Copa-Data has opened a UK office, providing localised technical support and sales for its HMI/SCADA system zenOn. Copa-Data UK Ltd will support zenOn from Cheshire under the management of experienced SCADA veteran Duncan Fletcher.
Copa-Data CEO Thomas Punzenberger is optimistic about the future, saying: "In recent years, zenOn SCADA and HMI sales have grown by 30 per cent internationally. Mr Fletcher's extensive knowledge and experience will underpin Copa-Data UK, providing reliable support for customers and a solid base for growth in Britain."
Managing Director Duncan Fletcher is excited to be joining Copa-Data, commenting: "Copa-Data UK will build on existing high-profile applications, providing a solid base for local technical support and sales.
"There are very important reasons why I think customers will look at zenOn: firstly zenOn is independent software - so you only buy what you need and are not tied in to a big automation provider; secondly, Copa-Data is committed to staying ahead of the pack with third-party support and innovative features that provide tangible benefits to customers."
