“Invensys Operations Management has had a presence in South Africa for more than 20 years, supported by our strong ecosystem of regional partners, but now we will be represented solely and directly by EOH,” said Sudipta Bhattacharya, president and chief executive officer for IOM. “The agreement is largely attributable to EOH’s extensive knowledge in the mining and manufacturing sectors, as well as its reach in the local market. We believe it will broaden the scope of our product and service offerings in sub-Saharan Africa and help us execute and deliver upon projects more cost effectively. Additionally, EOH’s impeccable record of success as a Level 3 BBBEE-rated business solidified the decision.” 
IOM is a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries. Headquartered in Plano, Texas, its solutions are utilised by more than 40,000 clients around the world in more than 200,000 plants and facilities. The new office in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, will serve as the primary point of contact for IOM in the region.
EOH’s solid track record in the mining and manufacturing sector creates a solid foundation for IOM to work from, said Asher Bohbot, chief executive officer of EOH. “South Africa has an aggressive energy expansion goal as the leading economic power in Africa and is a key player in the continent’s energy and oil industries. South Africa has an increasingly vital role in the global process industry, including the upstream oil and gas and power generation markets, with coal-based fuels being a significant component of the nation’s energy sector. Our new agreement with Invensys Operations Management allows us to deliver exceptional service and support to these important customers as they pursue real-time operational excellence.”
Besides project engineering, the new IOM facility at EOH will include a training and customer support service centre, as well as a sales and marketing point of contact. Invensys offerings include process control engineering that is utilised by large companies such as Eskom and Sasol in the form of distributed control systems (DCS) to control their processes, boilers and electrical power grids. Some of the global brands that fall within the Invensys stable include Eurotherm, Foxboro, InFusion, SimSci-Esscor, Triconex and Wonderware. EOH has been the exclusive provider of Wonderware software and services in the region for more than eight years.
“The newly established Invensys Operations Management office at EOH will be the main point of contact for clients, as well as for Invensys-supplied products, solutions and services. With the continued support of the South African community, government officials and our strong network of South African partners, EOH looks forward to developing more business for the benefit of our clients and communities in the region,” said Bohbot.
