Treotham merges with Automation Equipment to better serve market

Treotham New Zealand has announced the merger of its business operations to offer customers even more support as well as a larger range of products to provide a more complete solution.

Treotham has acquired the Automation Equipment assets, staff and customer contacts and the merged business will operate under Treotham Automation.

Treotham New Zealand, established in 2010, is described as a leading supplier of high-quality electrical components and products to a wide range of industrial markets. Its years of experience in industrial automation and long-term partnerships with key suppliers including igus, Kabeltec, PMA, Wittenstein and more, provide a market leading position.

“Automation Equipment offers an exciting opportunity for Treotham to strengthen and expand its service offering in the industrial automation market,” says Alec Stanley, national sales manager of Treotham NZ. “With their range of high-quality products and skilled staff, the acquisition of Automation Equipment supports Treotham’s strategy to provide customers with a total solution throughout the New Zealand market.”

Wendy Garrett, manager of Automation Equipment says:“This is a very positive change for all our customers across New Zealand, expanding their product selection and support available to them.”

Wendy will join Treotham as business development manager.

The expanded business will operate out of both Auckland and Hamilton, ‘making it even more convenient for customers”. With the introduction of the new range of products from suppliers such as Schmalz (vacuum technology), Pneumax (pneumatics), Interroll (conveyor components) and others, Treotham Automation is now able to offer customers across New Zealand a more complete solution.

With their increased support and engineering staff, Treotham and Automation Equipment are “able to combine their years of experience to offer even better customer service and greater opportunity for technical visits enabling stronger engineering support.”

The merger is effective from the 1st of August.
