Lenze Receives Prestigious “First Team” Award

Lenze recognized for innovation, leadership and excellence of automation and technology in drives category

UXBRIDGE, MA - January 27, 2016 - Leading global manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technology, Lenze has been recognized by Automation World magazine with a First Team Leader in Automation Award for drives technology. The 2015 recipients were selected based on an Automation World web-based survey asking industry respondents to choose preferred partners. Automation professionals were invited to vote for their favorite automation vendors in the unaided-recall surveys.

"We're proud to be recognized for our drives solutions and honored to receive this award from Automation World, one of the leading publications serving automation industry professionals," said Susan Duval, marketing manager, Lenze Americas. "We pride ourselves on delivering the right drive solutions to our customers."
Automation World's Leadership in Automation program highlights readers' preferred suppliers across a variety of automation technology categories. Automation World asked readers and community-wide industry respondents to identify their preferred automation providers in almost 50 categories, representing the wide range of automation technologies, software and equipment used by professionals across discrete, batch and continuous process and manufacturing sectors. The survey utilized an unaided recall format, so respondents were not provided lists of pre-selected companies.
