Milwaukee-based Rockwell Automation has acquired Mestech Services, an India-based provider of systems integration services.

Mestech was already a Rockwell recognized systems integrator with experience applying the company’s software solutions in manufacturing settings.

Matthew Fordenwalt, vice president and general manager of Rockwell Automation’s systems and solutions business, said the acquisition would expand the company’s ability to grow its informational solutions and connected services business while also helping customers execute digital transformation initiatives.

“India is one of Rockwell’s fastest growing markets and Mestech’s footprint and expertise will enable us to implement solutions faster, helping our customers increase their connectivity, efficiency, and productivity,” Fordenwalt said.

Mestech is headquartered in Pune, India and also has offices in Germany and Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The company’s services include technology consulting, solutions design and deployment, plant asset management and staffing solutions for discrete, hybrid and process applications, particularly in the life sciences and automotive industries.

“We are excited about our future with Rockwell Automation, which will enable us to help more customers simplify their industrial transformations and accelerate their production timelines,” said Yatin Sankholkar, managing director of Mestech.
