NHP Electrical Engineering Products has expanded its distribution deal with Rockwell Automation with the acquisition of the Rockwell Automation related business assets from Rexel Industrial Automation. The acquisition expands NHP’s existing distribution coverage for Rockwell Automation to include New South Wales and South East Queensland and cover the entire South Pacific region.

“With the acquisition of the Rockwell Automation related business assets from Rexel Industrial Automation which includes a strong team of automation professionals, we have strengthened NHP’s position as the local choice for specialist electrical and automation products, systems and solutions.

“As the exclusive distributor across the entire South Pacific for Rockwell Automation combined with NHP’s existing complimentary product solutions and value-add manufacturing capabilities, we have the largest coverage of automation and control solutions in the region,” said NHP’s CEO and Managing Director, Stephen Coop.

Scott Wooldridge, Managing Director Australia and New Zealand, Rockwell Automation, added: “We are proud and excited to be expanding our relationship with NHP across the South Pacific region as we work together to further enhance the efficiency of our customers, by delivering smarter, safer and more sustainable operational outcomes through Rockwell Automation’s Connected Enterprise solutions and by providing a simpler model to engage with our businesses across the South Pacific. We would like to thank Rexel for their strong partnership and collaboration over the past 17 years in this region.”

NHP will assume responsibility for the distribution of Rockwell Automation throughout the entire South Pacific region on 1st May 2018. During April 2018, NHP and Rexel Industrial Automation will continue to trade as separate entities.
