System integrator Advanced Automation expands westward

05/12/2006


Advanced Automation Inc., based in Exton, PA, expands with a new office in Overland Park, KS, its first location in that U.S. region. Michael Gansman will serve as district business manager, the company said in a late April announcement. Advanced Automation, a certified member of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) , says it creates integrated solutions that enable clients to control, improve, and optimize their manufacturing process through the use of advanced information technologies, with experience in food and beverage, consumer package goods, pharmaceutical, metals, water and wastewater, and commercial printing industries.

“This new office will enable us to provide more responsive, firsthand manufacturing information support services to our growing client base in this region,” Gansman explained. “Not only are we at the heart of the Kansas City metropolitan area, but this new central U.S. location brings us close to almost half of the country’s largest cities.”

Gansman has experience in business management, client development and retention, project management, and consultative solution development, in the region over the past 15 years, says Advanced Automation vice president Martin Michael, adding that he has an “excellent perspective on the needs of the area’s manufacturers.” Gansman previously served as director of business development in a 12-state region in the Central U.S., and worked at Controls Midwest and Black & Veatch Corp.
