Beckhoff Automation, Savage, Minn., opened a new sales office in Carlsbad, Calif. The 2,000-square-foot office provides sales and application support for Beckhoff customers in Greater San Diego.

With a large training room, the office will provide numerous educational opportunities for customers to increase expertise with PC-based controls and EtherCAT industrial Ethernet technology. The office is located off Interstate 5, halfway between the San Diego and Santa Ana airports and near regional train depots.

“Adding a location in Greater San Diego boosts service coverage for Beckhoff in a way that complements the company’s existing Silicon Valley technical center in San Jose,” says Aurelio Banda, president and CEO. “Beckhoff continues to expand local support for users of PC-based automation and control solutions, providing significant benefits to customers in numerous industries by extending our reach.”
