Omron Automation Americas recently announced the regional winners of their 2018 fiscal year’s Distributor of the Year awards. This distinction recognizes Omron’s top channel partners for excellence in revenue growth, local engagement, expertise and solution selling. Southern Controls, Calvek and Taylor Fluid Systems took this year's top honors.
Southern Controls, a company specializing in automation and control technology, marks its second consecutive year as a winning distributor. On August 6, Omron Automation Americas executives Robb Black, CEO and COO, and Mark Sadie, VP of US and Strategic Sales, presented the award to the Southern Controls executive management team, which included Joe Davis, Mark Grooms, Scott Davis, Alan Davis and Chris Tolliver.
Calvek is a company that offers full-scale automation solutions, as well as other smaller-scale projects and products. According to Mauricio Blanc, Omron’s executive director of the Latin American region, the partnership with Calvek has been a strong enabler of the company’s growth in Mexico. "In the past year, we have strengthened our collaboration with Calvek, and both teams are working closely together to better position Omron’s technology and provide best-in-class services to our customers in the Bajio region," said Blanc.
In the Canadian region, the Distributor of the Year award goes to Taylor Fluid Systems (TFS), a distributor of automation, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. TFS has been in business since 1976 and currently has three locations in southwestern Ontario.
