalonia and will support its customers with a team of engineers that cover field sales, product-application consultancy, and consultancy for machinery builders.
The goal of the partnership is to offer an omnichannel experience to customers in the industrial automation, digitalization, and IIOT technologies domains.
This agreement sees Rockwell Automation extending its current PartnerNetwork™ ecosystem in Spain – which is already highly active – with a company that offers extensive experience in business development for Rockwell Automation in Mexico.
Eric Chalengeas, regional vice president for South Europe at Rockwell Automation, explains: “Risoul is one of the best distributors of Rockwell Automation in Latin America. It knows Rockwell, our products and business model, so its contribution in the Catalan market will be crucial to consolidate the offering of added-value services to the customers.”
According to Gerardo Ayala, CEO of Risoul: “This partnership with Rockwell Automation in Europe extends our successful collaboration in America and allows us to address the Spanish market with excitement and confidence. We want to play our part to expand the efficiency, safety, and profitability of Rockwell projects in Catalonia.”
As a specialist distributor of Rockwell Automation, Risoul will not only sell Rockwell’s automation and control products, but will also focus on analytics, digital engineering, cybersecurity solutions and software in order to provide a complete offering to customers.
Christian Reuter, regional vice president for market access in EMEA at Rockwell Automation, comments: “This agreement between Risoul and Rockwell strengthens our existing PartnerNetwork™ ecosystem in Europe and Spain thanks to the addition of companies that provide a solid experience of the Rockwell ecosystem.”
Both companies have invested in cutting-edge information systems to create a product inventory that support immediate availability. Risoul Ibérica will offer a variety of products with the goal of delivering them within 48 hours, thanks to the support of product availability and proximity logistics management.
