As part of a major reorganization, industrial giant Siemens AG today announced the formation of a new U.S. entity known as Siemens Industry Inc. (www.usa.siemens.com/Industry) that merges four former companies—including automation supplier Siemens Energy & Automation Inc. (SE&A)—into a single operation. The new corporate structure is effective Oct. 1. Daryl D. Dulaney, 56, has been named president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Siemens Industry Inc. The newly formed unit now becomes the U.S. affiliate of Siemens’ global Industry sector business, said Siemens, which has global headquarters in Munich, Germany.

Dulaney has served since 2005 as president and CEO of Siemens Building Technologies Inc., Chicago, which has also been merged into Siemens Industry Inc. In addition to leading Siemens Industry Inc., Dulaney will continue to serve as president of Building Technologies, one of six divisions within the new Siemens Industry organization, said a spokesperson.

Dennis Sadlowski, former president and CEO of SE&A, Alpharetta, Ga., has left the company to pursue other opportunities, the spokesperson said. Raj Batra, former vice president, Automation & Motion, for SE&A, takes over as president of the Industry Automation division within Siemens Industry Inc. The Industry Automation division, based in Alpharetta, Ga., encompasses automation products including programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and controls for discrete and process automation. Another division— Industry Solutions—includes the former SE&A services and solutions group, and will be headed by Jagganath Rao, who comes to Alpharetta from Singapore, according to the spokesperson.

Four into one

In addition to SE&A and Siemens Building Technologies, other companies that now have been merged to become Siemens Industry Inc. are Siemens Transportation Systems Inc., Sacramento, Calif., and Siemens VAI Services LLC, a metal technologies group with U.S. operations in Pittsburgh.

Siemens announced in 2007 that it was globally aligning its businesses into three sectors: Healthcare, Energy and Industry. The Healthcare and Energy realignments were completed earlier in the United States, said the spokesperson, with the formation of Siemens Industry Inc. being the third and final U.S. step in that realignment.

Siemens Industry Inc. will provide its U.S. customers in the fields of industry and infrastructure with integrated automation technologies as well as comprehensive industry-specific solutions, the company said. With more than 30,000 employees in 480 locations across the country, Siemens Industry will consist of six divisions including Industry Solutions, Industry Automation, Drive Technologies, Building Technologies, Mobility and Osram Sylvania.

“As Siemens Industry, we will be better positioned to create sustainable value as a fully-integrated technology company with products and solutions that reduce costs and deliver environmental benefits,” said Dulaney.  “Siemens Industry has brought together the best people and will now have the strongest customer focus and most innovative portfolio in the marketplace. As a unified entity with simplified points of contact and streamlined processes, we will continue to help customers meet their challenges and be more competitive by enhancing their productivity, sustainability and profitability.”
