Siemens offers ‘tailor-fitted’ solutions for RP industries

AS three of the country’s important industry in areas of manufacturing, utility, and transportation brace for challenges amid economic slowdown and domestic population growth, the local subsidiary of Europe’s engineering conglomerate giant Siemens Inc. has vowed to provide tailor-fitted or comprehensive industry solutions for Philippine companies.

“We are determined to become a helping partner as the Philippines moves forward to achieving greater success in those major industries,” said Adrian Wood, president and chief executive officer of Siemens Inc. Philippines.

Wood expressed confidence that exporting companies dealing in industrial processes today are more optimistic to integrate automation and solutions to maximize their efficiency and production.

Filipino food exporters, for instance, are enjoying a good following and demand for marine and agricultural products in Taiwan.

According to Antonio Basilio, resident representative of Manila Economic and Cultural Office, the country’s exports to Taiwan improved by 25 percent to $10.1 million from $8 million last year.

The anticipation for exports improvement is further extended by economists to manufacturing electronic raw materials.

Wood said “that’s why for every manufacturing process, we assure clients’ operations are streamlined and optimized.”

“More efficient production processes mean higher production volume which translates to cheaper goods. Siemens is committed to provide the modernization needs of the Philippines’ industry sector, which will pave the way for the country’s progress as well,” he said.

Among corporations that utilized the Siemens’s patented factory automation solutions include Monde M.Y. San Corp., San Miguel Corp., Asia Brewery Inc., United Laboratories, Holcim and Lafarge.

Under Siemens’s affiliated companies which comprised of Siemens Power Operations Inc. and Osram Philippines Ltd. Corp., utility needs of residential, industrial and agricultural communities have been empowered.

Its water treatment systems have provide relief to people with previous struggles in sanitation and distribution, while its lighting solutions promotes both cost and energy efficiencies for energy-centered types of businesses.

“We are committed to continue bringing innovation that would impact the lives of the next generation of Filipinos,” Wood said.

Siemens’s key businesses in the Philippines include automation and control, industrial solutions, information technology products and services, medical solutions, power (generation, transmission and distribution), Siemen’s IT solutions and services, and transportation.
