Why Local Automation?

The automation industry is a complex, highly-specialized industry.   A single automated machine can contain hundreds of intricate mechanical and electronic devices, each requiring specialized training to install, service, and support.   Businesses that invest in automation understand the complexity of their investment and, as a result, often insist on purchasing automation products exclusively from manufacturers with an extensive, local support network.

The purpose of LocalAutomation.com is to bring together 'buyers' and 'sellers' of industrial automation technologies by providing powerful online tools to both groups.
