Schneider Electric launched its Industry NOW Express, a traveling showcase of its automation, control and energy management solutions. Attendees will meet the company's industry experts and local Automation and Control Excellence (ACE) distributors, see live machine and software demos, attend technical seminars and workshops and discuss how Schneider Electric can help them meet their everyday energy management challenges with its comprehensive energy solutions.

“Increased operational costs in areas critical to our customers such as raw materials and energy are making it vital for an industrial organization to do more with less,” said Mark Mancini, vice president, end user sales and marketing, Industry Business, Schneider Electric. “These events provide the tools to help managers implement energy management solutions, deploy upgrades and collaborative architectures faster and increase the transparency of their processes — all of which allows for more efficient and impactful decisions.”

The event will provide participants with sessions on the latest automation and control trends, covering topics such as safety, security, energy management and operational efficiency. The Express will be in Atlanta, Dec. 5-6; Los Angeles, Jan. 23-24, 2013; and Dallas-Fort Worth Feb. 6-7.
