Online shop Automation24 celebrates 10 year anniversary
16 Jun 2021
Automation24 GmbH was founded ten years ago. What began as a start-up in May 2011, quickly grew into an internationally active company.
Today the online shop for automation technology serves more than 100,000 customers in ten European countries and the USA.
“The coronavirus pandemic did not damage our business,” says Katharina Messerschmidt, managing director (marketing, sales and HR) at Automation24. “Together with our subsidiary in the USA, we managed to generate an increase in turnover of 19% over the past year.”
Complete automation technology product range
Automation professionals can currently find around 6,000 products from more than 40 brand manufacturers at automation24.co.uk. Product lines range from sensor systems, process instrumentation, control systems and drive technology, to industrial communication technology, measuring and regulation technology, control and signalling devices, and enclosures/control cabinets.
“This year, with the addition of Endress + Hauser, we have taken the first step towards expanding our product range in the area of process instrumentation,” adds Messerschmidt. “Within this context, services are also to be expanded further. In doing so, we are holding firm to our strategy and steering clear of the use of branches and on-site sales representatives.”
As a 100% online shop, Automation24 offers its customers technical support via telephone, email, Live Chat, Microsoft Teams and remote support via TeamViewer. When putting together its product range, the company places value on maintaining high availability and fast shipping. All products are available from Automation24, offering great value for money from the very first item, even with the smallest of purchase volumes, says the company.
