AT-Automation Becomes Inductive Automation Premier Integrator

Netherlands-Based Integrator Sees Success with Ignition Software Platform

FOLSOM, Calif. (November 8, 2017) — Inductive Automation has designated AT-Automation (ATA) as an Inductive Automation Premier Integrator. This is the highest level of integrator recognized by Inductive Automation.

ATA is a system integrator based in Nederweert, The Netherlands. The company has specialized in automation of production processes for more than 15 years. ATA has worked on projects large and small, improving analysis, optimization, design, automation and more for several types of companies.

Inductive Automation, based in Folsom, Calif., is a leading industrial automation software company. Its key product — Ignition by Inductive Automation® — is an industrial application platform with tools for building solutions in human-machine interface (HMI), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Ignition is used in virtually every industry, in more than 100 countries.

ATA has become very proficient with the Ignition software platform over the years, and its expertise has been a great benefit to its customers. “When customers want to take their facility to the next level, our advice is to start with Ignition,” said Ard Triepels, director of ATA. “With the powerful solutions Ignition provides for HMI, SCADA, and MES, we can convince our customers Ignition is the way to go. Our SCADA/MES experts often get questions about whether something is possible; with Ignition, the answer is always yes!”

AT-Automation analyzes a customer’s current production process. It also provides engineering services, integration of controls, and much more. While considering itself a small, “family” company, ATA is keeping its core values as it grows. Inductive Automation looks forward to working more closely with ATA, which is becoming a more active member of the Ignition community.

“I congratulate AT-Automation on achieving Premier Integrator status with us,” said Don Pearson, chief strategy officer at Inductive Automation. “We’ve really enjoyed working with Ard Triepels and his team at ATA. The team there has grown in its expertise with Ignition, and is doing impressive projects with it. We’re happy to welcome ATA as a Premier Integrator.”
