Rockwell Automation Acquires ESC Services

Rockwell Automation Inc has announced that it has purchased the assets of ESC Services Inc, a global hazardous energy control provider of lockout-tagout services and solutions.

Matt Fordenwalt, Rockwell Automation consulting business manager said  “ESC Services will enable Rockwell Automation customers to increase asset utilization and strengthen enterprise risk management, while adding safety to our growing portfolio of data-driven, cloud-enabled services.”

The unique ESC methodology utilizes Quick Response (QR) codes that can be scanned to obtain asset information and streamline compliance with both external regulations and internal safety policies. “The global use of lockout-tagout is expanding among multi-national corporations, and represents a great growth opportunity,” said Kelly Michalscheck, president, ESC Services. “This acquisition enables us to extend the ESC Services lockout-tagout procedures and ScanESC solutions to tens of thousands of additional OEM machines, delivering more value and unique offerings to the extensive global channels of Rockwell Automation.”

ESC Services, based in Franklin, Wisconsin, will be integrated into the Rockwell Automation Control Products & Solutions segment as part of its customer support and maintenance business unit. The ScanESC lockout-tagout technology and solutions will be on display at the upcoming Rockwell US Automation Fair, scheduled for November 19-20, in Anaheim.
