Beckhoff Automation recently expanded its footprint in the Northeast region with new offices in Greater Boston and Philadelphia. Both locations, strategically selected based on growing customer demands and market share in these areas, will provide additional applications engineering, sales and training resources. New Automation Technology showrooms at the two offices will also offer hands-on experiences with Beckhoff hardware and software for engineers and business leaders.

The Philadelphia Technology Center in Wayne, Pa., comprises about 5,000 square feet while the Boston-area sales and support office, located in Burlington, Mass., occupies 3,500 square feet. Sizable training rooms at each office will offer numerous educational opportunities for Beckhoff customers who want to increase their expertise in PC-based control, advanced motion control, mechatronics and EtherCAT industrial Ethernet technology.

The growing physical presence of Beckhoff has been a key to the company’s continued revenue and market share gains, according to Material Handling & Intralogistics Manager Doug Schuchart. “Beckhoff has become a go-to solutions provider for high-tech companies in the Northeast and beyond, whether they are new start-ups looking for leading-edge solutions or established industry leaders migrating from outmoded architectures,“ said Schuchart, who is based at the Philadelphia office and oversaw both projects

In addition to expansions in Boston and Philadelphia, Beckhoff plans to open several new North American facilities in 2019 and 2020 in or near Los Angeles, Houston, Denver, Milwaukee and Orlando, Fla., as well as Mexico City and Vancouver, B.C. Along with its U.S. headquarters in Savage, Minn. (Minneapolis area), Beckhoff maintains regional offices in Charlotte, N.C.; Mason, Ohio (Cincinnati area); Woodridge, Ill. (Chicago area); Mill Creek, Wash. (Seattle area); Plano, Texas (Dallas area); Carlsbad, Calif. (San Diego area); and San Jose, Calif., at the company’s Silicon Valley Technical Center. Beckhoff Canada is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario (Toronto area), and maintains a regional office in Laval, Quebec (Montreal area).
