Water sector receives specialist support from Siemens Industry

Posted: Friday 24th May 2013

Siemens Industry continues to strengthen its commitment to the UK utilities market with the announcement of a specialist and dedicated team focusing on the needs of the water sector.

The team will provide bespoke support for the sector to address distinct requirements in areas of industrial technology, in particular automation, measurement and drive technologies solutions.

The water sector team will be led by Andrew Reeks, who comments: “Siemens Industry understands the issues facing the water sector and how they can change throughout each AMP period.

“Our specialist team will work in collaboration with the supply chain into the sector and end users to ensure we help them meet the challenges of the future, which covers improving operational efficiencies, reducing carbon, reducing energy costs, and increasing security whilst ensuring total cost of ownership is met.”

Siemens Industry has also created specialist teams for other important industry sectors, such as automotive, food & beverage, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and glass & solar. Each will have their own specific industry sector head.

The sector heads will exploit market potential in high-growth vertical markets across the UK, with a view of bringing intelligence to the entire product development and production process. In doing so, the strategy will also strengthen and significantly expand the technology-based service business.

Siemens Industry will also take the leading position in the merging of virtual and real product development and production structures, whilst looking to identify and grasp growth opportunities in emerging markets.

Brian Holliday, Divisional Director, Siemens Industry Automation says: “We understand that the challenges and issues facing our broad spectrum of industrial clients can vary across sectors. For example, what concentrates the minds of water companies differs significantly from the concerns of the automotive sector. The appointment of the six vertical sector heads places real industry experts at the forefront of Siemens Industry’s focus on assisting our customers.

“This approach will enable us to more clearly demonstrate the contributory value of automation and drive technology to our customers in the context of their immediate challenges, whilst passing on the benefit of a broad supply base and the potential for best practice sharing.

“Working with customers in critical areas like maximising operational efficiencies, creating flexible production platforms, tackling energy and safety-related challenges and helping realise the benefits of technology investment to drive productivity continues to be our primary remit. Our expert vertical sector heads and strengthened teams of sector specialists will help us to continue to drive this focus forward.”
