Rockwell Automation celebrates collaboration with Low Voltage Switchboards
February 2017, News


Rockwell Automation sub-Saharan Africa is marking seven years of successful collaboration with panel and cabinet assembler, Low Voltage Switchboards. It is a collaboration that leverages increased market competitiveness by maximising the capabilities of the industrial automation specialist to package its IEC-rated drive and control equipment in tailored, fully compliant panel technology solutions to industrial markets in sub-Saharan Africa. The fruits of this collaboration are today seen in some of the largest mining and industrial projects across the region.

The association includes the assembly of Rockwell Automation switch and control gear in Low Voltage Switchboards’ modular panel and cabinet configurations.

“Our collaboration with Low Voltage Switchboards broadens our project delivery capabilities with synergies from both sides,” explains Rockwell Automation’s Power and Components business manager Adrian van Wyk. “As Rockwell Automation, we supply a product and the technical ability to deliver solutions required from a customer perspective. Low Voltage Switchboards then integrates this into a structure so that the solution meets both customer and local specifications. It’s an integral part of increasing the competitiveness of Rockwell Automation in delivering full-scale projects that meet local end user and application-specific standards and quality requirements.”

The association demonstrates Rockwell Automation sub-Saharan Africa’s continuing strategy to align with independent suppliers to facilitate attractive, competitive and innovative product solutions to industrial end users. “We seek out strategic alliances and collaborators that fit with Rockwell Automation’s view of maximum quality standards through a solution with maximum compliance,” continues van Wyk.

In a company like Low Voltage Switchboards, with a track record of over 18 years, Rockwell Automation has an independent panel building agent that leverages its knowledge of regional industrial applications to supply customised solutions to the specific requirements of each industry and workspace.

“Low Voltage Switchboards is an SABS-certified assembler of IEC 60439- and 61439-compliant electrical switchboards, aligning ourselves with the CUBIC modular panel system brand,” explains the company’s operations director Stephan Smit. “These systems provide solutions for main distribution boards, marine panels, MCCs, fully withdrawable systems, PLC panels, 19” modular racks and desks in a range of steels”.
