YORK, PA and BEIJING -- Red Lion Controls announced that the company has been honored for its consistent commitment to the sustainable development of China's automation industry by Automation Panorama magazine. Red Lion was recently named a Top Ten New Outstanding Enterprise within China's Automation Industry for 2013 at the2014 China Automation Industry Annual Conference (CAIAC) held in Beijing.
The 2014 CAIAC awards, hosted by the China Automation Society and co-organized by the China Instrument Industry Association, China Computer Industry Association, National Technology Committee of Machinery Safety Standardization and National Technology Committee of Industrial Process Measurement and Control Standardization, are designed to recognize enterprises that have made outstanding contributions to the industrial automation industry over the past year. Award recipients are determined based on the combined feedback of an expert committee and online voting polls.
"Red Lion is honored to receive such a prestigious award, as it demonstrates the success and value of what we've been doing over the past few years in China," said Michael Wang, general manager of greater China for Red Lion Controls. "China is an important market for us, and as we further expand our footprint, we look forward to providing reliable, high-quality industrial automation and networking products to the vertical markets that we serve."
China's automation industry is growing strongly amid a sluggish global economy, and it's believed that the industrial industry will continue to flourish over the years to come. The innovative contributions Red Lion has made to drive forward the growth of industrial automation and networking in China for transportation, city utilities, oil & gas and energy field applications were a significant deciding factor for this award.
In addition to the CAIAC award, Red Lion was also selected as a Top New Cutting-Edge Company by China's leading automation portal gongkong.com for its technology leadership and innovative contributions. This follows Red Lion's N-Tron series NT24k managed Gigabit Ethernet switches receiving a Golden Mousetrap award in the U.S. for Industrial Networking Technologies in the Automation and Control category earlier this year.
