Exton, PA – Three affiliated system integrators—Advanced Automation, Innovative Automation & Engineering, and Engro Innovative Automation—are now working under the unified company name of Avanceon. The company provides manufacturers worldwide with engineering services, system integration solutions, and support.
The June 30 announcement from Avanceon says that, since March 1, 2007, when the three companies became affiliated, they have successfully worked to become one global enterprise, and the new company name will help to reinforce the single brand identity that has emerged over the last 16 months.

“This move is part of a global restructuring of our company,” said Robert Zeigenfuse, formerly president and CEO of Advanced Automation, who will now serve as CEO of the newly named Avanceon LP. “It will make Avanceon much stronger, with significant working capital, and the ability to leverage the technology and business process knowledge from a global community.”
“In the United States,” Zeigenfuse said, “Avanceon will continue to provide the same level of manufacturing technology solutions, support and service—in control systems, manufacturing execution system (MES) deployment, and technology support services—that has been the hallmark of Advanced Automation for more than two decades, and he added, “earned us
honors” from Control Engineering .
Bakhtiar Wain, former president of EIAL and IAEF and now the president of Regional Operations Centers in Dubai and Lahore, said, “We believe our new name, Avanceon, supports the value of the brand, and it communicates the unique strengths and memorable attributes that are important to our customers around the world.”

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
