Rockwell Automation acquires the largest, independent systems integrator in North America.

Rockwell Automation Inc. has acquired systems integrator Maverick Technologies, strengthening the world's largest industrial automation and information company's expertise in key process and batch applications.

“Industrial control and information solutions are most effective when they result from close collaboration between a knowledgeable supplier and the user,” said Ken Champa, Rockwell Automation senior vice president of Control Products and Solutions. “The combination of our global industrial automation leadership with Maverick's platform-independent domain expertise will help our customers reduce complexity and realize unprecedented productivity.”

Founded in 1999, Maverick identifies suboptimal operations and improves performance for greater safety, efficiency and profitability. It has completed more than 15,000 projects in 46 countries across six continents and was recognized in July 2016 by The Silicon Review as one of its “50 Best Companies to Watch.” The acquisition supports the Rockwell Automation growth strategy to help customers increase global competitiveness by adopting a vision that connects information across the plant floor with the entire enterprise.

“We will continue to deliver our domain expertise, now with the power of a Fortune 500 industrial automation leader at our side,” said Paul Galeski, Maverick founder and CEO. “This creates the best combination available to help uncover the benefits of information that drives performance in process industries.”
