John Doran, automation manager at Rexroth, is leading the expansion in Ireland. He said: “This is a significant investment by Rexroth, Portlaoise is a fantastic location for us to support all the major OEMs, machine builders and end users. We can shorten lead times and provide technical support more easily as the new headquarters will be the hub for Ireland with local component stock and custom-build facilities.”

The Irish headquarters is staffed by a team of specialists in automation, including electric drives and controls engineers, pneumatics engineers and hydraulics engineers, as well as workshop technicians, service engineers and administrators.

A training room, which can accommodate up to 40 people, is also housed within the facility. Rexroth intends to run a series of comprehensive training courses and seminars in hydraulics, pneumatics and control technologies throughout 2009.

“Rexroth’s vision is to be Ireland’s best supplier of automation components, complete system solutions and services,” concludes Doran. “What’s more, our global presence means that OEMs, machine builders and end users can be supported using Rexroth’s infrastructure all over the world.”
