Oct. 11, 2019
The transaction expands Rockwell’s consulting and systems integration scale in the fast-growing industrial IoT transformation market.

Rockwell Automation on Oct. 1 announced that it has acquired Mestech Services, a global provider of manufacturing execution systems/manufacturing operations management, digital solutions consulting, and systems integration services.

Mestech is a Rockwell Automation -recognized systems integrator with extensive experience applying Rockwell’s software-based solutions within the manufacturing technology space. The company offers technology consulting services, solutions design and deployment, support, plant asset management, and staffing solutions for discrete, hybrid, and process applications across multiple industries, including life sciences and automotive.

Founded in 2008, Mestech is headquartered in Pune, India with operations in Germany and the United States.

“The acquisition of Mestech expands our capabilities to profitably grow information solutions and connected services globally and accelerate Rockwell’s ability to help our customers execute digital transformation initiatives,” commented Matthew Fordenwalt, vice president and general manager, Systems & Solutions Business, for Rockwell Automation.

Fordenwalt added, “India is one of Rockwell’s fastest growing markets and Mestech’s footprint and expertise will enable us to implement solutions faster, helping our customers increase their connectivity, efficiency, and productivity. At the same time, by joining the Rockwell family, Mestech will be able to leverage Rockwell’s products and solutions in the areas of control, process, power information solutions and industrial IoT, including our FactoryTalk Innovation Suite, powered by PTC, in order to help customers develop the best possible solutions while minimizing risk.”

The transaction is not expected to have a material impact on Rockwell’s 2020 financial results.

“We are excited about our future with Rockwell Automation, which will enable us to help more customers simplify their industrial transformations and accelerate their production timelines,” said Yatin Sankholkar, managing director at Mestech. “Over the past decade, we have grown Mestech into one of the world’s leading manufacturing execution service providers, with a focus on technology consulting and software implementation for managing manufacturing operations. By joining forces with Rockwell, we will be able to expand our market access and offer more customers the benefit of our strong industry expertise.”
