After opening its US subsidiary in Roswell, GA, B&R USA has continuously grown as a sales and support organization through both direct sales offices and B&R’s unique Automation Partner distribution network.

With over 1,300 employees worldwide and more than 120 sales offices in over 50 countries, B&R ranks among the largest privately owned automation manufacturers in the world.
