PROCENTEC, service provider and knowledge partner in the field of PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology, today announced it is opening a new office in Brescia, northern Italy, to enter the Italian PROFIBUS and PROFINET market.
Plans to develop operations in Italy were initiated by the growth of the Italian industrial automation market. The new office, which includes Sales activities, will be PROCENTEC's third office. PROCENTEC will offer its Italian customers innovative, tailor-made solutions to allow them to operate successfully in the field of industrial automation.
According to Pieter Barendrecht, Managing Director at PROCENTEC HQ in the Netherlands: "An additional local branch in Europe is a natural choice for our international development strategy. We are investing resources in the Italian market, because of its huge potential." Italy is the second largest European market for industrial automation and this market has effectively grown by 5% in 2014, reaching an overall volume of 4 billion Euro and is still increasing.
Evelyn Mario, the new Managing Director of PROCENTEC Srl, is enthusiastic about this new challenge: "I have known PROCENTEC for many years and I've always been impressed by their technological innovations and their robust network of experts and distributors. Their strength is the enduring research and development of new products, along with an outstanding level of expertise combined with the human factor." The new Italian branch will be responsible for developing and supporting the PROFIBUS and PROFINET market in Italy and Italian Switzerland for the entire range of PROCENTEC products and services. Brescia has been chosen for its significant location, being well positioned in the northern Italian industrial region
