ABB Group has com­pleted its takeover of Ber­necker + Rainer In­dus­trie-Elek­tronik Ge­sellschaft m.b.H. (B&R), which fo­cuses on soft­ware­based, open-ar­chi­tec­ture so­lu­tions for ma­chine and fac­tory au­to­ma­tion world­wide.

“With B&R now com­bined with ABB, we in ABB Print­ing will be able to pro­vide you an un­matched, com­pre­hen­sive in­dus­trial au­to­ma­tion of­fer­ing – glob­ally and across the en­tire spec­trum of tech­nol­ogy and soft­ware so­lu­tions around mea­sure­ment, con­trol, ac­tu­a­tion, ro­bot­ics, elec­tri­fi­ca­tion and dig­i­tal­iza­tion,” said a press re­lease from ABB.

B&R of­fers a broad spec­trum of prod­ucts in PLCs, In­dus­trial PCs and servo mo­tion as well as its soft­ware and so­lu­tion suite for ma­chine and fac­tory au­to­ma­tion that will be com­bined with ABB’s in­dus­trial au­to­ma­tion of­fer­ing, the re­lease said.

A newly formed busi­ness unit – Ma­chine & Fac­tory Au­to­ma­tion – will op­er­ate within ABB’s In­dus­trial Au­to­ma­tion di­vi­sion, head­quar­tered in Eggels­berg, Aus­tria, and led by B&R’s Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Hans Wim­mer. ABB’s PLC and Au­to­ma­tion Builder ac­tiv­i­ties are also part of the new busi­ness unit.
