Endress+Hauser Canada signs distribution deals

Endress+Hauser Canada Ltd., Burlington, ON, has concluded an agreement with independent electrical distributor Lumen as an Authorized Channel Partner. The move, which builds on the strategic relationship between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser Canada Ltd., is a major development in the process automation sector in Canada.

Lumen can now provide its process automation customers with new cost-saving opportunities through the enhanced integration of Endress+Hauser’s measurement technology with the Rockwell Automation platform. The pre-tested and validated designs between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser offerings help reduce the costs associated with bringing new measuring points or a new production line into the manufacturing facility.

Lumen customers will also have access to a singlesource provider, enabling them to acquire the Plant- PAx® system, a modern distributed control system Lumen was founded in St. Eustache in 1962 and has been part of the worldwide Sonepar Group since 1984. It has a new ultra-modern 385,000 sq. ft. distribution center and its network of over 35 branches allows deliveries anywhere in Québec within 24 hours.

Similar agreements were signed earlier this year with electrical distributor Westburne in both Ontario and Saskatchewan. Westburne is part of Rexel Canada Electrical Inc.
