Rockwell surveys Guam for opportunity

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Rockwell Automation is on Guam, hoping to capitalize on the military buildup and perhaps even help the Guam Waterworks Authority with its water and wastewater needs automating its system.  Rockwell provides automation control and information solutions for companies to perform at its best.  From standalone, industrial components to enterprise-wide integrated systems, their solutions can be utilized across a wide range of industries.

Rockwell Automation sales associate K.K. Go told KUAM News, "We actually manufacture automation solutions from company supply anything from push button to total solutions it can control power station or manufacture milk powder or cocoa powder."

Their global capabilities extend across 80 countries and include a partner network of more than 5,600 regional and global specialists in distribution, system integration and product referencing.  Likewise, some of their clients should also sound familiar.  "One of our clients, for example, is Nestle.  Another company is Kraft, they make cheese," said Go.

On Guam they're hoping to provide automated solutions for GWA and improvements needed in water distribution and wastewater services.  "If you treat wastewater, you need to comply with standards make sure you treat water when it heads back out to sea, and wont damage coral and stuff like that we have systems to make sure that complies," said Go.  "When you treat water to consume, you need to make sure it's safe."

Rockwell automation was on Guam today to participate in an industry fair.
