Event partner, Rockwell Automation has disclosed details of its new collaboration with Michelin. It has been awarded a four-year contract to equip all the Michelin Group’s factories worldwide.

“We’re honored to receive this preferred partner agreement. It caps a 35-year relationship with Michelin marked by innovative collaboration. Thank you to Michelin for being a great customer and partner,” said Thomas Donato, Rockwell Automation’s president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Rockwell Automation’s global resource network includes an account team near Michelin’s headquarters in Clermont-Ferrand, France and offices near Michelin plants in Greenville, South Carolina, and Shanghai, China. These support day-to-day operations and provide service to Michelin’s manufacturing facilities.

Rockwell is sponsoring the visitor relaxation area at Tire Technology Expo, where it has experts on hand to discuss its automation technologies.
