Siemens Announces Global Strategic Collaboration Agreement with CH2M Hill
Siemens has formed a global strategic collaboration agreement with CH2M Hill, a worldwide leader in consulting, design, construction, operations and program management of large-scale projects.
The relationship between the two global companies began last year, when senior automation engineers from CH2M Hill joined more than 150 other guests from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil for Siemens German Business Trip, a special, five-day VIP executive briefing trip timed around the Hannover Fair.
“This partnership brings together the complementary capabilities that both companies can offer to market sectors such as heavy industrial, semiconductor, utilities and oil and gas,” says Scott Macdonald, vice president, industrial sales for Siemens Industry, Inc. “In addition to collaborating on issues such as sustainability and urbanization, through CH2M Hill, Siemens can effectively deliver our innovative technology that will ultimately help end users be more competitive through efficiency and productivity.”
Siemens German Business Trip is a valuable tool in showcasing the company’s wide portfolio. Participants are treated to networking and roundtable discussions, best practices, product demonstrations, and factory tours. Topics include automation, safety and fail-safe PLCs, integrated drive systems, design software and services.
In his report to CH2M Hill’s executive management, senior automation engineering, Steve Blaine, gave Siemens a strong endorsement. “The argument for Siemens is compelling, as the company’s products are used globally, yet supported at the local level with knowledgeable integrators.”
This year, Siemens plans to host its “Hannover Customer Experience,” featuring networking events, executive workshops and an end user factory tour. During the 2013 Hannover Fair, Siemens will be showcasing its capabilities as a partner of choice for the entire production process, from product design through production planning and engineering, to production execution and services.
