Rockwell Automation announces intent to acquire Cubic

Rockwell Automation has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Cubic, a company that specialises in modular systems for the construction of electrical panels.

Cubic’s efficient and flexible modular systems combined with Rockwell’s intelligent devices and industry expertise will benefit customers by offering faster time to market, enabling broader plant-wide applications for intelligent motor control, and generating smart data to increase sustainability and productivity.

Cubic’s established partner model will allow Rockwell to build an expanded Partner Network for intelligent motor control offerings in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The company will bring new customers and partners in hybrid and process industries. Additionally, Cubic will broaden Rockwell’s market access in renewable energy and data centre solutions.

“Cubic’s innovative motor control solutions strengthen our portfolio of leading intelligent motor control technologies,” said Bob Buttermore, vice president and general manager of Rockwell’s Power Control Business. “We are pleased to welcome a talented team with specialised expertise in structural design, power systems, and global standards.”

Jacob Moller Knudsen, CEO of Cubic, said: “Joining Rockwell will enable us to expand our relationships and accelerate our global growth. This is a perfect match that will allow us to offer our customers the best solutions going forward.”
