This is yet another step for B&R toward providing a comprehensive global presence. The manager of the subsidiary in Turkey is Adnan Gülaç, who has over 15 years experience in the automation industry and has been working for B&R for several years. "We've set our goals high," says Gülaç explaining the expectations for the new subsidiary. "We serve the entire OEM market and aim to establish B&R as an innovative company in Turkey. In addition, we need to actively support engineering tasks, introduce our customers to new types of automation solutions and strengthen the Turkish OEM market in order to more effectively compete on the global stage."
