July 3, 2024
Automation Group rechristened as part of E Tech Group
E Tech Group reported June 4 that the Automation Group brand it acquired in October 2023 has been renamed, and will operate under the E Tech Group name. The transition to the new name will reportedly be seamless for clients and partners. All existing commitments will remain in place to ensure continuity and stability.
“The strategic direction and growth mindset of E Tech Group aligned seamlessly with that of Automation Group. Our company has always placed a strong emphasis on taking care of our people, both internally and externally,” says Randy Ruano, former president of Automation Group. “Our first core value is being people-focused. During discussions with E Tech Group’s leadership, we identified a shared commitment to prioritizing people, which made the decision to move forward with buyout simple.”
The acquisition extended E Tech’s reach into the food and beverage and data center industries. The brand formerly known as Automation Group helped E Tech expand its capabilities in virtualization, cybersecurity, automation design, networking and big data. In addition, the acquisition added 12 locations in California, as well as Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, Indianapolis and Williamsburg, Va. This brand merger is also expected to help E Tech serve as a main automation partner.”
“This investment marks a significant milestone in our journey as a main automation partner. By integrating the expertise and resources of Automation Group, we're expanding our portfolio of solutions and services to meet the evolving needs of our clients,” adds Matt Wise, CEO at E Tech Group. “This move strengthens our presence in key industries like food and beverage and data centers, and enhances E Tech's automation solutions that our clients know and trust. For our clients, this means access to a broader range of solutions and a seamless experience. For our employees, it opens new avenues for collaboration, growth, and professional development within a larger, more dynamic organization. And, for our stakeholders, it positions a bright future filled with innovation, growth and shared success.”
